Small Animal Enrichment

Toys and treats for the rabbits, guineas, and more

We sustain several enrichment programs, each designed to bring a healthy form of enrichment to the animals during their time at the shelter. Being in a kennel all day is no fun, so Friends of GCAS gives the dogs healthy, safe ways to combat stress and be a normal dog while waiting for their families to take them home.

 

Dehydrated chicken provides a safe, tasty and longer lasting treat! The shelter dogs love it!

Our Holiday Miracle

Because of your generous donations, we were able to purchase, build, and deliver 55 Kuranda beds to the shelter dogs in time for the holidays. Special thanks to Wendy and Ed Smithey and friends for their help in assembling the beds! Spending the holidays in the shelter is no fun, but at least the dogs got to be a little more comfortable!

Pupdate: we did it! Each dog received a bed in their kennel!

It’s #WishlistWednesday and some of our older friends at Guilford County Animal Services need new Kuranda Dog Beds.

We’re doing a “Dog Bed Bingo” to get our friends into beds before the holidays.

Every $ donation will reveal a new friend available for #adoption from our shelter!

The shelter can only utilize certain types of beds, so we are raising funds to order for the bulk discount.

Cat enrichment is important, too! 
The cats at the shelter received new toys, hideouts, and catnip from our group.

THANK YOU
to the kiddos and parents from Jefferson Elementary's Junior Beta Club for your help in stuffing Kongs to provide for our shelter dogs! What a huge help!

NYLABONE DRIVE

In our FIRST WEEEK, we donated over 300 Nylabones to Guilford County Animal Shelter. These Nylabones provide in-kennel enrichment to the dogs at GCAS. Chewing is a natural stress reliever, and these bones provide a safe outlet for the dogs to achieve this. Thank you for your support!
