Utah Animal Adoption Center: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

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

The Shot at Life Vaccination grant was a donation of 100 vaccinations that have all been utilized due to our higher than usual volume of kitten litters we received this Fall at the Center.

This grant greatly impacted our Center at a time when we saw an influx of kitten litters entering municipal shelters desperately needing to be saved from euthanasia. The grant of 100 vaccines helped us save money on our overall medical expenses and were quickly used on our incoming kitten populations.

How many pets did this grant help?

50 kittens received initial and second booster vaccinations from this grant.

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

We recently received a large group of kittens from a shelter in central Utah. These kittens had not been vaccinated before we received them and were scheduled to be euthanized. Because of your funding of the vaccine donation we were able to rescue multiple litters (including the ones in the picture below) have them vaccinated and are now just awaiting the opportunity to spay and neuter them before they are offered up for adoption this holiday season.
