We used the grant for spays and neuters.
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.

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!
