Animal Rescue Force: Kia Pet Adoption Grant Report

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

We reduced our adoption fees by $100 for dogs and $50 for cats. We adopted out 12 dogs at the reduced fee of $100 each and 16 cats at the reduced fee of $50.

The reduced fees allowed the new adopter to purchase supplies needed for their new pet.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Rose (first photo), a 1-year-old cat, was picked up as a stray. Her adopter wanted a cat to love and spoil and saw Rose. The rest is history. She took Rose to her forever home that day!

Reed (second photo) was a 2-year-old cat who was picked up as a stray. Her adopter looked in her eyes and knew Reed was the cat for her and the adoption was done!

Nori (third photo) was a 2-year-old Chihuahua who was given up because his owner was moving. The adopter fell in love with Nori’s face as soon as she met him. He is now living in a home with another dog to play with.

Luna (fourth photo) and Wednesday, two 4-year-old siblings, were rescued from a yard and adopted together as kittens. Unfortunately, their family’s new baby had severe allergies and both cats were returned after four years. But a potential adopter saw them together and could not bear to separate them and took them home with her immediately!

Daisy (fifth photo) was a 16-year-old dachshund whose owner was bedridden and could no longer care for her. One of our fosters took Daisy into her home and found out she was a friendly, sweet, loving dog. The adopter, who had another senior dog, thought Daisy would fit into her household and took her home right away.

Chico (sixth photo) was a 12-year-old Chihuahua whose owner was moving and surrendered him. Chico’s adopter wanted to take in a senior dog to give him love and care during his senior years.

Charlie Girl (seventh photo), a 6- or 7-year-old cat, was picked up as a stray. Charlie Girl was fostered and was scared of the dogs in the household. She is now living her best life in a home with other felines.

Yardie (eighth photo), a 12-year-old bichon, was picked up as a stray. Yardie had various health issues that were addressed prior to adoption. His adopter fell in love at the first meeting and knew she had to take him to his forever home.
