How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
We rescue senior, special-needs and medically needy animals (mostly). We take the animals whom no one else will help and other rescues leave behind. These animals need an average of $500 in medical care and we receive an average of $57 in adoption fees for each animal. These Sponsor a Pet donations help bridge the gap. All four animals were adopted into lovely homes. Two of them have since passed on from natural causes; the other two are loved and happy.
