Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Sophie (first photo) was in a box at Walmart and was being given away as a 7-week-old puppy. Two teenage girls took the puppy home and the mother said no. The puppy was passed on to someone else who knew of our rescue. She gave us the puppy. Someone adopted Sophie and kept her for four or five months when the landlord went to do a repair and did not allow animals. She had to get rid of the puppy. Due to the clause in our contract, the lady returned the puppy to us and filled out our surrender forms. The puppy was eventually adopted.
Hank (second photo) was being given away for free on Facebook. We contacted the owner and they agreed to surrender their dog. When dogs are given away, you never know who is going to get them and what plans they have for the dog.
