Humane Society of Baltimore County: Grant Opportunities from the Petfinder Foundation Grant Report

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

The grant from the PetFinder Foundation was used to support daily operations at the Baltimore Humane Society's no-kill animal shelter. Currently, the shelter is providing temporary shelter, food, medical care, and behavioral training to nearly 150 unwanted, abandoned, abused, and neglected dogs, cats, and other small companion animals.

This grant was used to support the Baltimore Humane Society's mission to find loving forever homes for animals in the shelter's care. This mission is accomplished through adoption events, promotion on the BHS website and services like PetFinder, and publicity through local media outlets.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Lacey was a high energy pit-mix who came to BHS after having to be surrendered by her owner. As a special needs dog –in her case, deaf–finding a true forever home was a difficult proposition, but because of the grant from PetFinder Foundation and the Baltimore Humane Society’s no-kill philosophy, Lacey found her happy ever after! A photo is included of her new family.
