We were able to to buy food for the animals to keep them fed, keep the utilities on, and purchase flea meds and other meds. Thanks to the grant, we did not have to completely stop all intake.

It helped 60 dogs and 25 cats.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
We were able to help a Petey (first three photos), a young, abandoned puppy who had an eye injury and required an enucleation. Because we were able to give a local vet a deposit to cover supplies and meds up front, she was able to treat him immediately rather than wait for the low-cost vet to be available. Petey has been adopted.
We also were able to take in and foster a deaf English sheepdog found living in a culvert in the middle of nowhere. He was unclaimed and he is currently in foster care receiving heartworm treatment.
