How many pets did this grant help?


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

Pittany Spears was a Brittany spaniel/pit bull mix Milo had rescued from a high[-intake] shelter in the summer of 2018. Pittany is a beautiful girl with the body and head of a pit bull and a spaniel’s coat. She is a wonderful girl, but her look is intimidating to many people, and she was also selective with the people she would warm up to, as she really chose her people. After months in the shelter, we were able to use the grant funds to supplement her adoption fee, and she was able to find a home with a wonderful young couple in Novato. She’s living there happily now with their two cats and a big backyard of her own!
