Wendy was relinquished to the shelter after her owner passed away. Because she was 12 years old, many people passed her over, until one day a very nice older lady on a fixed income came in and met her and fell in love. AHS was able to waive the adoption donation as part of a senior-to-senior program to make the adoption a reality!

Here is a list of 12 pets who were able to be adopted with the help of the grant, with detailed information about each pet’s original adoption donation and their discounts:

Wendy (first photo)- $300 of $300 was waived to help a senior on a fixed income adopt a senior pet.
Slick- $175 of $350 was discounted to allow a struggling military family to adopt.
Willy (second photo)- $300 of $300 was waived to help a low-income family adopt a senior pet.
Malibu and Cubby- $400 of $400 was waived to allow this bonded pair of dogs to be adopted together. The family would have otherwise been unable to adopt them both due to funds.
Macy- $112.50 of $450 was discounted for a low-income family to adopt a puppy.
Opal (third photo)- $75 of $75 waived to allow a low-income senior to adopt a cat.
Prince (fourth photo)- $112.50 of $450 was discounted for a struggling family to adopt a puppy.
Caroline- $300 of $300 was waived so that her foster could officially adopt her and make her a part of the family forever!
Rainy- $112.50 of $450 was discounted for a low-income family to adopt a puppy.
Weston (fifth photo)- $100 of $400 discounted for a disabled veteran.

This grant helped out a puppy named Ace. Ace was set to be euthanized with the rest of his litter, but we rescued them to be adopted instead. We neuter and spay each of our animals before they go home with an adopter to ensure we are helping to be responsible advocates of not encouraging unexpected puppies. Ace was adopted and went home with a nice little family.
