Animal Rescue of the Rockies: Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Spay/neuter of adoptable kittens and cats
Our largest expense is medical care for our animals before they're adopted out. The 2020 Purina Spring into Adoption Grant in the amount of $500 defrayed the cost of basic veterinary care for four cats, including spay/neuter, worming, microchipping, rabies vaccine, FVRCP vaccine, FeLV/FIV test and a health certificate, at an approximate cost of $144/animal.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Fang is a handsome white-and-buff tabby who came to us from another rescue that couldn’t keep him any longer. He was going to be euthanized and they reached out to us to take him. He is a very friendly and outgoing cat. We gave him our basic veterinary care, including a neuter, worming, microchipping, rabies vaccine, FVRCP vaccine, FeLV/FIV test and a health certificate. He was quickly adopted by a loving family that was looking for a new cat during the Covid pandemic. He’s become an integral part of their household.
