Capital Area Rescue Effort (CARE): COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

To fill the gap between our adoption fee and the additional expenses being incurred for each dog saved from euthanasia and staying with the rescue longer due to the pandemic. These expenses included food, heartworm preventative, flea and tick preventative and any additional medical care the dogs required prior to their adoption.

This enabled us to rescue five more dogs so that they were not euthanized.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Asher is a precious little male papillon mix who is 4 years old and fully grown at 7 lbs. This little guy came to CARE from a hoarding/backyard-breeding situation with 17 other dogs and was shy and fearful. We believed that Asher needed an experienced and patient owner to allow him time to learn to be a cherished pet. It took a couple of months, but that adopter came along, willing to open their heart to him.

Thank you, Petfinder Foundation, for helping Asher!
