Multiple Breed Rescue: Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The money was used to reduce the adoption fees for two older (11-year-old) female Labradors. The girls were brought in together and had lived their entire lives outside. They were not socialized, nor had they received vet care. They had a lot of needs and adopting them out was difficult. The grant monies helped us lower the fee for each.
The grant money allowed us to lower the fee on two elderly Labrador sisters to successfully place them in loving homes.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Lacey and Chelsea were 11-year-old Labrador retrievers who had spent their entire lives living outside. Their owner was elderly and no longer able to care for them. They were surrendered to a shelter in Southern Ohio, which contacted us and we transported them up to Grafton. These girl were frightened beyond imagination and so very dependent on each other for support. We had a vet come to the farm to examine them as we feared the stress would be too much. Eventually we had them placed in separate foster homes and started working on socialization. Within weeks the girls started to adjust. Both have been adopted.
