How many pets did this grant help?


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

Juno was found as a stray and not only as a stray but she was pregnant. She went into the shelter system where we had learned of her. Once her pups were born and reached about 9 weeks she came to our organization where she went into a foster home and each of her pups were also placed into foster homes. Juno and all of her pups were spayed/neutered, dewormed and brought current on all vaccinations prior to being adopted.

Juno was an excellent mother to her pups, she absolutely adored each of them. Juno also proved wonderful with other dogs and even cats! She does great with people of all ages and was a huge hit at adoption events that she attended with us. Juno was lucky enough to find an adoptive home before all of her pups were even adopted! Juno is living happily with her adopter who has now also become a volunteer with our organization.

We are thankful to Orvis and the Petfinder Foundation for making this rescue possible!

Attached is a photo of Juno with her adoptive parent! The other photo is of one of Juno’s pups, Marshmellow, in her foster home.
