We are able to take in and adopt out close to 1,000 pets a year. Grant money and Sponsor a Pet donations help us to continue providing this adoption opportunity.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Last summer, with funds such as those provided by your Foundation, we were able to take in six Jack Russell terriers in dire need of rescuing from a neglectful hoarding situation in Ohio. All of them needed socialization, extensive medical care, and a nurturing environment in which to help them with their abandonment and trust issues. Within several months, all of them were successfully adopted. (See photos of Diamond, Spirit and Hope.)
