Louisa County Animal Shelter: Sponsor a Pet
What was the money or product used for?

Sandy's adopter was able to pay the full fee to adopt her new baby. The donation was used to help pay for the neuter for a senior dog, Mickey. Mickey was in the shelter at the same time as Sandy the puppy.

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

The grant helped Mickey find a new family sooner than normal for a senior dog by helping us reduce fees for his adoption.

How many pets did this grant help?

One. Reduced fees definitely helped Mickey's new owner make the final decision to give him a super-comfy home.

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

Sandy (first photo) was found in a busy intersection at a stop light. She was just four months old. Her finder was also her adopter, after her stray hold. Mickey (second photo) was a senior beagle who came in as a stray around the same time that Sandy was found. We get a lot of hound-type dogs here and they take much longer to place than other types of dogs. Mickey moved quickly through the system thanks to the grant helping us reduce his fees.
