Purr Nation Cat Alliance: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The $500 grant received from the Petfinder Foundation is much appreciated! We used the funds to assist in medical expenses as we ramped up our virtual adoptions in the era of COVID-19.
With the assistance of the Petfinder Foundation and other funding sources, we've seen our virtual adoptions skyrocket in recent months! We've been able to rescue more cats and kittens from our local shelters than in any previous year and even assisted in emergency relief work in Louisiana for animals affected by Hurricane Laura. We are also completing significantly more adoptions than we have in the past since pivoting to virtual adoptions during the pandemic. Thank you for your continued support!

Purr Nation rescued Avocado and Coconut from a local animal shelter. They were only 3-4 weeks old, orphaned, and not able to eat on their own yet. Purr Nation’s medical fosters stepped in to assist these two precious babies in learning to eat on their own and managed some health issues they had (likely from being in the shelter environment).
Within a few weeks, Avocado and Coconut were well on their way to being healthy, adoptable kittens. Sure enough, their foster mom’s online posts about these two cuties sparked the interest of a wonderful potential adopter, and once they were spayed and neutered, they found a loving home with their new cat dad, James! Now known as Truffle and Noodle, respectively, these two have found their “purr-ever” home thanks to the help of the Petfinder Foundation and Purr Nation Cat Alliance!
