North Utah Valley Animal Shelter: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Vaccinations were used for vaccinating animals on intake at our shelter.
Here at our shelter, our goal is to get the animals out the door as soon as we can. We don't typically have an animal more than two to three weeks. While they are here with us, we know the risk of picking something up here is great. Despite all the cleaning and disinfecting we do here. We feel this grant helped the dogs and cats have a little more chance of leaving here without a health problem. It also helped the new pet owners who took the new animal home, not have a health issue to deal with after adopting. Unfortunately, we have run out of those vaccines from the grant, and have had to go back to the old way of doing it, and vaccinate only dogs and cats who are being adopted on their way out the door.
How many pets did this grant help?
233 Dogs, 186 Cats.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Roger came into our shelter as a stray over two months ago. He is a happy dog. He also is one of the last dogs we have here now, who received the BIVI vaccinations on intake, from the Shot at Life grant. We feel that the vaccinations have helped him stay healthy while he has been here.
