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

Chance (first photo) accidently found himself in a feral trap in one of our outlying counties. The rescue group that had been trapping in the area contacted us for help. They were looking for a rescue group to take Chance in and find him an awesome new home. After neutering, vaccinating and chipping him, we took Chance to the adoption center at PetSmart. He was at PetSmart for quite some time, maybe because he was black and also a little out of his comfort zone. Before long he was noticed by a customer who actually had adopted a kitty a few years earlier and needed a friend. She fell in love with beautiful Chance and he headed for a great new life!
