Happy Homes Animal Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

The funds we were granted were used for the overflow of cats and kittens who were in need of rescue during COVID-19. We also helped multiple families during this time who had lost a loved one and there was a pet in need.

It helped offset the expenses we incurred during the beginning of COVID-19. Low-cost clinics were shut down, so most of our vetting was done at local vets and at higher costs then we normally pay.

How many pets did this grant help?

We were able to rescue about 15 cats and kittens.

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

During COVID-19, we rescued a cat who’d been found on the streets and had severe dental problems and a bad upper-respiratory infection. Harvey was also covered in wounds, so we weren’t surprised that he tested FIV-positive. We were able to use some of the grant funds to help get Harvey healthy and into his forever home.
