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

We want to thank the Petfinder Foundation for supporting our senior Maggie with a grant to cover all of her heartworm treatment AND her adoption fee. Maggie was part of our hurricane-relief efforts and traveled a long way to find her safe place with us. She and other homeless pets were pulled from Texas shelters in order to make room for dogs stuck in the destruction and devastation left behind from Hurricane Harvey. Maggie was under-socialized and heartworm-positive upon her intake in September 2017. Since then, she has undergone treatment for her condition and has been living with one of our loving fosters while she waited for the right family to adopt her. The Petfinder Foundation saw her potential and granted her the chance at a new life. She had a rough start, but she got the love and care she deserved thanks to the support of the Petfinder Foundation. She has been adopted.
