Humane Society of Weld County: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The grant funding was used to support our kittens onsite and in foster care with purchases of KMR, kitten canned food and kitten dry food.
This grant enabled us to further our reach by not having to spend funds to purchase these items from our operational budget.
How many pets did this grant help?
On average, we have had 70+ kittens in foster care since April of 2020.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
On the morning of July 16, staff arrived at the shelter to discover a laundry basket with five 4-week-old kittens left at our front door. Luckily, the kittens were healthy — and vocal! — and we quickly placed them into a wonderful foster home. We were able to send these kittens stocked with supplies due to the generosity of the Petfinder Foundation grant, and the kittens will be returning to the shelter for spay/neuter within the next couple of weeks and will then be made available for adoption. Thank you on behalf of Leonardo, Levi, Logan, Liam and Lionel!
