St. Francis Society: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

We received $1,000 from the Petfinder Foundation to be used for COVID-19 relief. We purchased $1,000 worth of food and formula to help some of the 500+ kittens our rescue has taken in during this crisis.

This grant was a huge help to St. Francis Society! With it we were able to purchase 18 lbs. of kitten formula, 564 cans of wet kitten food, and 42 lbs. of dry kitten food.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

One of the kittens the Petfinder Foundation helped us provide for is Mayella. Mayella was taken into our rescue with her siblings when she was just one day old! She had a very hard time weaning from formula to kitten food, and after we consulted a specialist, it was decided Mayella would need to continue on formula until she was at least 7 weeks old while her esophagus matured. All of Mayella’s formula has been purchased through the Petfinder Foundation grant.

Mayella is still with us and not yet old enough for adoption.
