Partners for Pets Humane Society: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

The funding provided by the Petfinder Foundation was used to promote the adoption of a dog in our care, Francis. Unfortunately, Francis has not been adopted just yet, but we have high hopes that our sweet girl will find her home very soon, thanks to the Petfinder Foundation's assistance!

We will waive Francis's adoption fee, which is $175, and sponsor one year of her veterinarian-recommended diet. When Francis came to us it was determined that her skin condition was due to allergies. She is required to be kept on a special diet to keep her coat healthy. Each bag of food is roughly $60, with one bag being purchased per month.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Francis came to Partners for Pets on Jan. 31, 2019, after being surrendered by her owner to St. Clair County Animal Care and Control due to her age (she’s 12) and a horrible skin condition due to allergies. Francis was passed up for several weeks at Animal Control due to her age and the way she looked. Partners saw something different. We saw a dog who needed a second chance and some special care. She is an amazing dog, with quite a lot of spunk despite her age. Although Francis has yet to find her happily ever after, we have no doubt her charming forever home is out there. Meet Francis here.
