Arizona Desert Rotti & Pals Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

This grant money was used to pay for a cherry-eye surgery for a female Boston terrier pup named Zayde.

This grant allowed us to take in a couple of extra dogs, as it paid for the entire cost of Zayde's eye surgery.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Zayde is a beautiful purebred little girl, but her former owner had returned her to her original home because her cherry eye had come back twice. They felt this was a defect somehow.

We had it properly removed, and she was immediately adopted by a lovely woman named Suzanne from San Diego. She had to wait a week for Zayde’s eye to heal a little, and all in all it was probably a month before she could fetch Zayde. She was patient.

We liked Suzanne so much that we drove to meet her in Yuma so her round-trip drive with Zayde would not be so long.

Suzanne decided to rename Zayde. She is now Tallulah. She has a sister doggy friend named Zoe. Her new owner takes wonderful care of her. They are all happy and stay in touch with us. See photos at her new home.

Suzanne works from home. We know Tallulah will get lots of good care, attention and love, which is all that we pray for for our dog babies. Thank you so much for your help.
