To offset the cost of adoption fees for dogs 6 months and older to move them into homes quickly and more efficiently.

This grant assisted us in finding homes for dogs 6 months and older much quicker, as we were able to run adoption specials that provided reduced adoption fees to families interested in adopting dogs. It assisted the organization in recouping the lost revenue from these discounted fees.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Brutus was a 1-year-old Am Staff mix who was a picture-perfect example of a “pit bull”-type breed. He had some issues with leash reactivity, which his foster was working on for a while. The foster already had a few dogs and was determined to find Brutus a home despite his rambunctious behavior. However, with one of the adoption specials that was provided, the foster was finally able to find a home for Brutus: the home he’d been in all along!! The low-cost adoption fee allowed the foster to decide that it was the right time to keep Brutus for good, and he joined a family of three other dogs where he is now happy, healthy, and loved.
