Bev Saiz and Susan Taney, Keeping Families Together

Date grant awarded: May 30, 2016

In Harvard, Illinois, Susan Taney established Lost Dogs Illinois, a grassroots organization dedicated to fostering local, regional and state-wide partnerships with individuals and organizations to provide education, support and assistance to owners of lost dogs. As recent recipients of a seed grant, Bev Saiz and Susan have created Keeping Families Together, a video series that will help further the organization’s mission and message, primarily focusing on the importance behind micro chipping. These short clips will be posted to the organization’s website and social media accounts, allowing for a broad network to be reached.
