York Adopt-A-Pet: Grant Report

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

This grant money was used for a reduced fee for dogs and cats in the shelter.

The grant allowed us to increase our adoptions of harder-to-adopt cats and dogs and enabled us to adopt to people who would not have financially been able to adopt.

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

Tyra was found in a nearby rural community and brought to the safety of our shelter. Tyra was very hungry and had the battle scars of having been on her own for some time. Half of her tail looked like a thin twig, so after she gained some weight and strength, it was decided it would be best if that part of her tail was amputated. A young woman had read Tyra’s story on and instantly fell in love, sight-unseen. Tyra was adopted to her with no fee because we knew she would give her just the right home.
