approximately 200 pets

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

Garth, a lab mix found wandering in the city, was recently adopted by a wonderful local family. Garth loves children. At a Walmart adoption event, Garth was blessed to meet this family and instantly fell in love with them. The little boy in the picture, Brock, talked about Garth all week, until his mom contacted us and Garth was adopted. The vaccine grant helped Garth to be ready for his new home.

Popcorn was found in the middle of a busy highway. He was recently adopted by a loving family with 2 little boys. The vaccine grant helped Popcorn to be ready for his new home.
