K9 Paw Print Rescue: Dogly Do Good Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
This money went towards the veterinary bills for our medical dogs. These dogs are in need of medical care beyond the routine vaccinations, spay/neuter, kennel-cough treatment, etc.
K9PPR strives to rescue as many dogs in need of extra medical care as possible. We are known for pulling abuse cases, parvo pups, dogs in need of surgeries and those with many other conditions. Many of these dogs are overlooked at the shelters due to the projected expense of their care. We believe that medical dogs deserve a chance at life and a fresh start, and this grant boosted our continuously-depleted medical fund, allowing us take on more medical dogs.
How many pets did this grant help?
We were able to help five dogs with this grant!
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Coco/Mistletoe is an adorable senior bichon/poodle mix who was dumped at the shelter at age 14 by her owner. The reason given: “Illness.” She was suffering from a severe bronchial infection, collapsing trachea, dislocated hip and was desperately overweight. Her condition was extremely dire and her cough was unbearable to hear. She was scheduled to be put to sleep the day we pulled her and we were able to save her in the nick of time. Her condition was completely treatable with extensive rounds of antibiotic therapy, bronchodilators, physical therapy and the loving care of her foster family. We are happy to report that Coco was adopted by a wonderful family and relative of one of our coordinators and is now completely spoiled and loved.
