Greener Days Ahead Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Greener Days Ahead used the grant money to purchase 715 lbs. of food.
We had a donor who matched your grant, so that amount kept our dogs fed for nearly three months and kept us out of the stores and focused on intakes and adoptions.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Twenty of 27 have been adopted to-date. Brody (first photo) has needed special attention during his first days after coming into rescue and he is not adopted yet; and we are still working with him. Because we’ve had to spend additional funds on anxiety medication for him and time training him, knowing that his food was covered has been a blessing. Meet Brody here.
Our absolute best adoption was Lemon, now Maverick (second photo)! Her adopter came in looking for a German shepherd pal for her German shepherd. The more I spoke with her, and got to understand the needs of her family and her dog, I talked her into a hound mix we had who I felt would be a good fit. It was an instant hit and they keep me posted regularly. Pictured is Bruno (third photo) the shepherd in the story with Lemon; both are adopted.
Loki (sixth photo) was the first pet to be adopted after the grant.
