“Stray Hearts is very pleased to ac­cept this grant from Petfinder Foun­da­tion. We’ll be able to ex­pand our play yards for the shel­ter dogs so that they will have more room to run and play each day,” said Donna Karr of Stray Hearts.

The non­profit Petfinder Foun­da­tion as­sists the more than 12,000 an­i­mal shel­ters and res­cue groups that post their adopt­able pets on Petfinder.com.
