How many pets did this grant help?


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

UAAC rescued a very pregnant female Pit Bull from an abusive situation. Our ability to take on a pregnant animal, rehabilitate her, and find homes for her puppies is greatly impacted by the funding we received from Petfinder. This female and her pups, when they come of age, will be vaccinated, spayed/neutered and micro-chipped before being adopted. Petfinder’s grant insures our ability to vaccinate these and about 100 other dogs before they enter into the community.
