The KWA awarded The Cannoli Fund a community grant for 2017-2018 that will help fund two programs of our animal welfare group that works in greater King William and Lavaca.
One of the programs is new: SOS: Save Our Strays. Our organization does not rescue stray animals itself, but provides advice, access to resources and financial assistance for neighbors who do. Stray dogs and cats have roamed the streets of King William for decades. In the past, our Cannolicare program, which provides financial assistance for major veterinary care, has supported neighbors rescuing these animals. Although Cannolicare officially provides $400 per animal towards veterinary care, we have often increased that amount to help save strays that suffer from at least one serious and costly medical condition, like heartworm disease.
