Wood County Humane Society: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used the money to help pay for prescription food, glucose-testing supplies, insulin, surgery for a cat that was hit by a car, a tail amputation, and medications for critically ill animals.
We are an organization that runs solely on grants and donations from the public, so the money we received helps our "special-needs" animals that require a little more money to be ready for adoption.
How many pets did this grant help?
The money donated went into our emergency medical fund which right now is helping five animals.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Currently we have a diabetic cat named Abra who requires prescription food, daily glucose testing and insulin injections. She is a staff and volunteer favorite because even though she gets poked and prodded daily she still has a very sweet disposition. It also helps that she has gorgeous black fur and big gold eyes that just suck you in.
Dakota came to us after he was hit by a car. He has a broken pelvis and had to have his tail amputated. He is unable to go to the bathroom on his own and needs to have his bladder and bowels expressed multiple times daily. Despite being in pain he is still sweet as can be and loves to be pet. He is quite the talker and lets you know when he thinks it’s time to eat. He is on the road to recovery, though, and will make a great companion for someone once he has healed up.
