elizabethton carter county animal shelter: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

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

we have started vaccinating some of our kittens to try to prevent uri.

we don't have any budget for vaccinations and our cat adoption rate is so low, we couldn't spend the money on the vaccinations.

How many pets did this grant help?

so far we have vaccinated 56 kittens

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

Chessie was one of the first kittens vaccinated with your generous donation. She remained healthy and was adopted. Due to an unexpected health issue with the owner, Chessie was returned but because of that first vaccination and subsequent ones at the vet, she hasn’t gotten sick at the shelter as so many incoming kittens do. We will be able to hold Chessie until a new home can be found knowing that she will be healthy.rnrnThank you so much for letting us participate in this program. In our rural area, cats and kittens aren’t given the same funding as dogs and we could never afford the vaccinations to give them the best start possible.
