Congratulations to ADORE Houston, they are a $500 grant recipient from the 2014 Adopt-a-Pet.com Veterinary Care Fund! We are so moved by the amazing lengths shelters and rescues go to give homeless pets a chance at getting healthy so they can be adopted. Here’s their grant application detailing how this grant will change the life of a pet or pets in their care. Don’t miss the update with more photos at the end too!
Houston, TX 77007
We are a 501c3 organization who is dedicated to providing rescue services, vet care, foster care, abuse cases, and most importantly, adoptive placement to all stray and abandoned animals. We help many dogs find wonderful homes and in our program we have about 100 dogs, we are currently helping. As you can imagine, this is a lot of dogs and becomes very costly as we are short on volunteers. Any grant that we could be honored with, would go to the vet care of our dogs. I will attach the information and pictures of the dogs that you can help us continue to provide care for, if we are approved for a grant. Thank you for considering ADORE Houston for this gracious opportunity.
Hi my name is Maggie and I am a 1 yr. old German shepherd. I was rescued form a landfill where I was living amongst the trash. No one knows how long I had been living there but it was most likely that I had been dumped there because of my skin issues. I have horrible sarcoptic mange and secondary bacterial infections in my skin. I am a sweet girl who needs weekly baths to help get my skin back to normal.
Hi my name is Lily and a client found me in woods with a dead litter, and one dying pup. I was likely dumped as I patiently waited for my owners to return for me, but they never did. The vets did everything they could but my last puppy did not survive. I have a multitude of issues including; a horrible case of sarcoptic mange, flea anemia, and worms but I am so weak I have to stay in intensive care at the vet, only receiving my vaccinations and deworming. They hope I don’t need a blood transfusion but they are not sure yet. I will also need to have weekly baths to help my skin and fur return.

I wanted to send you some updated pictures of Maggie and Jolie, the two dogs we shared with you. Maggie is actually being adopted and Jolie has a wonderful foster who is working diligently to get Jolie in perfect health. I am attaching the updated pictures of how Maggie and Jolie look now because the difference is remarkable! Thank you for your time.
