Vegas Pet Rescue Project: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

This grant covered Peanut's and Tinkerbell's adoption fees, as well as some supplies for their adopter!

This grant helped immensely in getting Peanut and Tinkerbell adopted; they were a bonded pair, uneasy around other dogs except each other, and one of them was a senior. They were always overlooked at our adoption events except for when people assumed they could be split up. These sweet girls were previously adopted, but unfortunately their adopters were allergic and they had to be returned.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Peanut and Tinkerbell came to us as bonded sisters when Covid-19 first hit and their owner could no longer afford their care. They were in foster care with our amazing volunteer Ashley for several months with zero applications for their adoption. Peanut was a senior gal, and they required a specific family for their cute quirks.

Their foster mom Ashley became very attached to them after caring for them so long and mentioned that maybe they were just meant to stay with her; that is when we broke the amazing news that the Petfinder Foundation had approved us for an adoption-assistance grant that would cover their adoption fees and some supplies.

That was Ashley’s deciding factor in officially adopting these sweet sisters! She was scheduled for a vacation back home on the East Coast, and the extra supply money from this grant went to getting Peanut and Tink airline-approved carrying cases so that they could go on vacation with their official new mom!
