Save-A-Pet: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

The grant funds were used to waive MJ's $150 adoption fee and were earmarked to provide two years of vet exams and medication for MJ. Sadly, MJ had a heart attack two months after being adopted. The grants funds were used to cover the $993.75 fees at the emergency vet.

The grant allowed us to waive MJ's adoption fee and provide her family with funds for her care.

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

Thanks to the grant from the Petfinder Foundation, MJ was able to finally have a loving home. With her fee waived, she was adopted within one week of Save-A-Pet receiving the grant. She spent two months with her loving family before passing away. Her family reported back to us often during that time and they were overjoyed with having her. As you’ll see from the attached pictures, MJ was so happy to be with them. We wish they all could have had longer together, but we are so grateful that the Petfinder Foundation helped MJ’s last days be happy.
