Pets Alive: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

The donations were used to pay for the heat used to keep Teddy, Dottie and Laura, the sponsored animals, warm during the winter.

Teddy has his very own shed and dog run. Since he's an Alaskan Malamute, he likes the outdoor air in the winter, but his shed is heated. We recently invested in a gas propane tank to heat his shed, which was more efficient than the prior method. As for Dottie and Laura, they are in our cattery and kennel, respectively, and our utility bills are high during the winter months, so this helps greatly!

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Dottie (first photo), a cat who benefited from this grant, has been at our shelter since 2004. Since we are a no-kill facility, we provide sanctuary to animals until they find their forever homes. We never give up on an animal, no matter how long it takes! Dottie came to us as a kitten with her mother and her siblings. While all of her siblings and even her mom got adopted, this shy girl was always overlooked. She is still very shy and doesn’t warm up to humans, but she adores her feline friends. Dottie would doing best in a quiet home with another cat. Her Petfinder page is found here:

Teddy (second photo) is a senior dog. He’s an Alaskan Malamute and while he’s big, he’s a real “mush” and loves human attention! He has to be in a home without other animals, as he doesn’t quite take to other dogs or cats. He loves the outdoors, particularly in the wintertime. His Petfinder page is found here:
