Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Three kittens helped by the vaccines were brought in after being trapped behind some college apartments. It is an area that is a frequent problem and has also been an area known for ill looking cats. Happily, these kittens were trapped and were able to be vaccinated upon arrival to our shelter and should be ready for adoption very soon! Since many owners do not provide routine vaccinations for their cats, it is wonderful that they will at least receive two to three vaccines before leaving our shelter. rnAnother cat helped was “Kitty”, who was found almost bald form flea infestation. She is a wonderful cat that is very social and had to have been a pet before being lost or left at a local park. An older gentleman saw her trying to get into a garbage can and was able to get her into our shelter. She has been spayed, tested and vaccinated and almost has a decent hair coat back!
