Q&A with K4C Microgrant Recipient Jarod


Karma for Cara Microgrants help fund exceptional projects led by youth 18 and under to help complete service projects in their communities. Read about our micro grant recipient Jarod Heuer, a 15 year old who volunteers with Cause for Paws. 

1. How did you become involved with Cause for Paws?

I love animals so much that I called Nancy Moore (president of Cause for Paws) and see if she needed any help, and she said yes.

2. Why is your work important to you?

It is important because I can get to the rank of Eagle in Boy Scouts as well as moving Causefor Paws to help the animals in need.

3. How did the money from the microgrant help with your project?

The total cost was almost $3,000 to renovate a new space that would be suitable for the animals. The microgrant helped to pay for the dry wall labor which cost $750.

4. What message of giving back do you have for others?

That every animal who is looking for a home deserves a chance to have one. To all our furry friends, I hope you all find your forever and loving homes. For all the pet owners and other people who love animals, open your hearts and open your homes.
