Animals-R-Family: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

Due to severe arthritis and allergies, Jojo is on a lot of meds. The grant was used to buy two of his medications for one year: Rimadyl and Apoquel.

It allowed us to ensure that he has these meds for a year. They are expensive and we struggle to buy them on our own.

How many pets did this grant help?

One: Jojo.

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

Jojo spent the first eight years of his life living in a cage in a windowless warehouse. He was dumped there as a puppy after his people had cut his ears off at home and called him “Funny Ears.” He now has freedom, but has severe arthritis in his legs and spine. He never got to experience what it is like to be a normal, healthy dog living as a beloved family pet. The good news is that Jojo is getting adopted at the end of April and will only know love and affection, comfort for his arthritis from his Tempur-Pedic dog bed, and lots of yummy food and fun toys for the rest of his days.
