Ulysses Animal Shelter: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

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

We received vaccinations that were used to vaccinate older animals outside of our normal protocol.

Animals that normally would not have gotten a multi way parvo vaccination on intake were given a vaccination due to this grant donation. This helped with the health of not only the animals but as well as the over all health in the shelter. This also allowed animals that were transfered to rescue organizations to have a vaccination on board longer as well as saving the shelter money to be able to use on other health items for getting these animals placed.

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

Skywalker was a Husky that came into the shelter. Skywalker is a very friendly and playful guy. Huskies are hard to place in Western Kansas due to multiple reasons including the weather as well as lack of knowledge on the part of possible owners on the challenges that owning a husky has. Skywalker was accepted to a rescue out of Colorado. Thanks to having his vaccination already given we were able to get his additional vetting done and get him out of our shelter quicker and on to a rescue where he was adopted out in July. Below we have attached pictures of Skywalker at our shelter and a picture of him with part of his new family in Colorado.
