Vegas Pet Rescue Project: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

This grant is going straight to paying down a very high medical bill from VeCC.

This grant helps us greatly, especially since our public donations have decreased due to a large number of people being out of work. We have very high medical bills for some of our animals on top of basic foster-care costs.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Bear was taken in as a stray after Animal Control would not pick him up do to the Covid-19 crisis. He immediately started showing symptoms of parvo and needed to be rushed into our vets’ office. His case was so bad that he needed transport to the Emergency and Critical Care Center here in Las Vegas. He had six days of intensive care there, plus three days of parvo care at our regular vet. Bear is almost ready to get neutered, vaccinated and chipped and then will be placed on Petfinder for adoption once his six weeks of parvo shedding are finished.
