Louisa County Animal Shelter: Sponsor a Pet
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.
The grant helped Mickey find a new family sooner than normal for a senior dog by helping us reduce fees for his adoption.
One. Reduced fees definitely helped Mickey's new owner make the final decision to give him a super-comfy home.
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.
