Iredell County Animal Services: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

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

The product was used to vaccinate adoptable cats at our shelter. We do not routinely vaccinated incoming felines, but this grant allowed us to vaccinate cats that on intake at the shelter could be potential adoption candidates

This grant aided in vaccination of cats that were placed for adoption, and allowing earlier vaccination of cats that had the potential of adoption to aid in the decrease of disease.

How many pets did this grant help?

Currently, we are still using the vaccinations to vaccinate cats that have the potential for adoption. From start of the grant in September we have vaccinated over 50 cats and are continuing to use the vaccines

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

This is Cornbread, who was adopted on Oct. 4. She went to live with a family where their 2-year-old will cherish this little girl forever!

Cornbread originally came to us as an owner surrender (along with some litter mates).

Chucky (second photo) was adopted Oct. 29.

China (third photo) came to us after her adopted owners surrendered her less than a year after adopting her. Her owners were moving and had to give up their animals. China is barely over a year and seemed to liked the dogs that would come sniff around in the cat room! She was adopted to a wonderful home on Oct. 11!
