This money was used to help cover the costs of the surgeries for two dogs who urgently needed our help.
The rescue’s largest expenses are spay and neuter surgeries, and when other medical needs arise that only adds to the depletion of the rescue funds. This grant made it possible to help two dogs who needed other special need surgeries and in turn, both dogs were adopted to happy homes.
The two dogs who were helped are named Sophie and Ajax. Sophie (first and second photos) is an approximately 2-year-old husky mix who came to Halfway to Home after being the victim of horrible abuse, most clearly reflected in a very infected eye. Her eye was removed and she healed nicely. She has a lot of behaviors associated with being abused, but her new family absolutely adores her and she is getting more comfortable in her new home every day. She was adopted a few weeks after her surgery.
Ajax is an approximately 2-year-old border collie who was found at the side of the road after having been hit by a car. He required surgery for a dislocated hip. He required rehab to walk again. He was adopted a month after his surgery.
