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

Monopoly was brought to the shelter as a stray who had been hit by a car. She was unable to walk and was laterally recumbent. The only thing she could move was her tail — and BOY did she move it. She was so happy that the shelter decided to give her a chance to live. When we took her later that week, an x-ray showed a broken neck. The neurologist did a CT scan and it was determined that her biggest issue was a concussion to her cerebellum and that her neck fracture was not displaced and would heal on its own. After several weeks of supportive care, she recovered fully and has been adopted.
