Naperville Area Humane Society: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

These funds were able to cover the cost of spay surgeries for three dogs and one neuter surgery for a kitten.

This grant was able to help us to provide the needed spay/neuter surgeries to four pets, which enabled us to fast-track those animals into adoption. Our adoptions by appointment have successfully enabled us to adopt out animals during COVID.

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

Stella (fourth photo) arrived to NAHS during COVID from a rescue transport that came from Arkansas. Stella was on death row and about to be euthanized if she was not transferred out. NAHS took in Stella right before her time was up, and thanks to this Petfinder Foundation grant, she was spayed and adopted within a week of arriving to us.

Here is an update from Stella’s new family: “We adopted Stella from NAHS and she has been the best pup. She loves the couch, piles of blankets, tennis balls, and her baby (a stuffed dog). She’s doing great walking on the leash and can’t wait to go to training once training facilities open again. She is incredibly smart and already knows how to sit, lie down, and give paw. Thank you for making the adoption process go smoothly. We just adore her.”
