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

Rev the kitten was rushed to the shelter by a Good Samaritan during one of the agency’s rabies clinics. Rev was found in a car engine and was severely injured. His tail had been severed and he had two broken legs. Despite his injuries, he was very friendly. He was rushed to the vet. His tail was amputated and both legs were cast. One of the staff members at the veterinary clinic offered to foster Rev during his recovery. Instead of having to recuperate in the shelter, Rev was able to heal in the peace of a loving home. Rev’s foster family fell in love with him and became his forever family through adoption. Thank you to the Petfinder Foundation for making this possible.
