Greater Houston German Shepherd Dog Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

The money was used to help cover the cost of food and supplies for the dogs in our care.

The pandemic has been difficult for our organization, but with the help of the Petfinder Foundation, we have been able to continue to care for the dogs in our rescue and provide them with quality nutrition as we work to find them homes.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

One of our dogs helped by the Covid-19 grant is Remi, a young, energetic female who came to our rescue underweight and undernourished due to a digestive condition called EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency). EPI is an incurable, lifelong condition in which the pancreas is unable to produce digestive enzymes so a supplement is needed with every meal to aid in digestion. Due to the added financial stresses from the Covid-19 pandemic and the additional cost of care needed for Remi, getting her adopted has been a slow process.

Thanks to the help we received from the Petfinder Foundation, we’re able to provide Remi with the food and supplements she needs to get proper nutrition, gain weight and stay healthy as we work to find her a forever home. Remi is still available for adoption and would make a wonderful addition to a family or individual with an active lifestyle. If you’re interested, please view her page on Petfinder here.
