The grant award was used to purchase needed dog food and supplies for foster homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To limit the number of volunteers and staff in the shelter, all dogs in our care were moved into foster homes once our state was issued a COVID-19 shutdown order. This award allowed us to purchase food and other supplies needed for our foster homes to provide care for the dogs. This helped ease the financial burden of the COVID-19 impact on our shelter.
AJ (now Fez) is a 10-year-old Chihuahua who came to us when his owner could no longer care for him. AJ is still very active and has a quite a unique trait: His tongue sticks out of his mouth! One of our spay/neuter clinic employees volunteered to foster him while our shelter animals were placed into foster care. The two quickly became fast friends and AJ was soon adopted!
