Paws Place Dog Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

The money Paws Place Dog Rescue received graciously from the Petfinder Foundation was used to purchase veterinary prescribed dog food to help our special dogs in need of medical care.

This grant helped provided the necessary food to heal our dogs, allowing them to become adopted faster. Without this funding, we wouldn't have been able to purchase the special food our dogs needed.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

One dog this grant helped was Katie Bug. She was rescued from a shelter in Georgia before delivering 10 beautiful, healthy puppies! About one week later, there were three puppies who needed a surrogate mom. Katie Bug to the rescue! She adopted these three pups as though they were her own.

The foster home reached out to us to see if we would be able to take these wonderful dogs. As restrictions were getting tighter due to COVID-19, it was decided that the transfer should happen sooner rather than later. Because the three little ones were doing so well, they asked if we could take them also. On April 4, Katie Bug and all 13 puppies arrived at Paws Place Dog Rescue in North Carolina.

We are thrilled to announce that Katie Bug was adopted in mid June and the last of the 13 puppies was adopted the last week of July.
