ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Traverse Outdoor and the Cherryland Humane society are working together to find homes for outdoor loving rescue dogs. The importance of canine communication and training will dramatically assist in placing these amazing dogs in their forever-family homes.
Traverse Outdoor Landscaping and Irrigation has offered to establish a scholarship fund for dogs that display a greater need for behavior training. The fund is awarded by CHS staff after careful analysis suggests that the availability of the class will greatly improve the placement of these “Outdoor Lovin’ Dogs”.
Traverse Outdoor is a Traverse City based landscaping and irrigation company with over 40 years of service to the community.
450 DOGS WERE ADOPTED IN 2018-2020
Of those dogs benefited from the Canine Behavior Training Program (CBTP) Scholarship Fund provided by Traverse Outdoor Landscaping & Irrigation!
45% of those dogs were hard to adopt dogs OR were at risk of returning to the shelter due to behavioral concerns.
With the help of the Training Program, our wonderful staff and volunteers, along with Traverse Outdoor’s support… these dogs are in loving homes learning how to be dogs and overcoming their fearful pasts.
Thank you to Traverse Outdoor and all of our amazing adopters!
