Jet.com Dog and Cat Food Grant (Invitation Only)

Associated Humane Societies: Jet.com Dog and Cat Food Grant (Invitation Only) Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

The donation of food was used to feed the many cats and dogs we have at our shelter. We are the largest shelter in this area and the number of animals we get in on a daily basis is staggering. This donation was very much appreciated and needed.

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

This donation helped to provide food for so many of those under our care.

How many pets did this grant help?

We have 200 dogs and usually more than 100 cats on any given day, so a very large number of animals were provided for.

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

One of the dogs who benefited from this donation was Ginger (first photo), who is still available for adoption and actually resides as our office dog. Ginger came in very fearful and anxious, so we decided to keep her with us in the office to socialize her. She now loves everyone and is great with cats and dogs her size. She does not care for smaller dogs, so a home with a smaller dog is not recommended. She has a sweet and affectionate personality with everyone and is extremely intelligent. She is spoiled by everyone here, but we still wish for a permanent home for her. Ginger has a special position here, as she visits libraries in the area and the children read to her. Because she is so well-behaved and sweet, she is a favorite!

Salem County Humane Society: Jet.com Dog and Cat Food Grant (Invitation Only) Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

We fed the shelter pets in our care using this donated food.

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The donated food is of higher quality than what we routinely purchase for our cats and dogs. The animals benefited by eating great food and the shelter benefited by saving thousands of dollars on pet food purchases. That money could instead be used to save more animals and paying for spay/neuter, vaccines and vet exams for many more cats and dogs.

How many pets did this grant help?

At any one time, 14 dogs and 60 cats were fed using Jet.com donations.

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

Frankie is only one cat who enjoyed the great food from Jet.com. In his picture, he is so excited about mealtime that he is singing (well, that’s what we would like to imagine!).
