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

To help Shelly, an Angora rabbit

Shelly, an Angora rabbit, came to the MSPCA Cape Cod Adoption Center on Sept. 8, 2015 after Animal Control officers found her along with several other Angoras being severely neglected.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Angora rabbits typically have long fur. Shelly was completely matted, some had wounds, and all were underweight and covered in parasites. They were all groomed and treated for the parasites, and after several weeks we put them up for adoption. Shelly’s before picture (with the patchy fur) is quite a stark difference from her gorgeous looks today (second photo, with her best friend, Care Bear)! She was successfully adopted and is living the life in her new forever home!
