Eastern Shore Rabbit Rescue and Education Center, Inc.: COVID-19 Operation Grant

What was the money or product used for?

We used the grant for spays and neuters.

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

Because of COVID-19, the vet was only doing spays and neuters on an emergency basis. We had only four such operations between late February and early June. Around the time we received the grant money, the restrictions on “elective surgeries” were relaxed and we were able to catch up. We don’t adopt out pet rabbits unless they are spayed/neutered.

How many pets did this grant help?

Three male rabbits

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

Duke, a grey Netherland Dwarf, was neutered on June 8 using the COVID-19 Operation Grant and adopted Aug. 18. His family was so happy to have Duke join their family that they built a special large indoor habitat for him with places to climb and places to hide. They also created an Instagram account for Duke because he’s so cute!
