Friends of Animal Control and Rescue dba Crestwood Animal Shelter: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

The grant money was used for veterinary care for four of our shelter animals.

The COVID-19 pandemic necessitated the cancellation of two major fundraisers this year. As a shelter that relies 100 percent on donations, it was a financial blow. The Petfinder Foundation grant has allowed us to continue to give the pets at our shelter the health care they deserve.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Miranda (first photo) came from a tragic cat-hoarding situation in a nearby community. A local shelter, Feral City 4 Feral Kitties, helped to find a foster home for her. When she arrived at our shelter for permanent placement, she was taken to our veterinarian for a wellness check, microchipping, and treatment to clear up an ear condition. She was adopted immediately. The adoption occurred so quickly that we didn’t have time to put her profile on the Petfinder website.

Benny (second photo) is a 2-year-old pittie mix. He is sweet, playful, and a lovebug. He likes to be with his people. He is also good with other dogs. He does need a fenced yard to run in. He is not good with cats or small dogs. Dogs his size or larger, he is great with. You can meet Benny here.
