Humane Society of Polk County, Inc.: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

The money was used for the purchasing of insulin for our diabetic cat, Primrose.

We were able to put this money towards an added expense we took on when we had diagnosed her with being diabetic and, along with that, figuring out what levels she needs to be at. Finally we have her at 5 ccs twice a day and that seems to be working well for her.
