Valley Humane Society: Kia Pet Adoption Grant Report

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

This grant provided fee-waived adoptions during a critical period for our shelter. With kitten season in full swing, and a lull in adoption applications, this grant helped us complete 24 adoptions in a five-day period. Being able to incentivize adoptions was a huge win for our organization. We simply would not have had this kind of week without the Petfinder Foundation's and Kia's help.

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

The Kia Pet Adoption Grant helped 24 animals, but one kitten, named Siggis, needed some extra help to make his adoption come through last week.

Siggis, along with several littermates, came to the shelter in April struggling to thrive. The proverbial runt of the litter, Siggis was underweight. This meant a couple of things: 1) He could not be neutered along with his littermates and 2) he would likely be with Valley Humane at least three more weeks.
