A Forever Home Rescue Foundation: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

the entire grant was used to cover heartworm treatment for several dogs from Mississippi. We have a partnership with a couple of rescues in Mississippi and Louisiana and they have few resources. Having the cost of heartworm treatment covered enabled us to have these dogs treated and brought to us in Virginia.

It saved their lives.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Daisy (first photo) is a schnauzer mix. Daisy was found as a stray in rural Mississippi. Her family never came looking for her. This lucky girl had adopters lined up and her new family waited months for her to finish her heartworm treatment so she could start her new life with them.

Khloe (second photo) is a shepherd/Lab mix. She was found under an abandoned restaurant with her puppies. We found homes for her puppies and brought Khloe to Virginia after her heatworm treatment. She as adopted immediately upon arriving in Virginia.

Ollie (third photo) is a Catahoula/pit mix. He was found on the side of a highway in rural Mississippi. He was adopted almost immediately after arriving in Virginia.

Sadie (fourth photo) is a miniature pinscher mix. She was found in the middle of a road in rural Mississippi. She was taken to Animal Control, but her family never came looking for her. Sadie was adopted shortly after arriving in Virginia on June 13, 2020.
