OAR: Sponsor a Pet

What was the money or product used for?

Bridging the gap on kitten vetting versus adoption fee.

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

We are now in what we call “Kitten Purricane Season.” We offer a two-for-one adoption fee that many adopters of kittens accept. When we receive financial support, we can afford to take in more kittens from at-risk situations. We fully vet them, including deworming, combo test, vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping, so support from the Petfinder Foundation makes the difference to kittens like the Pizza Boys.

How many pets did this grant help?

This grant pays for the vetting of our four pizza boy kittens.

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

The “Pizza Boys” — kittens Domino (pictured), Donato, Jet and Marco — were born to a feral mom cat in rural Kentucky. The individual who TNR’ed the mom has fixed more than 20 ferals at the spay/neuter clinic associated with our shelter. She drove over 60 miles one way, twice in one day, to get the mother cat fixed and then, the very next morning, repeated the trip to get the kittens assessed. We think she is great for her tireless work fixing ferals.
