Alleghany Humane Society: Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Reduced-fee adoptions for cats and dogs

This grant opened up more opportunities for placement of homeless pets by reducing adoption fees. Due to COVID-19, folks in our community have experienced decreased income. Reduced fees make it easier for adopters to open their hearts and homes to our cats and dogs.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

These grant funds helped Friendly, a redbone hound mix. Friendly was transferred to the Alleghany Humane Society from the Monroe County Animal League. She had been found as a stray. Monroe County, West Virginia, does not have a shelter, so we helped them out by taking in Friendly. The Alleghany Humane Society managed all of Friendly’s medical care, including her spay, and she was quickly adopted into a loving home thanks to the reduced-fee adoption that was funded by this grant.
