South Wood County Humane Society: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

The grant money received was used to spay/neuter all the unaltered animals in the building. We were able to get an extra date put aside with our veterinarian and he worked long hours to provide our animals with the surgeries needed.

This money helped us by providing the medical care necessary to get these animals adopted faster. Spending less time in the shelter helped staff with other projects.

How many pets did this grant help?

Nine cats and one dog

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

On July 10, there was dog named Bingo who came into our shelter as a surrender. A very cute corgi mix with a great personality, he was not vaccinated or neutered. Normally he would sit in the shelter until he was neutered.

We got very lucky that our vet had one opening on the same day as the nine cats we had scheduled with the grant money. We got Bingo all vaccinated and neutered. He is being adopted today, July 16, and is completely vetted. If not for the grant money, he would have sat in the shelter until the 24th instead of walking out our door a week early into the arms of his loving family. Thank you for helping this sweet boy and all nine cats.
