How many pets did this grant help?


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

One pet who was sponsored was Alfie (pictured). From his Petfinder profile: “Date of birth: May 2012. Alfie is a handsome buff-colored tabby. He’s a friendly and outgoing cat. He gets along well with most other cats. He does have a low stimulation threshold, meaning that he can’t tolerate a lot of petting. It’s a physical reaction some cats have and it becomes uncomfortable for them. He likes to be petted, but you just have to know when he’s had enough. An experienced cat owner will be able to pick up on the signs and would be the best match for Alfie. He wouldn’t be a good choice for someone with kids. Alfie is about 3 years old. He’s been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for FIV and feline leukemia.” Meet Alfie:

Another pet helped was Clifford. Clifford was a stray who had been roaming the streets of Kansas City, KS, and people had been trying to catch him for the longest time. He hadn’t been seen for the longest time and then one day we got a call from a person about a dog lying on the side of the highway. They weren’t sure if the dog had been hit or not. Animal Control went to look for the dog and brought him to us and it just so happened to be Clifford. Clifford had not been hit by a car, but he was exhausted and tired and it seemed as if he had been attacked by another dog. A portion of the money was used to get Clifford his vaccines and to get him started on his veterinary care.
