Build A Rescue Kennel, Inc./Safe Haven: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

The Petfinder Foundation Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant was to support a DNA breed test and sponsor Goofy's adoption fee.

Goofy's DNA test revealed that he is 50% pit bull and 50% boxer -- and his boxer side is from AKC champion lines! This allows us to confirm to potential adopters his true mix. In addition, the grant sponsors his adoption fee, which also allows us to showcase our partnership with the Petfinder Foundation! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!

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

Unfortunately Goofy is still available for adoption, but he is still a sweet, people-friendly, goofy boy waiting for that perfect home. Partnering with the Petfinder Foundation has really allowed him and so many of our other dogs to be seen and supported in so many ways! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! From his Petfinder profile: “Goofy is a SWEET 8-year-old, people-loving, happy, bouncy (and strong) boy. He enjoys his people and loves his off-leash runs. Goofy is very eager to please and energetic, so regular exercise is needed. He has come a long way and really could use a home environment to help him take his next steps. He is off-leash trained, loves swimming in a river, enjoys walks with a loose leash and enjoys playing retrieve with you. He would make a great companion for anyone who has a fenced property and would enjoy his company. Goofy is not dog-friendly and would need to be the only dog/pet in the home.” Meet Goofy here.
