Friends of the Mustang Animal Shelter: Grant Report

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

First, let me just say thank you! Your recent support of $1,000 means you understand just how important improving the lives of animals at our local shelter and increasing adoptions is to the community. Our small shelter adopted out seven animals just three years ago; in 2015 our organization adopted out over 100 animals from the same shelter. With the help from your grant, we are increasing that number for 2016! A you know, healthy animals are happier animals, resulting in animals that are adopted out of the shelter faster.

We recently had a Young Living essential oils distributer visit the shelter to help us learn about which oils we should purchase and how to use them to help the animals with respiratory health, fear, aggression, and other ailments. As our purchases of oils, Kuranda beds, Kong toys, and cat kennels arrive, we'll be sure to post and send updates so you can see how the Adoption Options grant continues to bring happiness to the dogs and cats in Mustang, OK!

How many pets did this grant help?


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

We had just taken in a very fearful Chihuahua mix stray. We were very excited to have tools on hand to help him feel more comfortable and secure, and even more excited to get our own oils and diffuser purchased for the shelter to help even more animals in need. Pictured is Konner, the scared Chi mix, after we used oils to help calm him.
