Humane Society of McCormick County: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The donor contacted us and wanted to sponsor Demi's adoption fee.
Demi was just 5 weeks old last April when she was picked up with severe upper-respiratory and eye infections. She healed, but ended up with a somewhat weepy eye. She was a very loving kitty, but her looks turned some people off. Demi's adoption fee was sponsored in February and she was adopted less than two months later by an engaged couple living in an apartment. She had been with us a whole year, so the sponsorship definitely helped her get adopted. Her new parents have been sending pictures and report that she is doing great in her new home and they may come back to adopt another cat.

Demi was just 5 weeks old last April when she was picked up with severe upper-respiratory and eye infections. She healed, but ended up with a somewhat weepy eye. She was a very loving kitty, but her looks turned some people off. In February, a kind woman from Pennsylvania found her on the website. She wasn’t interested in adopting, but Demi’s story spoke to her and she sponsored her adoption fee. We made up a sign that said her adoption fee was sponsored and used it at adoption events. And then a kind woman came to the shelter this week to see our cats. She spent time with many of them and Demi was her pick. She was surprised and happy that Demi’s adoption fee was sponsored because then she could give a donation in the future to help another kitty get adopted. She has already reported that Demi is settling in well. She was adopted a year after she was picked up.
