Terre Haute Humane Society: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

We bought cleaning supplies, including animal-shelter disinfectant, squeegees, sponges, replacement parts for our foamers, and spray bottles. We also bought food for our senior dogs and for animals with special diet requirements.

This grant helped us buy essential supplies during the global pandemic, a time when our income was significantly reduced. We were able to purchase cleaning supplies that we desperately needed to sterilize all of the kennels, cages, surgical and recovery rooms, and common areas in our facilities. It also helped us feed our dogs and cats with special dietary needs.

How many pets did this grant help?

1,800

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

Dozer, a boxer mix (first photo), was adopted today after spending the past 15 months at our shelter.

Scout, an older Chow mix with a birth defect on his front paw (second photo), was also one of the first animals adopted from our shelter after statewide pandemic restrictions were lifted.

It is kitten season and we have received more than 45 kittens, most of them orphaned. Baloo (third photo) and his three littermates have all found their forever homes.

This grant helped Scout, Dozer, Baloo, and all of our animals (present and future) by providing cleaning supplies that are used to sterilize kennels, cages, surgical and recovery rooms, and other common spaces, keeping our animals safe and healthy while they waited to be adopted.
