Hawaii Island Humane Society: Grant Report

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

The funds from this grant were used to offer fee-reduced pet adoptions.

Offering reduced adoption fees through adoption specials helped us advertise our available animals in fun ways, promote adoption and help animals find their forever homes.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

We had three dogs at our Kona shelter, Paisley, Proctor and J.B., who had been patiently waiting for their new homes for months. One was very shy, one was a big goof, and the third was a senior. Thanks to the Petfinder Foundation grant, we were able to advertise these dogs (and all the other adoptable animals) and promote their half-off adoption fees. On the same day, Saturday April 28, ALL THREE were adopted into loving homes! It was such great news. Happy dogs, happy families and super happy staff!
