Grassroots Animal Rescue of Mississippi: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used this grant to offer an adoption incentive for Adele, a 10-year-old deaf cocker spaniel mix in our care. In order to stay healthy, Adele needs daily skin supplements and ear wash. Her skin supplement (Zesty Paws Omega Bites) come in a 90-count container, which last 45 days at her dose of two chewable supplements per day. The cost of the 90-count supplement is $25.97. The two-year cost of this supplement is $441.49. Her ear wash (Ultra-Otic Advanced Ear Cleaner plus Aloe) is $17 per bottle, and one bottle lasts about three weeks. The two-year cost of her ear wash would be $589, bringing the total cost of Adele's supplies for two years to $1,030.49. With the Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant of $1,000, we were able to send two years of supplies with Adele to her new forever home (our rescue funded the remaining costs not covered by the grant). We are happy to report that Adele has been adopted!

We used this grant to offer an adoption incentive for Adele, a 10-year-old deaf cocker spaniel mix in our care. In order to stay healthy, Adele needs daily skin supplements and daily ear wash. Offering two years of Adele’s supplies as an incentive helped to relieve some of the financial pressure of adopting Adele for her new owner. We are happy to report that Adele has been adopted and is thriving in her new home in Alabama! She has a great mom and another senior dog with whom she has bonded well! This home was a perfect match for Adele, made possible in part by the generosity of the Petfinder Foundation. Thank you!
