Edgewater Animal Shelter: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

We were able to use the money we received towards food, vaccines, and medical care for animals to whom we would otherwise have had to deny admission to our shelter due to lack of funds and inability to provide proper care.

This grant helped us remain open to surrenders which we wouldn't have been in a position, staff and monetary-wise, to take in without the extra funds. It also helped offset the cost of the many stray kittens brought in due to a decrease in TNR programs because of COVID-19.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

We received a cat carrier of black kittens (first photo) that a good Samaritan found dumped along the road. We are able to provide them with much-needed food, vitamins, and healthcare. They aren’t ready for adoption yet.

Poor Jenny dog (second photo) was found loose around town after being bounced from home to home after her owner passed. We were able to bring her in and provide her with vaccines, flea and heartworm medication, and love. Jenny has an approved adopter as well.

We were able to take in a young hound puppy, whom we named Adelaide (third photo), and provide her with much-needed vaccines, cover the cost of her spay when she is big enough, and microchip her. She has an approved adopter.

We were able to take in an elderly dog whom we named Mabel (fourth photo). She was blind and partially deaf. We were able to provide care and find her a medical foster who loves her so much that she is adopting her.
