Montgomery Humane Society: Petfinder Adoption Options in Action Grant (Invitation Only)

What was the money or product used for?

A BIG thank you from of all of us here at The Montgomery Humane Society. The $1,500 grant that we received was used for the purchase of items to allow us to improve our socialization and enrichment program. This last fiscal year, our organization has made these programs one our top priorities.

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

We have had great success with our community spay/neuter and we have shown a 40% decrease in the number of animals brought to our shelter.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Thanks to the grant, we have been making “Busy Buckets” and “Busy Bones” to add to our current play toys to keep those animals still in our facility mentally stimulated and healthy. To watch our loved ones that we care for daily play with these two items brings us such joy and certainly helps with overall adoption rates. Again, from all of us here in Montgomery, Alabama, thank you for making this all possible.

I was lost recently and was rescued by a wonderful shelter employee! She found me and took care of me until I got big enough to go up for adoption. Right now I have all of my vaccinations for my age, I have a microchip, and I have been neutered. I am about three months old so I am still just a baby! Why don’t you come out for a visit? I am adorable and you won’t be able to leave without me!” Meet Spincer:
