Peaches Bully Rescue: Grant Report

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

We were able to fully offset the adoption fee for Jolie, a senior bulldog mix dog in need of a furever home. In addition, her family was given a voucher for her Rimadyl, predisone and meloxicam for the entire year.

Penelope's adoption fee was also offset due to the grant. Her medications for long-term care and a breathing surgery for her palate were made possible due to the grant.

Jolie was a senior pet who was going to have ongoing medical expenses that were daunting to most families looking to adopt. This grant allowed Jolie to get a great home and family who made the decision to adopt based on her personality and not on the ongoing medical expenditure.

Penelope received a much better quality of life and a great family who adopted a senior dog with few medical needs other than Rimadyl.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Jolie (first and second photos) lived with one family for all of her 10 years. Life was good for her and she never saw the change coming. Her family got a divorce and suddenly Jolie found herself alone most of the time, being passed around between the two parents and not getting medical attention. Peaches Bully Rescue took pity on this sweet girl and brought her to foster care. There, Jolie received the meds needed for her arthritis and a loving home full of kids and a fur-sister to love her. Jolie was adopted by this family, who couldn’t bear to let her go. Thanks to the Petfinder Foundation grant, Jolie’s family could afford to take on a senior dog whose medications would be paid for by the rescue.

Penelope (third and fourth photos) lived her life as a breeding mom until Peaches Bully Rescue stepped up to take her in. At 9 years old, this petite girl had recently been bred (way past when she should have been) and her puppies died. This left this sweet mama brokenhearted and needing a new purpose in life. Penelope needed an expensive breathing surgery to help her take in air to her lungs, and palate surgery can be quite invasive. After receiving the grant, we were pleased to give her a second shot at a great quality of life. Penelope’s new family was excited to rescue a senior and, with help from the grant, this sweet girl got a new home of her own.
