Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Quincy (first photo) was one of four puppies who were brought to us. These giant and fluffy puppies were so adorable, they found their forever homes quickly. Thanks to this grant, Quincy was able to be neutered and head to his forever home. Since finishing the grant, all of Quincy’s siblings have been adopted and are also heading home.

Cow (second photo) was picked up as a stray, unaltered, and brought to Stray Hearts, but this cutie wasn’t here for long before she found her forever home. We were able to use this grant money to get her altered and into her new home.

Mickey (first photo), pictured with A Forever Home Animal Rescue president and owner Lori Mastrantoni, is a 7-year-old dachshund who is paralyzed in his back legs. He is one of many dogs who have received and are receiving the vaccines partially paid for by the $250 Petfinder Foundation grant. We are tremendously grateful for this help. With the exception of BrynLee (second photo) and Olaf (third photo), these dogs will require careful placement. We are hopeful that will happen soon. In the meantime, they are being well taken care of at the rescue.
