Greenville Humane Society: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

An adult dog's adoption fee

It helped to move an adult dog to his home, opening up space for another dog in the shelter to be on the adoption floor.

How many pets did this grant help?

Directly, one. Indirectly, all those waiting to fill his spot on the adoption floor.

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

Drummond, an adult dog, had been with us for a while, as adult dogs are harder to place in homes than puppies. Because of this grant, we were able to break down one barrier (money) between Drummond and his family and increase his chances of getting adopted. Not only was Drummond moved out quicker, but other dogs that were waiting to fill his spot on the adoption floor were moved up quicker, decreasing their total time in the shelter.
