Forgotten Animals of Los Angeles: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We are very grateful to have received FVRCP vaccinations valued at $200. This is a vaccine that helps prevent the Rhinotracheitis virus, Calici virus, and Panleukopenia virus.
In addition to helping us keep our rescued animals healthy by vaccinating them against disease, this wonderful grant freed up money we would have had to spend on vaccinations and allowed us to use that money for food and supplies and other medical care for our rescued animals.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
We have several special needs cats with us. Because we are a no-kill rescue organization, any animal that does not get adopted stays with us forever. Our commitment to the animals is lifelong. It is particularly important for our special needs and elderly cats to have their immune systems helped, so that they can stay healthy. Precious Gabriel is our one-eyed cat we rescued off the streets, where he was facing starvation and abuse and death. Gabriel is positive for FIV. Sgt. Pepper is also FIV positive. He was rescued from a tire shop in North Hollywood where he lived for several years without much human contact at all. when he came to us, he was feral, but now he is such a love bug! And he will be safe and loved for the rest of his life…and he’ll be healthy thanks to our wonderful Petfinder grant!
