Frankie's Friends Cat Rescue, Inc.: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The money was used to spay/neuter, vaccinate, test, deworm, and flea-treat 25 cats and kittens who were recently surrendered to our facility. It also allowed us to provide medical treatment for these cats where it was needed. This cost approximately $400.
The remaining $350 was used to purchase food and litter for the cats being housed at our facility and waiting for adoption.
The money allowed us to continue our mission and take in injured and sick cats and kittens whom we otherwise would not have been able to help. They were provided with much-needed medical care, food, and litter and will now be ready to enter loving homes. We did not have to pull money from other places to continue to care for cats that we already had in-house, and thus we were able to continue with our regular intake process.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
A lady contacted us about nine sick female kittens who were living in a box under someone’s porch (first photo). The homeowner was unable to care for the kittens and therefore they were left to fend for themselves. We were able to take them into our facility (second photo) and provide them with medical care and food that they needed until they were big enough to be spayed. Among these kittens was little Cora (third and fourth photos), who was fixed last week and adopted into a loving home two days after (fifth photo). Had she and her sisters not been brought to our facility, they likely would not have survived through the illness that they had while outdoors.
