We used the grant funding to purchase dog food, cat food, cat litter, and shelter cleaning supplies. Our breakdown of funds used is as follows:
Dog food: $430
Cat food: $275
Cat litter: $210
“Rescue” disinfectant: $165
Total expenses: $1080
This grant helped ensure that our shelter animals would continue to have an ample food supply during the COVID-19 crisis. It also helped us maintain our extensive sanitation protocols by contributing to the cost of Rescue brand disinfectant.
This grant specifically helped with two litters of shepherd-mix puppies. We were able to purchase puppy food for this litter. Our donors do not normally think about bringing in puppy food. We most often get donations of adult dog food. This grant helped ensure that we could provide good-quality nutrition for our puppies. It also helped ensure that we were able to maintain our high quality of sanitation standards, with the ability to purchase Rescue disinfectant. This purchase was beneficial to all of the animals in our care.
