Morris Darbo, Responsible Pet Ownership/Anti-Pet Eating Program, Impact Grant 2016
Grantee Name: Morris Darbo
Project Name: Responsible Pet Ownership/Anti-Pet Eating Program
Grant Location: Voinjama City, Liberia
Funding Partner: The Greenbaum Foundation
Project Description: Sadly, Liberia is one country where dogs are kept in horrendous conditions that are far below what is considered humane. Dogs are left to roam around in search of food, feeding them with leftover food on the ground exposing them to diseases and parasites and no veterinary care and treatment when they are sick or injured. Some people also eat dog meats during celebrations. With this Impact Grant, we will ensure that dogs and their owners are happy, healthy and friendly. The program will help to improve the bond between dogs and their owners, and reduced dog meat eating.
