United for Animals Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used it to pay our CareCredit card bill. This card is only used for vet bills.
We almost cried when we got approved. Our vet bills are really high and we had a lot of emergencies in the past few months.
How many pets did this grant help?
Over 150 cats that we have in our facility
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Here is Vitorio. He is around 1 year old. A volunteer called us to set up a trap by her house and he got trapped by May 19. He was rescued with this horrible skin condition! The vet believed it was probably caused by a fight and got infected through scratching. He was treated with several injections, antibiotics, and ointments for two months inside our facility. He is a very sweet boy and is fully recovered and ready for his forever home. Vitorio is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and negative for FVI/FeLV. You can meet Vitorio here.
Because of COVID-19, our donations went down and our bills went really high. We had a crazy kitten season and a lot of vet visits. With this grant, we were able to catch a little break on our bills. As of today, July 24, 2020, we were able to find homes for 227 animals and Petfinder has been a great tool of help.
