Cowboy Capital Pet Assistance League CCPAL: Disaster Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

We used it to repair the plumbing and purchase a new pump to restore water for the rescue.

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

It allowed us to get warm water for cleaning. It also allowed us to get water out of the faucets. During the storm, we had no water and we had to boil snow for drinking and for cleaning. Once the freeze was over we were able to reroute and use the hose outside, but we had no warm water for cleaning. As soon as the plumber was available, they came and repaired our plumbing and it is now working perfectly.

We had a puppy named Ellie who had pneumonia. We had to keep her kennel very clean and give her some very strong medications. She had a severe case, but because of her determination and ours, she made it through the illness.

Having warm, soapy water makes keeping our facility clean easy. It took many more hours when we had to boil and make warm water first. Some things just weren’t as clean during this time.

We are grateful because, just when we thought we could not handle what had happened, we got the email about this much-needed grant. We love you all so very much and cannot thank you enough for all you do for us and for other rescues like us.

This grant couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time. Ellie was special-needs but we found the perfect adopter! Thank you so much; the adopter found her new pup on Petfinder.com and the Petfinder Foundation helped Ellie get through the illness and be adoptable.

Cowboy Capital Pet Assistance League CCPAL: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

We were able to use the money to buy dog food. We normally get donations. However, due to the uncertainty of what was going on, people couldn’t donate as they normally would and the grocery store that sometimes donates didn’t have the ability to donate. We bought a pallet of dog food. This really helped us during an extremely stressful time. We felt we had a friendship with the Petfinder Foundation and people that cared about us. Your organization reached out when no one else would or could. We are honored to be the recipient of this donation. I cannot thank you enough. We were all worried about survival but you made sure we made it. We love you and thank you very very much!!!

Ferdinand came to us a while back, but he got an interested adopter during the pandemic. We were able to save the money by not buying food so we could spend money from his adoption fee to pay for his heartworm treatment. He was turned in by a good Samaritan after the owner moved and left him on the chain. He got his chance for a new home and we were thrilled. We had begun to think he was our sanctuary dog. He is now a wonderful fishing partner and family member in his new home. Thank you all and feel proud that you made a very big difference to us and to the animals in our care!
