Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana: Grant Report

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

We reduced/eliminated adoption fees for active-duty military adopters.

We are located near a military base and we often have military adopters. These are hardworking young men and women who often do not make a lot of money and make a huge sacrifice for our country. Many had family pets that they dearly miss and want pets of their own. Thanks to your grant, we made this happen!

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Wrigley came into our care in February 2020. This poor pup was in terrible shape: deaf, blind in one eye, heartworm-positive, and with such a severe flea infestation that he lost some of his fur permanently. The one eye in which he still had vision was getting worse. Still, he was the most loving pup you could imagine. He completed heartworm treatment, was neutered, had one eye removed, and got his ear infections cleared up. We also fattened him up. He is now thriving with his forever family.
