Circle of Friends Humane Society: Sponsor a Pet
What was the money or product used for?

The donation was used to sponsor the adoption fee of Plum, one of our adoptable cats.

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

It allowed us to increase the chances of finding one of our animals a home. Whenever we get funds intended for sponsored adoption fees, we always aim to sponsor the animals that have characteristics that make it more difficult for them to get adopted, such as behavior, age, or medical issues.

How many pets did this grant help?

One.

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

Plum was a highly affectionate cat who was at Circle of Friends for nearly three months prior to adoption. While she had a fantastic personality, she did not get along with other cats and could not be adopted into a multi-cat household. This characteristic significantly limited her pool of potential adopters. The sponsored adoption fee was used to encourage potential adopters who could meet her needs to take her home. She found her forever home shortly after we applied the sponsorship.
