Des Moines County Humane Society: Grant Report

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

The money was used to sponsor the adoption fee of two older animals who might have not otherwise been adopted.

It allowed us to provide a cost-free adoption for the owners and allowed them to concentrate their monies on purchasing items needed to care for elderly dogs.

This adoption brought tears to our eyes…Sweet 13-year-old Isabella found a wonderful home with an experienced Chihuahua dad! This elderly Chihuahua came to us after being run over by a vehicle. She is healing nicely and will be very well taken care of by her new dad. Isabella also has two Chihuahua sisters to teach her the ropes of her new home! We are so very happy for Isabella and her new family! A big thank you to her dad for adopting from the Des Moines County Humane Society. And a big thank you to the Petfinder Foundation for the 2020 Purina Spring into Adoption Grant!
