Pet Refuge: Shelter Challenge Grant Report

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

The money was used for medical expenses, surgeries, spaying/neutering.

The grant helped us because we are always low on funds since we receive no municipal or state funding for our no-kill shelter.

How many pets did this grant help?

The grant money helped 6 of our animals - the three featured below and spaying/neutering for the other three.

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

GOLDIE was given up by her owner and came to us sick. Besides her fur being dirty and matted it was discovered her health was compromised to bladderstones. This picture was taken shortly after she returned to the shelter from. She is seen sitting on her Kuranda bed looking for her forever home.

ANGEL is a beautiful black Ragdoll who was turned in because was turned in because the breeder did not want her anymore. Angel desperately needed an emergency spay/surgery for pyometra, an infection of the uterus. She is a shy but very sweet looking for a home.

JANE was sick with upper respiratory that needed to be treated. She then received her routine shots, was spayed and then tested for FELV and FIV. Happily, Jane is now in a loving forever home.
