Grant Submission: Caring for Creatures

Posted by Jennifer on July 29th, 2011

We’ve received so many wonderful submissions for the Purina Veterinary Diets® Adopt-a-Pet.com $50,000 Veterinary Care Fund! We were so moved by the amazing lengths rescues and shelters go to give homeless pets a chance at getting healthy so they can be adopted – and thought you would be too! So we’re sharing some of the submissions, and all of the recipients’ stories here on our Shelter Blog. Here’s how a $2,000 grant would (or, in the case of our recipients, WILL) change the life of a pet or pets in their care:

Getting a $2000 grant from Purina would be a life saver, literally, for our four legged friends at Caring for Creatures. Although the ultimate goal of the sanctuary is to place its residents into loving homes, if an animal is not selected for adoption, we offer high quality care (including veterinary care) and companionship for that animal as long as it is needed.  Many of the rescues at Caring for Creatures are special needs dogs and cats that require substantial medical attention.  We take in cats with feline AIDS and feline leukemia just as an example.  Many of the animals rescued at Caring for Creatures require medical attention because they are either ill or injured.  I have attached several photos of before and after pictures as well as “works in progress”.

Please consider Caring for Creatures for the veterinary grant.
