Second Chance Humane Society: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used the Petfinder Foundation grant funds to care for 10 kittens who came in motherless and homeless during the pandemic. This year’s kitten intake has been much higher since spay and neuter surgeries were on hold in Colorado due to a lack of personal protective equipment.
We were able to cover the kittens’ vaccines, dewormer, antibiotics, and food. Since we had to cancel our biggest fundraiser of the year due to the pandemic, every grant and donation has been more important than ever.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
The kittens came in with coccidiosis, an intestinal-tract infection caused by a one-celled organism called coccidia. It can cause diarrhea. The kittens also had terrible upper-respiratory infections, but we were able to isolate them and treat them with the funds from this grant.
Three of the kittens have been adopted, and three are left: Butch Catsidy, Bradd Kitt, and Cat Damon. You can meet all three of them here.
