Pits R Us All-Breed Rescue & Adoptions: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

The funds received were applied directly to an emergency vet bill and hospitalization for a puppy named Baby Pop Tart, who was lethargic, not eating and dehydrated. The vets diagnosed his tiny, 1.5-lb. body with a liver shunt that was inoperable.

The funds helped financially cover the cost of the three-day hospital stay and diagnosis while the vet staff tried to stabilize him in hopes of being able to perform surgery to correct the shunt. Unfortunately, their lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful, and he crossed the Rainbow Bridge peacefully.

Baby Pop Tart’s life was cut short by an inoperable liver shunt. He was only 1.5 lbs and not stable enough to undergo surgery. He was loved for his short time here with us, and will always have a part of our hearts.
