All For The Critters, Inc.: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We purchased both Panacur Granules and Rescue Sanitizing Wipes with the awarded $250 Covid-19 Grant! The Panacur Granules are treating internal parasites in pets that will be placed for adoption, like our Teddy. Rescue Sanitizing Wipes are used for any and all surfaces to keep everything sanitized and safe for all.
The Covid-19 grant has allowed us to treat all of our pets awaiting adoption with lifesaving treatment of internal parasites so they can be healthy and happy going forward into their new lives. The pets truly need to be healthy before being adopted so that they have the best chance at finding their forever homes quickly and safely.
If left untreated, not only the newly adopted pet, but the pets in the home already and neighboring pets could all contract the same internal parasites that the adopted pet has brought with him/her, making them unhealthy, puny and very unhappy.
The Rescue Sanitizing Wipes have kept the staff healthy so we can continue our mission of rescuing pets in desperate need of care.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Teddy came to us from an animal-control facility. He was matted tightly to the skin and the smell was horrendous! His skin and coat were patchy and unhealthy and he was lethargic. We brought him to our facility, immediately grooming him to remove the urine, feces and fleas from his skin. Next, the testing. He tested positive for hookworms, a very detrimental parasite that will kill if left untreated.
Once he was treated with the first round of Panacur, his eyes started to light up and he started being the real Teddy, not the depressed Teddy we’d only known since he came to us. He was a completely different dog after his second round of treatment three weeks later!
We placed him on our webpage on Petfinder.com and within days he was adopted to a loving home. Success!
With the Rescue Wipes, we were able to have a sanitized area and the staff weren’t carrying any germs, so Teddy’s adoption was carried out in the most timely and healthy way possible.
