We got this note from Meredith Fiel at Adirondack Save A Stray in Corinth, NY, which recently received a vaccination grant from the Petfinder Foundation to recover from the impact of Hurricane Sandy:
“We were able to update the 65 cats and several kittens in our cat room and kitten area. This was done as a direct result of your fabulous grant. We were able to update all of the rabies and distemper vaccines to all that needed it. We are extremely grateful. We still have leftover vaccines and because of that, we were able to take in and rescue additional cats and dogs and many have been placed into loving homes.
“Our cat room has free-roaming kitties. [Cats can spend time there] once they are vaccinated and vet-checked and all of the medical attention has been done. This cuts down on a lot of stress. Our puppies are in our puppy rooms and our older dogs are in the kitchen and adoption area and kenneled at night. We try to have a stress-free environment for all of our furbabies until they are adopted into loving and forever homes.
“Again, I want to thank you for all you have done on behalf of the animals here and everywhere. You have made many tails wag and hearts purr.”
