Mission for Paws: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

Spay and neuter surgeries.

Houston has one of the largest homeless animal issues in the United States. It has been estimated that there are nearly 1.2 million homeless dogs and cats in the Houston metro and surrounding areas. Spay-and-neuter initiatives are few and preventing more unwanted litters is paramount to our mission. We were able to continue our mission of spay/neuter and prevent the cycle of unwanted litters in our program of cats and kittens.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Daichi and Ten were two of the kittens who were brought to us dumped in a box at a rural property — unfortunately a very common in practice in Texas. Their photo was heartbreaking, and although we were strapped financially, we could not say no to the plea for help. We received them dirty, thin, hungry and terribly sick with upper-respiratory infections. We have some wonderful and experienced medical foster moms who were able to rehabilitate the kittens. You can meet Daichi here and meet Ten here.
