Operation Paw Time, Inc.: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

This grant was used for Sully, an adult cat, to cover needed dental surgery.

As for the organization, this grant helped tremendously. We live in a small town and we are not always blessed with help in donations. Many of the cats that come to us need more than just basic care so they can become adoptable. Getting enough funding for all the medical costs needed for each cat most of the time proves a great struggle. This particular grant we received helped an adult cat named Sully. Sully has had many issues since coming into the rescue but the main issue and the most costly was his need for dental surgery. This grant made it possible for Sully to have surgery and not be in any more pain, making him adoptable.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

This grant helped a rescued cat named Sully. Sully was at [an open-admission] shelter and only a day away from being euthanized. Sully was deemed a feral stray. Upon Sully’s arrival at the rescue, we could tell he was in fact a very loving cat who had just had a rough start in life. He has had many medical issues, but this has not hindered his loving nature. After lots of TLC and many vet visits, including his neuter surgery, we thought Sully would soon be adopted. Then he began to lose weight for no reason and had trouble eating foods, even soft. After yet another vet trip, we learned Sully needed a good bit of dental work before he could finally get better. It has been a long, hard road for Sully, but now thanks to this grant he is completely better and so ready to be adopted.
