Trempealeau County Humane Society: Bissell Rescue U Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We purchased industrial protective coating for our floors from Manhattan Coatings.
Our director and one other volunteer were able to paint the floor during the week of Thanksgiving 2013. You can see from the pictures the huge improvement in the way our floors looked. The coating helps prevent "raw paw." The coating is urine-resistant, bacteria- and germ-resistant. Painting our floors certainly help our pets stay healthier. The coating is also skid-free, which keeps it safer for our volunteers. Painting the floor also makes the shelter more inviting when visitors arrive.
How many pets did this grant help?
It helped as many pets as passed through our doors from November of 2013 until now. Last year we sheltered 101 cats and dogs; 48 dogs and 30 cats were rehomed.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Since we used the money to paint our floors, I don’t have a specific animal story. Please look at our pictures and note our happy, healthy kitties. Zippy, the Springer Spaniel, meets a potential adopter in our office.
