Pitt County Animal Services: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

All of these funds were spent on veterinarian bills. Beginning on March 16, we began getting all shelter animals into foster homes and, as we had to take in new animals, continued placing them with fosters.

It assisted us in being able to place animals who came into our care and custody into foster homes by being able to treat medical conditions instead of euthanizing them simply due to lack of funds to treat and care for them. We are happy to report that all animals treated and placed with fosters were able to be adopted.

How many pets did this grant help?

Six dogs and several kittens

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

Two puppies came in with severe mange. We were able to begin starting their treatment and successfully adopted them into homes! Without this grant and being able to begin treatment, the puppies would have been very uncomfortable and would have deteriorated and been harder to place into homes.
