Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

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

We received $300 Feloguard FVRCP vaccines to vaccinate cats who came into the shelter.

We are so grateful for the Shot at Life vaccination grant given to us by the Petfinder Foundation. With the FVRCP vaccinations that we received, we were able to confidently adopt healthy cats into wonderful new homes, knowing that they were protected against viruses such as Feline distemper. - Erin Sandle, Shelter Manager

How many pets did this grant help?

We used all 150 vaccines to help 150 cats.

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

Moose is one of the lucky kittens who received the vaccine. Moose was found abandoned with his mom and 5 brothers and sisters, and brought to the shelter by a kind person who wanted them to find a loving home. Moose is all kitten, happy and playful, and he was just what adopter Kelly Smith was looking for. Kelly was looking for a companion to keep her company, and when she saw Moose, it was love at first sight. Moose now has a happy home where he will be loved and cherished, and he left our shelter healthy and ready to just be a kitten! And it is in part because of your generous grant. Pebbles found a wonderful new home with Michelle, and has a new human brother Sammy! Little Pebbles was actually born here at the shelter to a kitty who had been found as a stray. Thanks in part to this generous grant, mom was vaccinated against feline distemper and her kittens were born healthy. Pebbles spent some time in foster care growing up, but she recently returned to the shelter, ready to find a home. When Sammy and Michelle came to the shelter today, it was love at first sight when they saw Pebbles. They could not wait to get their newest family member home, and thanks to the care Pebbles received while at Lollypop Farm, including FVRCP vaccines from the Shot At Life grant, they were confident that they were taking home a healthy kitten.
