Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
I’ve attached a photo of one of our puppies, Molly. Molly, and other puppies like her, are able to receive their spays/neuters at our facility. Because we are able to care for puppies like Molly at our shelter, we are able to decrease the amount of time between intake, wellness exam, spay/neuter, and then adoption. This shortened timeframe for our puppies to get adopted means that they are not as exposed to many common shelter ailments that could place their health at risk.
