Top Dog Animal Rescue Group: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

The money was used for routine veterinary care for four animals (two kitties and two dogs) in order to allow them to be adopted, and the remaining funds were used for food and litter, which benefited all of the animals at the rescue.

With a slowdown in donations and adoptions, these funds allowed us to continue to take in pets and get their vet care so they could be adoptable, and allowed us to offset some of the food costs with fewer rescue funds available in our account.

How many pets did this grant help?

It helped four directly, and 26 more via food and litter.

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

Nina (first and second photos) was a pregnant female kitty that was likely abandoned outside in Detroit and was captured by the shelter. Friends of the shelter were trying to find a rescue for her to go to to avoid having the kittens in the shelter. Top Dog Rescue stepped up. Her kittens were born within a week after her arrival at the rescue. After her kittens were born and weaned and doing great, we were able to get (with help from your grant) all of her veterinary care to allow her to be adopted into a new loving, permanent home, and this beautiful girl found a wonderful forever home. What a difference a few weeks has made in the life of this girl!!
