The money was used to waive the adoption fee and provide the necessary vaccinations and senior food for Ragtime, a senior pet who had been at the shelter most of her life.
Having this grant for Ragtime provided her adopters with the medical and financial ease of adopting a senior cat. It also provided her adopters with the startup items necessary when adopting for the first time.
After being in the shelter 12 out of her 13 years of life, Ragtime, along with another senior cat, was adopted! Both Ragtime and Gracie were adopted by a couple who hadn’t realized how difficult it was to place senior cats. When they heard about the difficulty of adopting out senior cats and Ragtime’s story, they said it sealed the deal!
