Help A Dog Smile: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

Surgery to amputate the leg of a puppy.

The $500 grant for Candace meant the money we would have spent on Candace was then allocated to the medical needs of other rescue dogs -- so we were able to take in additional medical-needs dogs because of the grant money.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Candace, a corgi mix puppy, came to us with a paw and limb that was ulcerated and twisted. Our vet indicated that the limb would need to be amputated as it had a scabbed ulcer and she would probably continue to open the scab as she grew older and heavier. Candace had surgery to remove the limb and has adapted quite well to being a tripod. She has been adopted and her new family adores her.
