Animatch, Inc.: Grant Report

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

Animatch was in need of new transport crates to replace the old, broken, and rusted ones.

The grant helped Animatch buy new transport crates. Being a small shelter, we make weekly trips to our veterinarian. Without adequate crates, it means that some dogs would not be able to make the trip. The new crates mean that Animatch can now take on and help more dogs in need, and ensure that they are seen by our vet without delay.

How many pets did this grant help?

We have included the stories of the three dogs who were the most in need of these crates for vet care. However, this grant will continue to help ensure that all dogs in our shelter will receive the veterinary care necessary.

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

Boris (first photo), Charley (second photo) and Peewee (third photo) are three senior dogs who were flown to Montreal by volunteer pilots from a rescue hundreds of miles away. The dogs were then picked up at the airport by more volunteers and brought to Animatch. The trio required extensive veterinary care, which Animatch provided. They are all feeling so much better now, and are ready to live their golden years in good health with loving families! Peewee has already been adopted, and it won’t be long for Charley and Boris. Thanks to the Petfinder Foundation’s Adoption Options in Action grant, these dogs were able to travel by plane and car in safe, secure dog carriers!
