The Pepper Foundation: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

The funds were used to help a little 1-year-old Spaniel mix named Harley who came out of the shelter with pneumonia.

The grant was used for Harley's emergency medicals and has helped him completely heal from his pneumonia. He is now in a foster home and they are very much in love with him and are seriously considering adopting him.

How many pets did this grant help?

It helped one doggie.

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

We were at the Lancaster shelter looking at another doggie when we noticed this little guy jumping up and down trying to get out of the run. He had so much life in him, but at the time we could not take another doggie. Days went by and we thought for sure since he was so cute and young he would have gotten adopted. But he did not and they were going to euthanize him, so of course we rescued him and gave him the name Harley. We noticed that after they neutered him, he began to cough non-stop and had a hard time breathing. We rushed him to our vet, where he was diagnosed with pneumonia. It was touch-and-go for five days, but he pulled through and is now the happiest, most fun-loving, adorable, tail-wagging doggie! We are so grateful for your emergency grant to help Harley and could not have done this without your help. Thank you so much, Petfinder Foundation! Harley says thank you also! xoxox
