How many pets did this grant help?

40 new intakes were helped and countless existing intakes indirectly by being able to provide these vaccines at no cost to the 40

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

1-2. Judy & Lincoln were siblings who we were able to intake solely because we had free vaccines provided to us. Otherwise, it would not have been in the budget. Upon intake it was noticed that Judy had a condition with her eye which a generous donor then sponsored the treatment for. Judy & Lincoln may not have been assisted otherwise. Judy has since healed and the siblings were adopted into a purrever home together. rnrn3. Monticola known as Monti for short came to us in a group of 5 kittens that we would not have been able to assist without the vaccine grant. Upon arrival Monti and his siblings were treated for URI & diarrhea. These conditions have since been treated and resolved and instead of being a stray cat, Monti was adopted into a loving purrever home. His sister Snow was placed in foster and we were able to board his 3 brothers – Dominique,Austin and Brianrnrn4. BJ was part of a group of 3 siblings as well – all were helped through the grant and otherwise would not have been had we not had the grant. BJ and his two sisters Blackie and Stripey were placed in foster care. The foster fell in love w/ BJ who looked like her cat CJ and immediately adopted BJ. In the photo HT Memphis 7, BJ is pictured sleeping while his older brother CJ (formerly known as Memphis and also adopted from SWVAL) watches over him.rnrn5. Emily and her siblings Butter, Gracie and Tigger were all assisted via the grant and otherwise would not have been without it. Tigger and Butter went on the trip to Last Chance Rescue. Last Chance is a larger rescue in Maryland and part of the CFC. Emily was adopted just before the trip and Gracie stayed behind due to a URI (since treated and resolved) and was placed into foster care. rn
