PurrHaven, Inc.: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

The COVID-19 Operation Grant was used to purchased cat food for the cats and kittens in our care. It helped us feed both the adoptable and long-term foster cats at our sanctuary. The company where the president of PurrHaven worked closed it doors on April 1, 2020, as a result of COVID-19. This was the only source of revenue for food, which is a major weekly cost. The grant provided a much-needed buffer for a few weeks until a new source of income came through.

The COVID-19 Operation Grant provided much-needed cat food for the cats and kittens at our sanctuary, both those who will be going up for adoption and those who are long-term fosters.

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

Chanel (first photo) was one of the young cats who benefited from the COVID-19 Operation Grant. She is a very tiny calico who is currently available for adoption and is located need Frederick, Maryland. Chanel is from a TNR project in Dargan, Maryland, in 2018 where we could not return her due to the unhealthy conditions on the caregiver’s property. We spayed adults but brought the kittens to our sanctuary. She is a lovely, sweet girl who loves to curl up every night next to me in bed because the bed is her favorite spot! Meet Chanel here.
