L.A.S.S.I.: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

We received a grant of $400 that covered the dog's adoption fee and two bags of senior dog food and two bags of Daisiquin joint supplement.

This grant allowed for one of our senior dogs, Elanor, to be adopted! It provided sponsorship of her adoption fee and gave the family joint supplement and senior dog food to take with them to get her on a healthy start to her new future with them.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Elanor, an 8-year-old hound mix, arrived as a stray at the shelter with her sister on March 3. Her sister was adopted out quickly but no one was interested in Elanor. This grant not only allowed sponsorship of food, joint supplement and her adoption fee, but in addition her story was featured on the Susie’s Senior Dogs Facebook page, where it was shared more than 800 times. This publicity reached numerous interested families, and Elanor was adopted today, April 22.
