White County Animal Shelter: Petfinder Adoption Options in Action Grant (Invitation Only)
What was the money or product used for?

We have used $490 of the $1,000 grant solely for the spay/neuter of adopted dogs.

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

This grant has helped us get several dogs adopted and ensure that they were spayed/neutered before going home with their new families. It helped increase the adoption rate as it was an additional cost that the family did not have to cover to take their new family member home.

How many pets did this grant help?

So far we have spayed/neutered six dogs for their new families. We still have just over half the grant remaining and plan to use it for adopters to get their new family members spayed/neutered before taking them home.

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

A sweet dog who was found in the middle of the road by our shelter found her new family. A local resident saw her profile and knew she would be the perfect addition for her parents. Her parents had loved a senior Aussie her whole life, and when the family saw Taci, they knew it was meant to be. The parents lived out of state and the grant allowed us to save the family the cost of the spay surgery so they could arrange transportation and buy her all the comforts and prepare her new home.
