Tullahoma Animal Shelter: Mohawk Operation Grant Report

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

The $1,000 was spent to spay/neuter shelter dogs and to provide much-needed medical care for the animals in our shelter.

This grant helped our shelter by ensuring that all dogs who needed vet care received it. It was also used to help fund the alteration of animals which makes them easier to adopt and also decreases the pet population in our area. Several animals benefited from this grant and have a chance at a better life because of it.

How many pets did this grant help?

25 dogs were spayed or neutered with the grant money and we were able to get medical treatment for another 10 dogs! So 35 lives were changed.

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

Pine was hit by a car and because of the funds we received, he was treated and made a great recovery. He had neurological damage so his head still tilts, but he is so sweet and loving. Pine (first photo) was saved and adopted by a great family with a little girl to call his own.

Sally and Kleo (second photo) were turned in to the shelter after their owner passed away. The grandchildren did not want to care for these senior girls. We were able to vet them both and place them in a great home together.

Rocky (third photo) entered our shelter after his family moved and left him behind. We were able to get him vetted and he was adopted to a great home!

Sweet Pea (fourth photo) was brought in as a stray and was ready to give birth at any time. We immediately took her to the vet and she had her puppies that night. Without these funds, she would have been stressed having her babies in the shelter. We were able to keep these babies at the vet’s office until they were ready to be adopted!
