Capital Area Humane Society: Grant Report

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

The funds were used to provide medical treatment and spay/neuter to numerous dogs and puppies that we cared for and adopted out in September 2013.

Each dog that is placed up for adoption at our shelter is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed, and given flea preventative. Your donation ensured that we were able to help these dogs to be healthy and adopted into loving homes.

How many pets did this grant help?

Multiple (final number pending)

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

One such dog that was spayed and vaccinated because of your grant was Laverne (now named Bailey). Bailey was a 5-month-old Shepherd mix. Bailey (and her sister Shirley) came to us from a shelter in Arkansas via PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin. She was not spayed. Due to the generosity of the Pedigree Foundation and the Petfinder Foundation, we were able to spay her and complete her series of vaccines. She was adopted into a loving home within a few days of arriving at our shelter. Attached you will find a photo of Bailey being adorable.
