Kitty City Kansas Rescue: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

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

Vaccinating kittens

Lifesaving. We take in young kittens from shelters and local animal control facilities. These kittens are very vulnerable and susceptible to deadly disease. There is no doubt that by vaccinating these kittens on intake, the vaccinations save many lives.

How many pets did this grant help?

The average kitten we take in will receive 2 vaccinations (sometimes more) prior to adoption. This grant will probably help about 75 kittens

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

Faith is an absolute LOVE, so sweet! She and her siblings came to us from [a regional shelter]. Faith is very playful and normal in every way with the exception she has a leg deformity which is the result of inbreeding. Her front legs turn inward, which forces her to walk primarily on her front forelegs rather than front paws. When she sits up, she looks like a baby T-Rex; it’s the cutest thing (see photo). Faith has no clue she isn’t like every other cat! In fact, she can climb, run, jump, and play with absolutely no problems! And when she’s finished rough housing with her brothers, she wants to be on her persons! She will purr and nuzzle under your chin. She snuggles next to her foster mom every night! Faith has already received 3 vaccinations provided by this grant and is now ready for adoption. Update: Faith was adopted Oct, 26th, 2013 to a wonderful family that lives in Olathe, KS!
