Bartholomew County Humane Society: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

The grant award will go directly toward animal care at our shelter!

COVID has allowed us to spend wonderful time with adopters on a one-on-one basis, and working by appointment allows us to give adopters plenty of time to interact with animals here at the shelter. The downside has been the loss of attendance at events to seek donations and hosting actual fundraising events. An award like this one is greatly appreciated so that our organization can continue to treat, fix and shelter needy pets!

How many pets did this grant help?

$500 pays for a pallet of cat litter to last us an entire month!

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

Abigail is one of our long-term adult cat residents. She’s delightful but has been overlooked. She is listed on Petfinder and has recently had two appointments to see her. Through social media posts, as with Petfinder, she has been cross-posted by other cat groups. We are delighted to say that she has several more appointments scheduled and we feel confident her new family is on the way! Meet Abigail here.
