Vaccinations increase adoptions

Buckeye: a happy and recently adopted vaccinated dogVaccinations make a difference in adoptions: just ask Mike Schroth, the Putnam County Dog Warden in Ohio. His shelter received funding through the Foundation for bordetella (kennel cough) vaccinations.

"I believe that being able to provide the dogs with bordetella vaccine has made a great improvement at the shelter. Before I was able to get the grant money, none of the dogs were vaccinated prior to adoption and I think that it made it more difficult for the dogs to get adopted. My adoptions have been on the increase and I believe, in part, that having the dogs vaccniated makes all the dogs more appealing," he wrote to Foundation. "Most adopters have commented on how great it is to have the dogs vaccinated. I have even had several people come back to the Putnam County Dog Shelter to adopt another dog from the shelter because of the great success from the first adoption." supports Foundation's bordetella vaccination grants through the Gifts That Give More program. Since 2008,'s funding has helped more than 110,000 dogs throughout the United States receive bordetella vaccinations.
