Adopt-A-Dog Inc.: Perkins Bordetella Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Grant monies were used to purchase vaccines such as Bordetella, materials for injection and other related costs.

All new intakes into the shelter that qualified (both non-vaccinated and pets needing boosters) were treated and properly vaccinated.

How many pets did this grant help?

Approximately 60-75 dogs

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Due to proper and routine vaccination at our shelter, kennel cough was prevented. By having the costs of vaccines covered by a grant, funds that would otherwise be dedicated to vaccinating pets can be used for other things, such as building our enrichment program, which helps reduce stresses in the kenneling environment. Also, by having the risk of kennel cough reduced, the related costs to a dog who may have contracted kennel cough have been removed, hence more monies saved for the shelter.
