Our grant was used to help pay for the care of bottle babies who had been orphaned, abandoned or rejected by their mothers. We have had a large number of bottle kittens come in this summer. We needed supplies, vaccinations, spay/neuters, medications and medical treatments to save these little lives. We used these funds on feeding supplies and vaccinations.
Grants like this one allow us to take kittens we may otherwise have to turn away. Knowing we have the funds to support their care for a few months is a great relief to not only our volunteers but our animal control officers and local pound staff.
This little black kitten (first photo) came to us with a cleft palate and lip, along with one smaller eye. He has been in foster care since he was born. He has not been adopted yet, but we know he will be soon.
The other kittens are all bottle babies who will be adopted out when they are of the appropriate age.
