How many pets did this grant help?


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

We saved Roscoe from San Bernardino City Animal Control on Dec. 16, 2014. He was confiscated by Animal Control because the person he was left in the care of for dog sitting was arrested. Turns out that the dog sitter was the brother of his owner but the owner never came to claim him. We pulled him on his review date. When we got him out, it was clear that he couldn’t breathe well, so we took him directly to the vet, where he was diagnosed with pneumonia and we started daily nebulizers for seven days and antibiotics. After that cleared up, he was neutered and ready for adoption. He was adopted to a lovely couple on Jan. 13, 2015 and they adore him!
