Pitt County Animal Services: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

All of these funds were spent on veterinarian bills. Beginning on March 16, we began getting all shelter animals into foster homes and, as we had to take in new animals, continued placing them with fosters.

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

It assisted us in being able to place animals who came into our care and custody into foster homes by being able to treat medical conditions instead of euthanizing them simply due to lack of funds to treat and care for them. We are happy to report that all animals treated and placed with fosters were able to be adopted.

How many pets did this grant help?

Six dogs and several kittens

Two puppies came in with severe mange. We were able to begin starting their treatment and successfully adopted them into homes! Without this grant and being able to begin treatment, the puppies would have been very uncomfortable and would have deteriorated and been harder to place into homes.

Princess came in with a terrible eye issue. We had her evaluated by a vet, who determined the eye needed to be removed, and a surgery date was set. She was placed in a foster home. In between the days waiting for surgery, the eye ruptured and emergency surgery was performed. Since then, Princess has thrived and the foster family fell in love and adopted her. She is truly living a life of luxury now and even has her own Instagram page!
