The grant was a 2020 COVID-19 Operation Grant in the amount of $750. This money helped cover many additional costs that we have incurred during the pandemic, particularly:
1. Since public clinics are shut, we have been forced to use private vets, which are much more expensive than public ones.
2. We are now helping many local colony feeders by providing cat food for them. Many of these local feeders are themselves facing financial crises of their own.
1. We have used some of the funds to cover extra costs at private vets.
2. We purchased cat food for several colony feeders.

Caitlin is a sweet 6-month-old girl who was in our foster program when she became very ill with a fever. Because the public vet clinics are closed, we had to go to a private vet, and her care was very expensive. She eventually got better and has been adopted.
