Belleville Area Humane Society: COVID-19 Operation Grant

What was the money or product used for?

This grant was used for the intake of 22 kittens during the week of May 22. Intake includes all vaccines, a microchip, dewormer, and an FIV/FeLV combo test.

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

Our intake has been up during this COVID-19 crisis due to an increase in surrenders. The week of May 22, we brought 37 animals into the shelter, which is three times our average weekly intake. The grant money paid for the intake of the 22 kittens that we brought in that week. We would not have been able to intake as many animals without these funds.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

These kittens have not been adopted yet, but will be available soon. They are all in foster homes and doing well. They are not on Petfinder yet, because they are not available for adoption yet, but I am including some pictures below. The pictures are of Pawdry Hepburn, Vivian, Neville, Hermione, Albus, Ronald, Dobby, and Minerva.
