Beaumont Pets Alive: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The funds were used to help two dogs get pulled off the euthanasia list and get adoption-ready.
Specifically, the grant paid for two neuters, fecal tests and treatment for worms and parasites, heartworm tests, and vaccines for rabies, DHLP, and kennel cough, and one heartworm treatment.
This grant helped us save two great dogs off the euthanasia list who deserved a chance for forever homes. The vetting and treatment they both needed would not have been possible without the grant we received from the Petfinder Foundation.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
First was Barkley (first four photos). He was pulled off the euthanasia list at our city shelter. Due to COVID-19, the city shelter was full and this sweet boy was on the euthanasia because he wasn’t sure of strangers. We pulled him, tested, vaccinated and neutered him and started working with him to get him more comfortable with people. It took a couple of weeks, but he blossomed and was adopted and is much loved in his new home.
Second was Naz (last three photos). Naz was on the euthanasia list because he was heartworm-positive and didn’t like to share his toys (probably because he’d never had any). Naz was tested, vaccinated, sterilized and treated for heartworms and went into a foster family for a few weeks. He learned to share and got along great with kids and the other dog in the house. He was also adopted into a wonderful home.
