Community Animal Welfare Society(CAWS): A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant
What was the money or product used for?

The product was used to vaccinate animals coming into our adoptions programs from local shelters.

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

The grant has benefited many animals by protecting them from communicable diseases and allowing them to safely attend adoption events and find new homes. From an organizational standpoint, the savings has allowed us to put the money usually spent on rescuing more sick animals and animals that have gotten URI's from being in the shelter environment.

How many pets did this grant help?

50 cats and 25 dogs.

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

Shiva was found abandoned behind a local pet store. On the surface, this may not seem unusual, but she was left in a plastic container on a hot summer's day, with her 6 babies. Shiva is only a baby herself, estimated at about 10 months old. Due to her condition, she was tested for FIV/FeLV, and vaccinated with vaccines used from the grant. After a hospital stay to monitor her condition, she is now in a loving foster home just waiting to be adopted.
