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

Five-year-old Dede was picked up as a stray, wandering the streets. But other than some scabbing on her back near her tail, she was friendly and healthy. After being transferred to Valley Humane Society, Dede quickly found her forever family, who immediately set about renaming the tiny schnauzer mix. They tell us, “Family members put out many names for Dede, but the final decision was Sophie! Sophie had no difficulty fitting in. She is a very friendly dog and greets all visitors as new friends!” Sophie usually hangs out with her new guardian, but often sits on top of the couch looking out the window. When she needs a nap, she sleeps on a pillow on the couch. Sophie has many stuffed toys that she enjoys tossing around, and goes on a fast-paced walk with her guardian every morning. She sleeps cuddled up next to her on the bed, and likes to lie out on the deck in the sun. They add, “Thank you so much for making Sophie available for adoption!”
