SOS Lost Pet Rescue NW: Kia Pet Adoption Grant Report

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

We were able to lower adoption fees for older cats, getting them into homes quicker. We provided extensive medical care for one abandoned cat. $360 was used to lower adoption fees and $140 was used for veterinary dental costs for Venus, an abandoned older cat.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Venus was abandoned by her owner’s family when her human mom passed away.

She was found roaming the streets of McMinnville when a kind lady picked her up. She was scanned and was chipped. The family was shocked when I found them. They asked how I did it; I simply said the chip has info and I always dig deeper when I have a small bit of info.

Her finder/foster has been taking wonderful care of her. We decided that it would be best to let her stay as a long-term/forever foster so she doesn’t have to readjust to a new home.

At 12 years old, she deserves stability and a family that loves her.
