Forever Love Rescue, Inc.: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
To purchase distemper vaccines (2-3 per feline), FIV/FeLV tests, microchips and flea treatment/dewormer for the incoming cats and kittens. Our cost is $6.76 per vaccine, $12.75 per test, $8.95 for each microchip and $9.67 for each dose of Revolution. The cost to provide these supplies is $44.89 per cat. A $1,000 grant provides all of this for at least 20 cats. The remainder will be used to supplement our litter, food, kitten formula and general medicines supplies as they become low.
We were able to purchase the necessary supplies to get 20+ kittens off to a healthy start and ready for adoption! These cats and kittens will leave us protected against parasites and distemper. They are also microchipped to prevent them from being sheltered stray cats in the future -- a lifelong gift for them!
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
In April, Stretch (first photo; now named Willow) came to us a 2-week-old orphan kitten. Our foster mom Bobbie hand-raised her and her brother Armstrong. This month, Stretch was finally ready to find a loving home of her own. This grant helped us supply her with her distemper shot, microchip, and Revolution to get her ready for her forever home. She was spayed and vetted two weeks ago and was adopted last weekend! We were also able to add to our supply of kitten food and litter, which helps feed so many babies here!
