Creatures by Theresa Zoo and Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

Since we couldn't have adoption events, we used the money for payments on utilities, insurance, and a partial building payment.

The $500 grant helped keep our payments on essential items up to date, so that when we started adopting animals again and doing other events, we were not playing catch-up with those bills. Thank you so very much!!!

How many pets did this grant help?

All 77. It kept our utilities up-to-date, paid insurance and assisted with a building payment.

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

This is Darwin, the white guinea pig. He came in with a buddy, Newton. Darwin was very skinny and not as chubby Newton. The grant funds helped him by getting him the medical care he needed. He had a bad respiratory infection, which kept him from eating well or feeling very well. After a long, steady course of antibiotics, he came around and started to eat much better. The second picture is the two of them in a carrier, headed to their new home.
