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

A donor sponsored a special-needs cat we had for adoption who was later adopted by someone who saw her on Petfinder. This grant was used to pay for the spay/neuter of another animal who was able to be saved since she was adopted. The sponsored cat was Misty. From her Petfinder profile: “Hi, I’m Misty! It’s hard being a black cat, as not many people look at us. It’s even worse being a black cat with a food allergy. That’s my dilemma!

“I was abandoned in the freezing winter and trying to stay alive under a shed until I trusted my rescuer. Pictures don’t do me justice, as I am stunning in person! I have shiny, soft, thick black fur with the most gorgeous emerald eyes. I am looking for a quiet home with someone who has a sunny window to sit in and would love to have me sit next to them on the couch stroking the softest fur you will ever touch! I’m a pro at using my scratching post and not furniture. I also have good litterbox manners. I am looking for a special adopter who will feed me my Hill’s Digestive I/d. As long as I am on this food, I am happy and healthy. I am a princess and would love to be your one and only pet. I would love to meet you!”
