Bark And Roll Rescue Companions: All-Star Dog Rescue Celebration Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Microchips, $350; vaccinations, $200; 15 spays $1,500; 10 neuters $500
We were able to care for many more animals due to the financial support from the All-Star grant. We were able to take funds that were typically allocated to ready pups for adoption (used for spay/neuter, microchip, vaccination, vet exams) since we had the grant for those needs and use those funds for heartworm treatment, as well as to assist many people in the community with spaying and neutering their personal animals to decrease the number of unplanned litters.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Maggie (first photo) was pulled from [an open-admission] rural shelter. She was terrified and took days before she would even let us touch her. She was heartworm-positive, malnourished, and had hair loss. Had we not received this grant we would have never had the extra funds to take on her emotional and physical needs. However, due to the generosity of this grant, we were able to take the funds we had previously allocated for adoption readiness and put it toward her treatment. Maggie is alive and living in her home today because of this grant.
Huck and Finn (second and third photo) are two pups who were surrendered to us feral, with hair loss related to flea infestation, at 10 weeks. Again, because of the money for the grant to provide adoption-readiness for our animals, we were able to take the previously allocated funds to purchase flea meds and we are happy to report that these boys are flea-free, their hair is grown back and they are playful, sweet, happy pups awaiting their forever homes. UPDATE: Finn has been adopted!
