Atchison Animal Control: Shelter+ Challenge Grant Report

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

This grant allowed me to spay/neuter hard-to-adopt dogs. It couldn't have been done without the grant. Primarily pit bulls were altered. I was also able to help a kitty who had been attacked by dogs and suffered a broken front leg.

TREMENDOUSLY helped! Pit bulls are hard to adopt, and getting them altered to have a reduced adoption fee allowed them to be more easily adoptable.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

I was able to save a cat named Hettie who had been attacked by dogs in a backyard. Hettie suffered a broken front leg as a result. She was spayed and a cast was applied to her front leg at a cost of $280. She is now living happily ever after in her new home. I was also able to save Mika, female Staffordshire Bull Terrier. She was a cruelty case of neglect. She is the sweetest, gentlest soul alive. Can’t wait for her happily ever after.
