Shinju, a little senior Yorkie, came to us from Animal Control with infection pouring out of her ears. She was horribly matted and had stinky/yeasty skin, dental disease, infections in her eyes, etc. She is still under veterinary care and our care, so she has not been adopted, but the photos show her before and after. You can meet Shinju here.

Humane Society of Charles County: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

The money from these grants were adoption sponsorships and helped some of the dogs get adopted earlier. One of the dogs is still not adopted, but is in foster care; we are using her sponsorship money to get her some training and a behavioral evaluation to be more adoptable.

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Whenever a pet can be sponsored, we can usually get them into forever homes more easily. The sponsorship allows us to provide care for the animals still in need of adoption by helping to pay for food and supplies that are much needed.

Sugar-face Sassy (first four photos) is a sweet old gal who was surrendered by a family who no longer wanted her. When she first came to HSCC on June 27, 2020, she was in need of basic vet care, vaccinations, and grooming. She was extremely nervous and reluctant to interact with staff, play, or exercise.

Patience and perseverance prevailed and she became a very friendly and affectionate pooch. HSCC provided her with vaccinations and preventative treatments, got her cleaned up and had her shockingly long nails trimmed.

On July 18, she found her forever home. Her new family renamed her Lady and have been giving her lots of love, exercise, and proper nutrition and grooming. They report that her once-dull coat is now soft and shiny and that, despite her age, she is a ball of energy who loves to play at the park. She is a “super cuddler” and loves naps under the blankets. Aside from her new family, she is especially fond of her stuffed toys and tennis ball.

River (fifth photo) is very nervous in the kennel and takes a minute to warm up. Once outside the shelter, however, she is outgoing, curious, and affectionate, but needs a proper introduction. She is strong on the leash so she would benefit from learning some manners and would be a GREAT RUNNING BUDDY. She is a very pretty girl with a bit of an independent streak, but does enjoy a good scratch and a belly rub. She may repay you with a big kiss! She would do best in a home without children or other pets. River is not adopted yet. She is still living with a foster family. You can meet River here.

It will help these dogs find good homes. Danté (first photo) came from a humane society in West Virginia. He has been in the shelter for four years. He is a feist, and most people have never heard of that breed. He is very sweet and friendly to me, but he is nervous around other people, especially men. He has been happy in my home even though no one is interested in adopting him at this time. We look forward to Danté finding a forever home soon. It would help if I had a behaviorist to work with dogs such as Danté so they become better socialized. You can meet Danté here.

This grant helped defray the cost of a CT scan for a rescue puppy named Sammy. Sammy was a precious male Maltipoo puppy about 4-5 months old. He was found abandoned and in critically poor health by a good citizen. They brought him to us for intake into our program. Sammy had a preliminary diagnosis of a congenital liver shunt. The scan greatly enhanced Sammy’s treatment, which was eventually successful. Sammy was recently adopted and is in a loving home.

Bonnie (first photo) and Clyde (second photo) have been long-term residents of our shelter and have benefited from donation funds to help place them in foster while they wait to be adopted.

From their Petfinder profile: “Bonnie and Clyde are very bonded and have behavior issues when separated. Clyde is an extreme escape artist and Bonnie gets shy with new people and new situations. They have been adopted out and brought back. They have been in a foster home and are now back at the shelter awaiting a final, appropriate, home. They will need an experienced adopter and the most secure of yards. Adopters will be considered carefully for these two, as they are not easy and will require extra-special attention as well as living arrangements. Please do not apply if you are looking for easygoing dogs — THEY ARE NOT! They are, however, loving, affectionate, smart and wonderful.”

Stevie, a rescued toy poodle, presented with pain and a severe limp. Based on an examination and X-ray imaging, our veterinarian diagnosed a fractured left front leg and indicated the need for specialist intervention. A canine orthopedic surgeon repaired Stevie’s broken leg and provided an excellent prognosis. He has since made a full recovery and been adopted, and is now in a loving home.

Lily came into a local shelter on Feb. 14, 2019. She was pregnant, and gave birth to three pups at the shelter on Feb. 19. The shelter contacted us about fostering her, and one of our foster moms picked her up and brought her home on Feb. 23. The pups were four days old. We cared for Lily and her puppies for several months, until the pups were ready for their spay/neuter surgeries. The pups found their forever homes quickly after that, but we have not yet found a home for Lily. We love her and will care for her until we find the best family for her.
