Pawsibilities Are Endless: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
5-way, bordetella and FVRCP vaccines, wormer, cat food, kitten food, Revolution, litter, horse-stall pellets (which we use as inexpensive litter), and wet cat food for the animals in our care. We also ordered 1,400 pounds of food for our foster animals and animals in our community.
We are able to order the supplies we needed to properly care for the animals in our rescue, to continue to intake animals and also to help animals in our community with much-needed food. The Mobile Food Bank also helps us keep in touch with the folks in our community, so it assisted us in helping a high number of those folks get their pets altered and vaccinated as well, even though the grant didn't pay for that part (spay and neuter) of the program. We were able to continue to give vaccines, wormer and flea meds to the animals in our care.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
It’s hard to choose one because there have been so many. However, there is a little 5-lb. torti cat who was stuck in the wall of an apartment complex for weeks. We were able to bribe her out and into a trap using wet cat food. She was then vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped and is currently adoptable through our program.
We also received several pregnant mamas to whom we were able to provide kitten food. Their kittens have received the benefit of the wormer and will soon be receiving the vaccinations we were able to purchase. We would never have been able to take in 50 mamas and babies if it were not for this grant!
Rosa was adopted. We were able to update her wormer and vaccines before adopting her out! She’s the beautiful pit bull in the photos we attached.
Luna was also adopted. We were able to provide her appropriate vaccines and wormer using these grant funds.
