York Adopt-A-Pet: Grant Report

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

The money was used for no and reduced adoption fees for dogs and cats in the shelter.

This grant allowed us to increase our adoptions of older and special-needs dogs and cats. It also enabled us to adopt several dogs and cats to people who would not have financially been able to adopt.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Mollie was relinquished when her family divorced and neither could take or wanted her. She is 10 years old and a sweet little girl. At her vet visit, it was determined that she had severe dental disease, but all other tests showed she was in good health. The poor girl had 17 teeth extracted but was like a new dog when she came back. She had to have been in so much pain, and now she was pain-free and acting like a puppy. Even though she was a darling little girl, we knew because of her age it would be harder to find a home for her, so because of this grant, we were able to adopt her with no adoption fee for the right home. Shortly after her dental, the perfect home was found and we have heard from her family saying she is doing well and they thanked us for choosing them to be her new family.
