Jefferson County Animal Shelter: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

We purchased toys to help alleviate boredom during the Covid-19 shutdown.

This grant provided the shelter the means to purchase interactive toys for dogs and cats both. It provided entertainment and mental stimulation to the animals, both of which were missing in the absence of volunteers and potential adopters. This in turn cuts down on kennel aggression in the dogs.

How many pets did this grant help?

As these toys will last for some time, the pets helped are innumerable.

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

Connor was SO happy with his heavy-duty Kong filled with peanut butter! Connor had wandered away from home and ended up at the shelter. It was a very confusing time for him, but the Kong helped to keep his mind busy until his owner came for him.
