Underdog Pet Rescue of Wisconsin: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant Report

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

Vaccinating our dogs and cats, puppies and kittens in foster care.

We were able to save a significant amount of money by having our vet use the vaccines donated to our rescue. This helped us be able to take in more kittens from overflowing shelters this spring than usual and a few more dogs than we would have been able to otherwise help.

How many pets did this grant help?

So far, I'd say 25.

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

Lucy is a pretty little Pittie. She came to us from and (open-admission shelter), where she had been for over a month. That facility will euthanize for any signs of aggression in pitties, and the fact she was there for so long helped us know that she was a keeper. Plus she did great on all her temperament testing there. We agreed to to take her in and we were able to get her vaccinated with supplies from this grant. We were able to afford her care due to the saving we had on using the vaccines on other animals. We couldn’t be happier (or more appreciative) for this great ‘Shot at Life’ for sweet Lucy.
