North Richland Hills Animal Adoption & Rescue Center: A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant
We were provided vaccines for dogs and cats. These items were used to vaccinate the adoptable animals at intake to help curtail disease in the shelter. If the pet was of age for the booster and was adoptable, staff vaccinated them at intake.
This grant has helped us be able to start our vaccination at intake policy and the animals are healthier for it. Instead of waiting days or weeks for a pet to get selected for adoption and then vaccinating them, vaccinating at intake has helped especially the young ones stay health enough to be adopted.
50 dogs and 11 cats
Gia is a little female lab mix puppy that came to the shelter as a stray. With the vaccines that were provided, we were able to vaccinate her at intake thus increasing her chances of staying healthy and adoptable. Gia found a home with a college student and they love each other to pieces. One of the attached photos of Gia graduating puppy school.
