Dolly's Legacy Animal Rescue: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

The money we received as a 2019 Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant for Mouse was used for her adoption fee and medication.

The grant helped one specific senior dog find her forever home! Mouse was a senior pug who suffered from arthritis and was partially blind so required assistance with stairs. She loved to eat and wander around the back yard. It was going to take the right kind of person to give Mouse the care she needed in her final years.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Mouse was adopted out to a loving lady after the grant was issued last fall. Her mom told us in January 2020 that Mouse had crossed the rainbow bridge and shared this sweet message: “This sweet girl and I had a Divine appointment. I knew when Mouse came to me that it was to give her a little space of love, peace, and rest after a tough life of abandonment and neglect. She was scared, blind, deaf, and slow-moving. Last night, I wrapped her in a blanket, rocked her, and affirmed to her the belovedness she hadn’t always experienced. A little after midnight, she crossed into what I hope is a place where she is whole and she is love. Vaya con Dios, my sweet pug dog. I already miss your waddle, your ‘hold me’ yelp, your utter delight in peanut butter. Thank you for all the lessons in love and compassion you’ve given me.”
