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

Shyla was a wonderful, sweet mixed-breed senior dog who found her way to the Rescued Rescuers via the shelter. As a dachshund rescue, we have the hardest time placing the mixed breeds, and because of Shyla’s breed mix, along with her age and her medical condition, she was constantly overlooked and had been with us for much longer than usual. We looked to the generous Petfinder Foundation grant to help cover her known future medical costs. Once we did that, magically the right family found her and she is now living the life of luxury. Thank you, Petfinder Foundation!
