All Our Orphans - Friends of Randolph Animal Pound: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

The money was used to offset the cost of special reduced-price adoption to help have more cats and kittens adopted from our shelter.

All of our cats and kittens are vetted, vaccinated, combo-tested and spayed or neutered. We ask for adoption fees to help offset the cost. With this money, we used it to help pay some of the vet bills for the spay/neuter and adopted out cats and kittens at a discounted rate to attract more adopters.

How many pets did this grant help?

Eight cats were adopted are our special event (many were adults who had been in our shelter for a long time).

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

Miss Kitty had been surrendered to our shelter six months ago because her owner lost her home. Miss Kitty became very depressed and stopped eating. She had to be hospitalized. We put Miss Kitty in a foster home and she was adopted on Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014, for $6 Sunday. She is very happy in her new home. Picture No. 1 is when Miss Kitty first came into our shelter. She was depressed and sick. Picture No. 2 is after six months of foster care and adoption!
