Humane Society of Harrison County: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

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

We have used the donated vaccine to vaccinate all dogs and cats that have been surrendered for adoption at our facility

Adoptions go thru periods where some of the pets that we take in from their owners are harder to place than others. When we take in these pets they get an initial vaccination and we hope that they are adopted out before the next set of shots are due. Sometimes that doesn't happen.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

On April 4th, 2013 we arrived at work to find a litter of Border Collie mix puppies thrown over the fence. The pups were evaluated and put thru the pre-adoption work up. All received their first vacciantions and wormings. Several of the pups when really fast. Two pups stayed in the kennel until July 3, 2013. They have received a series of 4 vaccinations that they normally wouldn’t have received due to us having the free vaccine. We feel they are full covered now that they are in their new home.
