Animal Welfare League: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

A/D Urgent Care pet food

We receive animals who were found lost and alone. It can be very scary to be in an environment unfamiliar to an animal. Some animals are so terrified, they refuse to eat. Special food with good-smelling ingredients helps encourage those animals to eat. After a while, trust is established and the animals' true colors start to shine. By the time an animal goes up for adoption, he or she is happy and thriving, and therefore more appealing to potential adopters.

How many pets did this grant help?

One beautiful little girl (Lab/Staff mix) whom we call Annie

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

Annie is a 1-year-old female Lab/Staff mix. She was brought to AWL as a stray, completely terrified and weak. We don’t know how long she had been out there. When she arrived, she needed food, water and protection. Annie refused to eat or even make eye contact. One of our vet techs began to slowly build trust with her. She provided Annie with Hill’s Prescription Diet a/d Urgent Care food and crawled into the cage with Annie to have breakfast with her every morning. Now Annie is a completely different dog. She is the sweetest girl you will ever meet and will be placed on the adoption floor in a few days. Thank you for helping us to help her.
