LARAS House (Limestone Animal Rescue and Adoption Shelter): Grant Report

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

Of the $2,000 original grant to LARAS House, we have so far been able to reduce the adoption fees of 21 cats and eight dogs by $40 each, coming to $1,160 towards the get-ready fees for those pets adopted. This has truly been amazing! We are so excited that so many cats over 1 year old have been adopted -- so often, they languish at the shelter since so many adopters want kittens.

This grant has allowed us to encourage and subsidize the adoption of often-overlooked pets. It helped us care for even more animals since the costs associated with these pets have been subsidized.

How many pets did this grant help?

29 pets were adopted with this grant (21 cats and eight dogs) in the first two months of implementation.

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

There were so many great stories involved with the pets adopted thanks to this grant. The one that may have been most special was the adoption of Army (who had been at the shelter for over a year) and Tiger. They are sweet cats whom we loved and we were so excited that they could be adopted together (first photo). Another story was Dutchess (second photo), a special kitty who needed extra love — and this grant help make it happen! Thank you so much!
