Catman2 Inc.: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Providing FVRCP vaccines to kittens and cats during kitten season 2013 to reduce feline disease and illness in our community and shelters
We were able to vaccinate stray cats and kittens when assisting their spay/neuter. It kept our foster homes filled with healthy kittens and allowed us to use the funds we would have spent on vaccinating these animals on other important shelter needs.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Jemma was a tiny kitten who was found abandoned by a Dumpster with her mother. The Good Samaritan who found this kitty family and took them in reached out to us for help. Our shelter manager went to her house and vaccinated the mother cat and baby Jemma. We eventually facilitated Jemma’s adoption into a loving forever home. Helping prevent illness in Jemma and her mother allowed her foster parent to take them in and provide for them while we waited for a home for Jemma. Jemma’s mom became a foster failure for the Good Samaritan who took her in.
