Thank you for this grant! Last Day Dog Rescue microchips every dog and cat that comes into our rescue. Microchips costs $7.27 each, and with a $1,000 grant from the Petfinder Foundation and matching funds from donations from individuals, Last Day Dog Rescue can microchip 275 dogs and cats. Microchipping each animal helps to make sure each dog and cat will be returned to its owner if lost. Without microchipping, lost animals may end up in a shelter, which may be already overcrowded.

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

Tonka was returned recently, as the adoptive family now has two small children and Tonka was not dealing well at the home. Tonka was microchipped by our volunteers upon return to the rescue. This is important in case Tonka gets out of the yard at his foster family’s house. Tonka is looking for his new fur-ever home! Meet Tonka here.
