Six Kittens Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

We received a $250 COVID relief grant. This money directly went towards the cost of first vet exams, feline leukemia/FIV screens, and first vaccines for a litter of five kittens: Storm, Thunder, Lightning, Snow, and Rain.

This helped our organization because it greatly helped to reduce the financial burden of caring for so many kittens during COVID. We have seen donations decline significantly during the pandemic, which has made our organization financially strapped.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

All five kittens were listed as adoptable after their first vet visit. Lightning (first and second photos) is an all-black kitten, but has some significantly crossed eyes. We received an inquiry from a family of six about adopting Lightning. The youngest daughter also suffers from severely crossed eyes and has to wear special glasses to help her see. When she saw Lightning’s picture, she told her mom that she was so excited for the opportunity to have a kitten that is just like her! It touched all of our hearts as we aren’t just here to help the kittens. We are also helping families become whole!
