Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter in Texas: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Vaccinate shelter cats and dogs
By providing the vaccinations, we were able to booster some of the cats and dogs in our care. This allowed added protection against illness in the shelter population.
How many pets did this grant help?
All the vaccines were used and admisnistered to incoming pets. I don't have a record of how many vaccines we recieved.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
I don’t have a specific story. Even though we are an open admission shelter that intakes ober 7,700 animals annually, we save at least 90 percent of them, mostly through adoption. Keeping them healthy is a huge part of the success and challenge in the shelter setting. Without vaccinations we should not be able to save as many animals. With this grant we were also able to booster some of the animals that took longer to find their home.
