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

Bennie arrived emaciated and fading from a rural high[-intake] shelter. He had already been diagnosed with cerebellar hypoplasia, but we didn’t know he had been kept in a crate, where he was wasting away. He also had an injury to one of his eyes. We rushed him to the vet the same night he arrived on transport and the Petfinder Foundation grant helped us to get him the supportive care he needed. At 4 months, he was less than 2 lbs. Now he is energetic, loving and headed to a new home!
