Second Chance Animal Shelter: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

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

We received FVRCP vaccinations. These were used to vaccinate our shelter cats.

This helped our organization by providing us with vaccines that helped to save us money on vaccines. This grant helped us to be able to provide vaccinations to our shelter cats. This year was an especially tough year as many of the cats that came into our shelter had not had vaccines prior to intake. This meant that we had to vaccinate these cats, as well as provide a second FVRCP vaccine if necessary.

How many pets did this grant help?

This grant help to vaccinate 200 cats.

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

Cheri and her two kittens, Peter and Brandy, came into our shelter. The owner had too many pets to care for. Cheri had no prior vaccines so she required not just the initial FVRCP vaccine, but a second vaccine 30 days later. Her kittens also required vaccines. One of the kittens, Brandy, was born with only one eye. This grant helped us by providing these vaccines. The cost of care for shelter pets continues to rise each year so the savings of these vaccines is a wonderful help in our mission.
