The money was used to buy food for the animals in our care.
Typically, our food is purchased by the pallet at a deep discount from the organization Greater Good. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, trucks discontinued the deliveries and food was no longer available to us. This grant from Petfinder Foundation helped to feed the animals of Little Lotus Rescue & Sanctuary.
Omri is an Australian Shepherd who was surrendered to Little Lotus Rescue & Sanctuary when his owner became terminally ill and could no longer provide the quality of life he thought that Omri deserved. Omri is a bright, happy, and EXTREMELY active young boy. He was posted on Petfinder.com and a young medical professional who spends all of her spare time out in the wilderness camping, hiking, and climbing found him. After we spoke with her and introduced them during a socially distanced meet-and-greet, everyone decided that it could be an amazing fit! Omri now lives a life of exploring in the mountains on his weekends. The pandemic has been difficult for our organization, but with the help of the Petfinder Foundation, we have been able to continue feeding the animals in our care and adopting animals into wonderful homes!
