Pitter Patter Animal Rescue Inc would like to thank you for this opportunity to apply for the Veterinary Care Fund. The Veterinary Care Fund grant would change the life for all the pets in this rescue. Besides the additonal vet care that is needed including vaccinations and treatments for illiness, funds are needed for additional emergency situations.
Pitter Patter Animal Rescue Inc., is a 501c3, no-kill, foster based, no breed specific animal rescue. We are people working together to make a difference, to focus on saving animals that are in danger of being euthanized. Our goal is to ensure that every animal is treated with the humane treatment and care. We strive to educate our communities on the importance of neutering and spaying their pets to solve the pet overpopulation problem. PPAR works to rescue and save the far too many animals that are being put to death every day. The rescue is all volunteers, and no individual is paid. PPAR relies solely on donations and adoption fees to keep PPAR functioning. No matter how big or small we love them all. Our motto is that no momma will be left behind.
Pitter Patter Animal Rescue rescued Henrietta at only a few weeks old that was found frozen to water pipes on a farm in the below zero weather. A sweet little baby girl just trying to stay warm. She was close to death. All her limbs were attached in one way or another to this pipe! A wonderful guardian angel thought nothing and started cupping water from a water trough to free this little baby. She succeeded but not without consequence… Her rear paw was dying and non responsive. She needed surgery immediately. Henrietta did loose one of her rear hind legs. She has a few scar marks on areas of her limbs from frost bite. After her surgery she needed some TLC and had to have quiet time in order for the area to heal correctly. A few weeks later she started her rehab. Henrietta is a one of a kind kitten. She enjoys life and it shows. She comes when you call her name, she gives tons of kisses, and just loves everyone. Pitter Patter taken in those who are injured ill or disabled and provides care that would normally be turned away or put down by other shelters or rescue groups.
Caring for bottle babies. ( K-9 and feline ) Pitter Patter Animal Rescue has experienced volunteers who taken in and care for bottle babies being as young as one day old. This is a 24 hour full time job. Momma was saved from a high kill (heart stick) shelter. She was not able to nurse her young and they all had to be bottle fed. Pitter Patter Animal Rescue Inc., takes pride in that no Momma is left behind. The babies also need extra vet care which is additional cost.
We are grateful for your consideration. Any assistance would be appreciated to offset their veterinary costs and save more homeless pets’ lives.
