Save Our Cats and Kittens: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

Surgery to reattach a prolapsed rectum in a small kitten, post-operative care, and special high-calorie food.

The $500 grant made it possible to get specialized veterinary care without depleting our regular funds. Athena regained her health and was adopted by a family. We are able to share this happy story with our supporters, which is always a good thing.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

A kitten named Athena in a litter of sickly orphans developed a prolapsed rectum. We do not have a veterinarian on-site and we use local cooperating vets for cases like this. After the surgery to reattach the rectum, she lost a lot of weight and needed constant care for several weeks while she recovered. Her foster parent monitored her food intake and litter-box habits to make sure everything went well. The surgery costs and related care were covered by this grant. Athena was adopted to a happy family.
