The Pet Rescue Center: Build-A-Bear Youth Humane Education Grant Report

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

Without the support of the Petfinder Foundation and Build-A-Bear, we would not be able to educate the public and the future generation of pet owners about the benefits of adoption, spay/neuter, microchipping, etc.

Beaker is just one of the many pets who have been helped with this grant, through funds and donations that have come in to The Pet Rescue Center as a benefit of us being out more in schools and the community.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Beaker (first photo) has been through a lot in his three years of life, and we are so thankful that we were able to help him. Beaker was brought to us in pretty bad shape, suffering from multiple health conditions that were threatening his life. We stepped in and worked tirelessly to save him. After two months of treatment, Beaker, we are happy to say, is now healthy enough to find his forever home. His loving and amazing personality never wavered during his treatment, even when he needed IV fluids and blood work daily. Beaker has the personality that everyone would hope for in a cat. He is so amazingly sweet, with a silly and playful side that never stops. He has become an absolute staff favorite, with everyone stopping during the day just to say hi to him. Meet Beaker:
