Souris Valley Animal Shelter: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

The $250 awarded by the Petfinder Foundation was used to purchase vaccines for cats and dogs being placed in foster homes during COVID-19.

The Souris Valley Animal Shelter would not have been able to provide the additional vaccines needed to intake more pets to be placed into foster without the grant funding.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

This is Pepper. Due to grant funding from the Petfinder Foundation, SVAS was able to purchase additional vaccines to place strays into foster homes while the facility was closed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Why did we choose Pepper to highlight for this grant? Pepper was the first foster-to-adoption for SVAS in the entire 42 years the organization has been open! It was incredible to launch a foster program, battle through the financial barriers of the pandemic, and accomplish adoptions offsite. None of it would have been possible without additional funding for vaccines. Thank you!
