Tyson's Place Animal Rescue: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

The Sponsor a Pet grant was used for the care of Agnes, a 20-year-old cat who was in our rescue.

Our rescue specifically assists terminally ill people with finding new families for their pets. Agnes's owner had severe health conditions that meant long-term hospitalization. We picked up Agnes from her home and brought her into our rescue. Because of our specialized mission, we often take in senior animals, but at the age of 20, Agnes was one of our oldest animals ever.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Agnes came into our rescue at the age of 20 as her owner was too ill to continue to care for her. Although Agnes was spayed, she hadn’t received regular veterinary care, so we did full blood work, a fecal and urine check, and vaccinations, along with a microchip. This grant helped cover her veterinary care. Agnes is remarkably healthy for her age and after another appointment for a booster vaccination, she was ready for adoption. A woman with a love for senior cats saw her posted on Petfinder, and Agnes was officially adopted a few months ago.
