Loving Heart Animal Shelter: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

We have a senior special-needs boy who has to have daily prescription medications and prescription food. This money helped us purchase the bottle of Apoquel for his skin allergies. It also bought a bag of his ZD prescription food.

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

This helped us because right now with the Covid-19 pandemic, donations are down. We have to find ways to raise money because all public fundraisers have been cancelled.

Meet Frankie. We think he is about 10, but we’re not sure how old he really is. He was abandoned with three other dogs. We took them all in a few years ago. All have been adopted except Frankie. Finding someone to take on the added expense of a senior pet has been tough. He also was diagnosed with oral cancer last fall. We currently are looking only for hospice-type home for him.

We gave Frisco and Diego time out with the equipment. As you can see in the pictures, they truly enjoyed and loved all of it. From Frisco’s Petfinder profile: “Say hello to Frisco! He’s a 2- to 3-year-old, 50-lb. bully mix. He’s also lovable, huggable, kissable, and downright adorable! Frisco likes everyone he meets, including other dogs and cats. He can run, jump, play and put a smile on your face! The only thing Frisco can’t do is hear. That’s right, he’s deaf, but don’t let that scare you, because he is amazing!” Meet Frisco: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36749702

From Diego’s Petfinder profile: “Diego is a 1-year-old, neutered shepherd/boxer/pit mix. He weighs 50 lbs. and is up-to-date on all shots. He is very energetic and sometimes pushy, but good with cats and other dogs.” Meet Diego: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/33469602
