San Nicola Dog Rescue: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

The grant helped find home for a wonderful large 9-year-old blind dog named Jax. He is pretty healthy in general but he can only have prescription food. Four times people tried to foster/adopt him, but four times he was returned to the rescue within the first few days. Finally he got adopted by Cecilia Plunkett, a patient, kind and caring person. She will be using the grant for his medical needs and especially for expensive Royal Canin special-diet prescription food.

I don't think Jax would have been adopted if we had not had the grant to help with his medical needs.

Jax’s adopter, Cecilia, wrote this: “I feel so fortunate to have found my forever friend! Jax finally came into my life after a couple of setbacks, but he was totally worth the wait. He is so calm and happy, which fills my heart. He is teaching me how to relax and breathe deeper, to enjoy the little things in life, and to listen to the birds sing in the morning as we walk along the babbling creek that we take long walks along daily. Jax’s happiness is contagious, as all who meet him just smile at him. I’m not sure who rescued whom. Thank you for letting me be a part of your family of people who wish to rescue animals in need of love.”
