Pound Hounds ResQ: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

We used the grant money for vetting, specifically for spays and neuters

During COVID, the shelter that we are affiliated with, New York City Animal Care Centers, ceased doing spays and neuters due to the close proximity of the doctors in the room. It was up to the rescue groups to spay and neuter these animals, which was a financial burden. This grant helped us pay for these operations.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Beowoof was found tied up to a gate; the finder would have loved to keep him but had another dog and a baby due in two weeks. Beowoof is friendly and rolled over to give belly rubs, but was uncomfortable when we attempted to fit him with a harness. He’s also incredibly big and strong and needs someone who has the strength to handle him.

Beowoof was facing euthanasia when we pulled him and took him into our rescue. Michael, a friend of a previous adopter, was looking for a dog and fell in love with his picture and write-up. So he adopted him and Beowoof was neutered at a local vet. Michael was in a place in his life where he NEEDED something, and he and Beowoof were exactly what the other needed.
