Humane Society of Tampa Bay: Bar Dog Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The grant was used to purchase 200 microchips for shelter animals.
This grant helped us to provide microchips to 200 pets for putting them up for adoption. In Florida especially, we see an increase in the number of pets escaping in the summer months. This is because they will get frightened by the thunderstorms and/or fireworks. Microchips are essential to helping reunite pets with their loving owners.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
This grant helped Beau, a 2-year-old beagle mix who was found wandering the streets by a good Samaritan. He was brought into our shelter, where we provided appropriate medical care and vaccinations, as well as a microchip. Beau has been adopted, but should he ever escape his new family’s home, he can be quickly reunited because of his microchip thanks to the Petfinder Foundation.
