Bond County Humane Society: Purina Consider A Shelter Pet Grant Report

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

The Purina Consider a Shelter Pet Adoption Grant, given as $300, was used from October through December 2017 to subsidize the adoption fees of several pets (dogs and cats), all of whom found great homes and are no longer available for adoption.

Bond County Humane Society depends upon the generosity of those like the Petfinder Foundation and Purina to get our pets into the public domain AND to get them adopted. In the case of each of the pets adopted through the Purina Consider a Shelter Pet Adoption Grant, s/he got a loving, forever home in part due to the $50-off adoption so helpfully provided by this grant. We are grateful that the adoption of these six pets also gave us the ability to help six other homeless pets.

How many pets did this grant help?

This grant helped six pets and their new families, and also freed up our shelter's resources to save six other pets in their places!

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

Dear Petfinder Foundation and Purina: Hello, and thank you for asking about the stories of some of the several pets assisted by this grant. One of the pets and her family who were helped by this Purina/Petfinder Foundation grant is a chocolate Lab named Kona. Kona’s guardian reports that “she loves to play [and] hugs me every morning … and gives kisses. She loves to help me bring up food from my freezer. She will also bring in the mail for us.” Kona is in training and a very eager learner.” The cute first photograph shows the ever-helpful Kona!

Another pet assisted by this PFF/Purina grant is a cat who was renamed Ollie. Ollie shares a home with another cat named Khaleesi and, as you can see in the second photo, the two are inseparable, always grooming each other and just playing or snoozing. As you can see, Ollie played the “Game of (New) Homes” as well as his cat-pal Khaleesi! His guardian, Helen, loves him, as he “fits right into the family.”

Yet another family adopted a yellow Lab named Boomer (third photo). They report that they “love having him, and adopting him was easily one of the best moments of 2017! We are thankful to the Humane Society and Purina for having the event. He has become part of the family so easily. Thank you guys for giving our family the perfect addition” in Boomer. That’s a bada-boom-bada-bing, slam-dunk adoption for Boomer!

We are happy to report that six pets were adopted thanks to Purina and the Petfinder Foundation’s caring, and this is a small sampling of those pets and their families. Thank you, PFF & Purina!
