York Adopt-A-Pet: Grant Report

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

The money was used for waived and reduced adoption fees for dogs and cats in the shelter.

Because of this grant, we were able 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.

Cinnamon and Lambie are both Chihuahuas who came to us from a puppy mill breeder who was retiring. They were very bonded, so we were determined to adopt them together so they could spend the rest of their lives together in the comfort of a loving home. The perfect person visited the shelter and instantly fell in love with these two. She was eager to adopt both, but did not feel she could afford the adoption fee. These little girls had come to us needing extensive medical care (spays, dentals, testing and vaccinations), so because of this grant we were able to adopt both dogs to her. A happy ending for everyone.
