The puppy was able to be vetted and prepped for a permanent home. This big puppy was adopted! The sponsored dog was Hollywood, a chocolate Lab. From his Petfinder profile: “1.5 years old. Friendly and happy. Playful. Loves swimming. Great companion! Good with some dogs (mostly females). Does well in the home and does okay in his crate. Rides well in the car, also. Could use a little work on the leash but he is still like a puppy. He’s a good boy! He will need activities and plenty of chew toys! He is heartworm-positive but has been on the less-invasive treatment method for a few months already. Should be negative in a year! Will come with meds.”

Peninsula Friends of Animals: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

Veterinary services, including kitten wellness check and vaccination costs, for a litter of five kittens we received in May of 2019.

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

Kittens and senior cats are the two classes of kitties that require the largest expenditure of funds and effort. All of our kittens are given veterinary wellness checks and vaccinations before they are available for adoption. We believe this is the foundation of a good, long life for the kittens. In addition, our excellent veterinarians can detect other conditions requiring special care.

Five kittens

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

Perry was the last of a litter of five kittens. After his four siblings were adopted, Perry was desperately lonely until we were able to introduce him to several other kittens about the same age. Perry is very active, but also very loving. He enjoys snuggling on your shoulder for a nice nap, and then will run and jump wildly with his buddies for a play session. Happily, Perry was adopted in early August. His best buddy is now a young cat already in the household, and they enjoy playing together (second photo). His new family reports: “We love Perry! He’s been such an amazing addition!”

Salem was the cat in our care who was older and overlooked by soooo many families because he was not a kitten. The special food helped Salem keep his geriatric digestive system in tip-top condition so that he could concentrate all his attention on giving out purrs to families looking to adopt. He found his forever home after being in our care for several months.

Willow is a 6-year-old Maltese-bichon mix. We saved her from an Amish puppy mill. They no longer had any use for her and were going to euthanize her. We had her vetted and then paid for her to be transported to Maine. In Maine, she was in a foster home for several weeks, learning that people were not bad. She loved nothing more than to snuggle. She was adopted at the end of June by a family in New Hampshire who have another Maltese and she is doing GREAT.

Meadow was pulled from Animal Care Services in order to save her from euthanasia. While she has still not found her forever family, she is currently in the care of one of SAPA!’s incredible foster families. She is still searching for that perfect someone, and we hope to find her the perfect placement very soon! From her Petfinder profile: “Meadow is a 3-year old female weighing about 30 lbs. She is a silly wiggle butt with a cute underbite! She loves meeting new people and knows just how to bring a smile to your face. Will you make her your BFF? ‘I am living in a San Antonio Pets Alive! foster home. By adopting me, you not only give me a new leash on life; you also save the life of an additional pet who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in foster care.’ ” Meet Meadow here.

MEOW Cat Rescue: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

It was designated for one of our longtime shelter residents, Sweet Pea.

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

Sweet Pea is a “hit by car” kitty with spinal injuries that cause her to be incontinent. When we express her bladder about three times each day, she gets treats. This grant will be used to ensure that Sweet Pea is never without the treats she enjoys so much.

Sweet Pea was relinquished to MEOW Cat Rescue from a hoarding situation in which her humans hardly knew her, and certainly hadn’t observed that she had been badly injured by a car and also had a raging infection after having given birth to a litter of kittens. The fact that she survived is a miracle in itself. She has been with us for more than four years and has won the hearts of shelter staff, volunteers and visitors. She is silly and sweet, and such an athlete! We’d love for her to have a home of her own one day, but if that ever happens it will be such a bittersweet day for all of us who would miss her. Meet Sweet Pea here.

One: Doc

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

Doc hasn’t been adopted yet, but he enjoys at least two walks a day with loving staff and/or volunteers. From his Petfinder profile: “Sweet, amazing Doc is a wonderful dog. He loves to fetch all day long. He loves to play in the pond and hang out in the sun and snow. He does not require a lot of exercise, though he does enjoy going for walks and playing with toys. He also enjoys being brushed and will lick your face the whole time you are pampering him! Doc will want you to share your bed at night, but would also be happy with a big comfortable dog bed (or your couch!) Doc should have a large outside area to chase a ball and hang out, as that is what he is happiest doing. Fun fact: He can carry three tennis balls in his mouth at once! Doc will be best in a home where he is the only dog, and he should also not live with cats. While he enjoys the company of other dogs, he prefers to not have to share his space or toys them. He loves meeting new people, and people love to meet him. He has done great with both men and women, and even children. Doc is house-trained and is a lovely gentleman on the leash.” Meet Doc here.
