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

Elway found his forever home. He was a 2-year-old great Pyreense mix who had been at the shelter for about six months. He was the sweetest boy ever: great with young kids, loved other animals, and playful but not overly energetic. We could not believe he hadn’t been adopted, since he was just a calm, quiet, loving dog — and a shelter favorite!

He finally found his forever home and is living a fabulous life! He gets to live with four dachshunds, two young boys, and a mom and dad who take him along to any dog-friendly place they visit.

He is the perfect dog for the family and the family has the perfect home for Elway. He really could not have found a more suitable home and we are so grateful to Kia and the Petfinder Foundation for helping us unite Elway with his new family.
