Shelter from the Storm Animal Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The generous grant funding from the Petfinder Foundation was used to provide essential, basic veterinary care to our shelter pets.
It costs our organization an average of $70 to provide standard, necessary veterinary care to our shelter animals. This care includes: spay/neuter, testing for heartworms, testing for feline leukemia, rabies and other core vaccinations, deworming, flea/tick prevention, and heartworm prevention.
The $250 awarded enabled us to spay/neuter and provide primary wellness care to two deserving cats and two grateful dogs.
How many pets did this grant help?
The $250 grant helped four shelter pets receive spay/neuter surgeries and primary wellness care.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Funding from the Petfinder Foundation provided veterinary care to four deserving shelter pets. Two kittens, Ankha and Zucker (first photo), are the sweetest siblings who came to our organization from a local humane society. After being spayed/neutered and receiving primary preventative care, Ankha and her brother were on the hunt for their furever home. This cuddly duo was tightly knit, and they hoped they would find a family that would adopt both of them.
We are so pleased to report that this lucky pair are happy in their furever home, and they can now spend their days playing and snuggling together with their new family (second photo).
We have also included photos of two of the pups, Flareon (third photo) and Iceberg (fourth photo), who received care thanks to the grant funding. Each pup is happy at home and settling in with their new families.
