MSPCA at Nevins Farm: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The donations received through the Sponsor a Pet program helped support the day-to-day care of the many animals at Nevins Farm. From hamsters to horses, we take in a wide range of animals each year, and our needs are great. The MSPCA at Nevins Farm receives no funding from state or federal government, so we depend on the generosity of animal lovers to support our work.
The grant funds are used for day-to-day needs of animals in our care.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Padre is a wonderful example of an animal helped by this fund. Padre was surrendered in September when his owner could no longer keep him. As a senior cat, and one who was all-black, it was easy for potential adopters to pass him by in our adoption center (he was just one of many cats). Padre also had dental disease and required surgery.
By featuring him on Petfinder, it was easier to highlight him as an individual, making him stand out from others. We were able to tell his story, and found not just one but three remarkable homes that all wanted him to be a part of their family. Just before the holidays, we were able to provide Padre with much-needed dental surgery, and Padre spent the New Year in his forever home.
