Lawrence Humane Society: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
This donation sponsored the adoption fee of a dog in our care named Ivy. Ivy's adoption sponsorship meant that someone who may have overlooked her before may have taken special notice of her since her adoption fee was waived.
This grant helped Ivy get adopted by taking away the financial barrier to adoption that many face. This sponsorship helped her get adopted, which not only meant that Ivy got a good home, but that her length of stay was shorter and thus we could help more animals like her.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Ivy was brought into the Lawrence Humane Society by transfer from another facility in central Kansas. When she arrived, she was a bit rough around the edges and definitely needed a bath. Once we got her cleaned up, we learned that she loved to play with other dogs and get affection from people. She was later adopted by a loving family with plenty of land for her to run around.
