White County Animal Control: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

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

We vaccinated all cats and kitten coming into the shelter

We are an open admission shelter without funding to vaccinate every cat. Before the grant vaccinations we were only able to adopt the highly most adoptable that we believed we could keep for amount of time to get them adopted. Now are able to vaccinate all and are able to keep them longer. Now rescues are more eager to pull from our shelter knowing they are vaccinated.

How many pets did this grant help?

So far 26 cats and kittens

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

A rescue group came to our shelter and took kitten photo # one and photo # two. The rescue group was saddened by our euthanasia rate on cats and paid the adoption fee on cat photo #3 who went to live with a retired woman and her dog that had just lost their cat. With three openings in our shelter we were able to keep cat photo #4 until she had her kittens and was sent to a foster home.rnThank you!
