R.O.A.R. to Protect Orphaned Kittens from Disease

Give to us through Global Giving from 10/14-11/12 and have double the impact for homeless pets like Pacer.

Our grant helped Perry County Animal Shelter in Cannelton, Ind., save and vaccinate two litters of tiny, orphaned kittens who were abandoned by their mothers before they were weaned. And if you donate to us through Global Giving from Oct. 14-Nov. 12, you’ll help twice as many homeless pets like Pacer (above).

For those 30 days, Animal Planet’s R.O.A.R. is matching donations to the Petfinder Foundation dollar-for-dollar (learn more about the campaign here). That means we can help groups like Perry County Animal Shelter save twice as many at-risk kittens.  Shelter Manager Tiffany Reed tells us how our vaccination grant has made a difference:

“The Perry County Animal Shelter has given vaccines to 39 felines, 22 of which have received their second booster vaccine, since the awarding of the FVRCP vaccinations. Out of the 39 homeless felines 17 have been adopted into their forever homes; which has left 22 hopeful souls in the care of the Perry County Animal Shelter.

“This vaccine grant has allowed the Perry County Animal Shelter to help two litters of kittens that were abandoned by their mother and not weaned. Both litters of kittens are thriving, eating solid food, and one set will be receiving their final boosters in the next few days. The younger set will be receiving their second booster in a couple of weeks.”

Pacer and many other cats at PAWS have been helped by our A Shot at Life vaccination grant program, supported by Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc., The Animal Rescue Site and
