Dogs Forever: Purina One Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant

What was the money or product used for?

Unfortunately, Casey and Noah have not been adopted yet. But when they do get adopted the money will be used to help the adopter pay for the food and nutritional supplements that Casey and Noah need since they are seniors.

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

While the grant funding has clearly helped Casey and Noah directly, it has also indirectly helped other dogs, too. Specifically, money that would have otherwise been spent on Casey and Noah is now available to offset expenses associated with other dogs currently (or soon to be) in our care.

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

At this time Casey and Noah have not been adopted. From their Petfinder profile: “Noah (male) and Casey (female) are a bonded pair who would, ideally, love to be adopted together. Although they started out as strays in different counties, the two met in foster care and have been the best of friends ever since. Unfortunately, their foster parents’ health and home situations have changed greatly in recent months, and they are no longer able to provide care.

“Casey is a DNA-tested American Staffordshire terrier, whereas Noah is a red pit mix (perhaps with chocolate Lab?). They each weigh approximately 70 lbs.

“Both Noah and Casey are seniors (10+ years old), but ssshhhh! Don’t tell them! They rollick and play together as if they were half their real age! They are always in a good mood; they never have a bad day.” You can meet them both here.

They did get to go on a trial overnight stay in a home. Someone applied to adopt them — we were all so excited! They stayed the night with the potential adopter, but it didn’t work out so they had to come back to the shelter with us. We do have someone who is supposed to be coming in to meet them who will potentially be putting in an application to adopt or foster them, so we are keeping our fingers crossed.
