Palm Springs Animal Shelter: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

Alas, Jax has not yet been adopted so the funds have not been spent.

We would like to ask for a three-month extension on the grant in order to get Jax adopted. Although we have advertised Jax and the grant on social media, we regret to say Jax remains unadopted. Palm Springs is a highly seasonal resort town -- our population almost triples from November to April. Summer -- when our temperatures reach triple digits -- is our slow season. Now that the snowbirds are returning, we hope to find Jax his forever home and hope that you will agree to a three-month extension.

How many pets did this grant help?

It is for one dog, Jax.

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

The Petfinder Foundation awarded our shelter $967.25 to pay for Jax’s medical care after adoption. Jax is a senior dog who suffers from arthritis but is otherwise quite healthy. He requires pills daily and a monthly shot. Jax is an older dude who wants to be your one and only companion in the home. A yard would be nice and Jax enjoys regular walks. If you are a couch potato, Jax likes to be one too. Jax would be very content and prefers just adults in the home. Jax needs love and attention, just like kids! Meet Jax:
