Remembering Ruthie Rescue, Inc.: Rescue U Renovation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The money was mostly used to re-tile our puppy room, purchase kennels, and to build a quarantine kennel area for new incoming dogs, which also doubles as a sick bay for dogs recovering from heartworm treatment.
It helped tremendously by giving us the extra space to house dogs outside more safely, and with the sick bay being able to be built and modified for use in many different ways to ensure all dogs are healthy without the risk of spreading anything to the other dogs.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Jack (first photo) was one of our heartworm-positive dogs who benefited from the sick bay. Since we didn’t have a foster to step up for him, he was housed there while he recuperated. Several dogs have been placed in it until they recovered from kennel cough and could be put in a foster home or with the general population. Thank you, Petfinder Foundation, for the grant to help us help the needy shelter dogs.
