Arabian Rescue Mission, Inc.: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used the COVID-19 grant money to pay feed bills at Southern States in Elizabethtown, KY.
Having the extra funds to pay feed bills with was an enourmous help. During these times, we were struggling and the bill was mounting each month. So with the two COVID grants we received, including the Petfinder Foundation's, and a little bit from our general fund, we were able to pay a whole month's worth of feed bills. We are now current on our feed account.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Obsidian and Hematite were rescued from the slaughter pipeline on March 13 at a low-end auction in Tennessee. Both were pregnant and feral. Obsidian “Dian” gave birth that night and volunteers moved quickly to pick them up and get them to an isolation care facility for 30 days of quarantine. Dian gave birth to a healthy baby girl who is now named Marvelle (first and second photos).
All three horses came home to our farm on April 14 and three weeks later, Hemi (third photo) gave birth to a healthy boy (fourth photo).
While we still can’t touch the mothers, Marvelle is making some progress and Hemi’s baby, Corey (short for Corona), is a love bug who just wants attention and touching all the time. All four are healthy and happy and we will continue working with them until their forever homes are found. Thank you!
