Rescue One: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

The funds were used to sponsor Roxanne and Lando, two senior boxers who were bonded.

This organization helped us get Roxanne and Lando adopted. These were two difficult-to-adopt dogs because of their size and their age (and the fact that they were bonded), but the sponsorship allowed their adopter to not have to worry about paying the adoption fee as well as for the monthly preventatives and food for two large dogs.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Roxanne and Lando were surrendered due to a couple splitting up. They had lived with the couple their entire lives. From their Petfinder profile: “Have you ever met someone you couldn’t live without? Someone who completes you? Your right-hand (or -paw) man? Hi, I’m Roxanne and this is Lando. We are 7½-year-old boxers. We are both laid-back and as sweet as can be. We love attention and will follow you around the house. Lando and I are both house-trained. I will go in the crate no problem, but he has to be a drama queen about going in his. Our foster has tested us with other dogs and cats. We passed with gold stars! We have not been kid-tested, but can be if you have little humans around. Our ideal home would be with someone who will give us love and lots of attention. We are kind of big babies. We can’t wait to become part of your family and shower you with love!”
