Advocates for Abused and Abandoned Pets (A3P): Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Thanks to this generous grant, we were able to purchase some really nice things for sweet seniors Foxy and Daisy, including orthopedic beds, easy-step pet stairs, a nail dremel, high-quality dry and wet food, new collars and leashes, and flea and tick preventative, with remaining funds to cover their rabies vaccines and reduced adoption fee.
The orthopedic beds and stairs are especially helpful, since both Foxy and Daisy are 13 years old! The beds that we typically get donated do not provide the orthopedic support needed for their old bones, and the stairs will prevent potential injury from them jumping off the furniture. The ones we were able to purchase are wide and sturdy and the pups use them constantly.
While we get donations of dry and canned food, often it's of lesser nutritional value and packed with fillers verses needed vitamins and minerals. The food we were able to purchase with this grant is Foxy- and Daisy-approved! They totally clean their bowls now. While we do provide flea and tick preventatives to our adoptable babies, they are expensive, so being able to purchase some through this grant is a huge savings for us!
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Foxy and Daisy were transferred to us together after they were found in the home where their owner had passed some time prior to their rescue. They were sick, confused, and in need of medical attention — how could we say no to these innocent babies when the shelter called? We knew these two would have to be fostered and adopted together. It took a while to get them healthy, but they have an amazing, albeit humble, foster mom, who is now adopting them — yay! They will live out their lives with stability, warm, comfortable beds, and full bellies. Petfinder Foundation, thank you!
