The Humane Society and Animal Rescue of Muskegon County: Bar Dog Operation Grant Report

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

We used the $500 granted to us to purchase one month's worth of vaccines for our shelter pets.

This was a blessing; we were able to vaccinate a month's worth of pets coming into our care. Vaccinations ensure that our pets remain healthy as they wait to find their forever homes. Vaccines are a big expense for our organization, so we appreciate grants that can help cover these kinds of required medical costs of running an animal shelter.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

During this grant period, we had a transport mission that went down to Arkansas and brought up 19 dogs that were in desperate need at one of our partner shelters. Bringing these dogs up while continuing our normal intake can put a strain on our medical budget, but thanks to the support of this grant, we were able to cover the vaccine costs without issue.

I’m attaching photos of animals that cane to us from this rescue and benefitted from the vaccines purchased by this grant.

One in particular is Popcorn (first photo), a gorgeous white puppy who arrived malnourished. We are hoping Popcorn will find his fur’ever home this week. The majority of the animals from this transport have found homes already, though.
