The Animal Care Society: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant
What was the money or product used for?

The FVRCP vaccinations are being used to vaccinate our cats and kittens when they are due for their shots.

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

As a non-profit, no-kill shelter, ACS relies heavily on the financial support received from the community to help us succeed in our mission of giving displaced dogs and cats in our community a second chance at finding the love and happiness they so deserve. Without this support, hundreds of dogs and cats would have a very bleak future. With this grant of FVRCP vaccinations, we are able to vaccinate fifty cats and kittens at no cost to us. On behalf of all the dogs and cats who, because of our efforts, are already enjoying their new lives as much-loved pets, as well as the thousands more hoping for a similar future, thank you for your contribution.

How many pets did this grant help?

This grant will help 50 cats or kittens.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Since receiving this generous grant, we have adopted out 24 cats and kittens. We also brought in a very pregnant cat whom we named Tina. The same day that Tina came in to the shelter, she went home with one of our wonderful fosters. Two days later, Tina gave birth to a large litter of 8 kittens. There are 4 boys and 4 girls, named: Tulip, Telulah, Talia, Tilly, Theodore, Thaddeus, Thatcher and Thayer. Because we had your grant of FVRCP vaccinations, Tina has received both of her FVRCP shots, has been spayed, and is now living comfortably at the shelter until she goes to her furever home. She actually has an approved application on her, but because we don't adopt out black cats in October (because of Halloween), she will go home on November 1st. Tina's kittens have received all 3 FVRCP shots and are at the shelter ready for adoption. They are happy, playful, healthy kittens ready to find their furever homes. Thatcher has an application on him and he will hopefully be going home soon. Attached are some pictures of Tina and a few of her kittens. We genuinely appreciate the gift of this grant and for everything the Petfinder Foundation does for the animal community. Thank you.
