Last Hope, Inc.: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The $750 grant was used to help Last Hope continue our rescue efforts during the pandemic. It helped to defray the ongoing costs of operating the Last Hope Adoption Center during Covid 19. This included providing food and other supplies to the Last Hope families fostering our dogs and cats while the Adoption Center was closed. Our revenues since March 2020 have been severely reduced due to the cancellation of at least six fundraising events.
This grant helped us continue to care for the animals in our care while we were closed during the pandemic.
How many pets did this grant help?
This grant helped about 25-30 animals.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Boogie is a beagle currently listed on Petfinder. He is about 3 years old and has been in foster care with a Last Hope family since the shutdown started in the middle of March. Boogie began having seizures several months before the COVID crisis. His seizure medications have been fine-tuned during his time in foster care.
Boogie is an active boy, originally rescued from a Kentucky shelter, and will do best with a retired person or couple who like to take long walks. Boogie settles nicely after a daily two-mile jaunt. Otherwise, he is still energetic and very loving. He is still waiting for his forever home! You can meet him here.
