Bryant Animal Control & Adoption Center: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

Veterinary care to amputate a leg after a pet was found hit by a car.

This allowed us to save another life! Without this money, would not have been able to provide the surgery that Brooke the dog so desperately needed, and she would have been euthanized if we had not received these sponsorships.

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Brooke is an adult golden retriever mix who was found after she had been hit by a car on a busy street. A police officer brought her to the shelter, and it was found that she had a severe luxation of her left foreleg and needed surgery. We had just received the Sponsor a Pet grant from the Petfinder Foundation, and we used that money as the jumping-off point to fundraise to get the care Brooke needed. We raised the remainder of the funds needed to pay for her surgery, but she had some complications and had to be hospitalized for several days. We began a new fundraising effort, collecting the rest of the money needed in less than 24 hours. Brooke has now been adopted and loves her new home! Her family reports that she is getting around fine and acts as though she’s always had three legs!
