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

Effie was left outside our shelter during the night of Sept. 19, 2014. We found her the next morning. She was with us until Aug. 1, 2015, when she was adopted due to her sponsorship from the Petfinder Foundation. From her Petfinder profile: “Okay everyone, we need to work on getting Effie adopted. She is such a sweet little cat and no one even notices her. Please share this and tell all your friends and family about her! Effie is a petite little girl about 1 year old. She was a stray and never claimed. She is adjusting to life in the shelter pretty well. She greets customers and staff with a very faint meow and then circles your legs waiting to be petted. Sadly, Effie is overlooked for some unknown reason — she’s so cute with her little black snout! Come in and spend some with her; she would make a great family pet. Now sponsored, she is free with a very approved application :)”
