Twin Cities Pet Rescue: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

The Senior Pet Grant was used to promote the adoption of our senior pit-bull mix, Chico. The grant money was used for Chico's adoption fee, one thyroid test, and one year of thyroid medication for his adopters.

This grant helped find Chico his forever home after 313 days in rescue! Promotions highlighting the Petfinder Foundation Senior Pet Grant began when Chico had spent nine months (270 days) in rescue, and this grant was instrumental in helping find Chico his forever home six weeks later!

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Chico, a 12-year-old pit bull mix, had been overlooked for months in rescue, despite his lovable qualities. Upon finding the Senior Pet Grant, TCPR decided that Chico would be an ideal candidate as the beneficiary of this grant, and we were honored to find out that we (and, moreso, Chico) had been chosen as a recipient! With a couple of social-media promotions highlighting the Petfinder Foundation grant and Chico’s 300th day in rescue, Chico’s forever home was found … and after 313 days in rescue, Chico gets to enjoy his retirement in a FOREVER home!
