Burbank Animal Shelter: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Donations are used to provide for our animals while we place them in their forever homes through adoption. Funds are used to purchase anything from food, beds, and litter to more specific things as needed such as medication.
Petfinder Foundation grants help our shelter continue to care for our pets until they are adopted. Many of the animals we care for come in with special needs, indicating a longer stay for those animals at the shelter while they are ready to be adopted. Outside assistance allows our shelter to provide long-term services.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Alfie (pictured) was brought into our shelter as a stray and was with us for about one month before being adopted. He was a sweet cat who had been living outside. He was very sweet and eventually captured the heart of his adopter and went off to his ideal home. Stevie is another of our cats who has been at the shelter for about eight months. Stevie is a part of our socialization program because he needs a bit more attention than others to get him ready for adoption. Grants allow us to provide these services to our special-needs or long-term animals.
