Sunshine's Friends Is Awarded A Maryland Department of Agriculture Grant

0012

In 2017, we were fortunate to receive the following grants that support our operations and goals: 

md dept agro300x300pxMaryland Department of Agriculture Grants

We applied for and received two grants from the Maryland Department of Agriculture under their Spay and Neuter Grants Program.  Both grants provide funding during the period from 01 October 2017 to 30 September 2018:

  1. Sunshine's Freinds Pet Project:  This Department of Agriculture grant provided us with funding to spay and/or neuter pets belonging to residents of Jessup, Elkridge, and Severn, MD.  It covers the costs for the operations plus rabies and distemper shots for 130 pet cats and 30 pet dogs.  We are also offering to safely transport the animals to and from the vet for residents who cannot do it themselves due to work schedules, health issues, or lack of transportation. We teamed with Spay Now in Laurel, MD to perform the operations, and they are also offering reduced cost shots and parasite treatment while the pets are there.
  1. Sunshine's Friends Community Cat Project: This Department of Agriculture grant provided us with funding to spay or neuter colony cats living in the local communities.  We targeted 130 cats living in Jessup, Hanover, and Severn for trap, neuter, and return (TNR).  They will be spayed/neutered and receive rabies and distemper shots at Spay Now  Any kittens and non-feral cats will be rehomed through adoption and some cats will be relocated through our Bar Cat placement program.  The rest will be returned to the original location where identified caregivers provide them food and watch out for their well-being.  By stopping the reproduction cycle, the number of cats at these colonies will be stabilized and intake and euthanasia rates at local animal shelters should be reduced.

Meet our Super Sweet Senior of the Week.

Pebbles is 12 years young and would love to be someones, special girl. She will be happiest as an only cat child but is great with human children. Pebbles is in good health and always uses her litter pan.

We were blessed to have Bev take such good care of Amore whom we found in a field 3 month ago alone and scared. Today we are so happy to welcome our newest addition to the family
