Boston Buddies, Inc.: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

The money was used to pay for vet expenses associated with the sponsored pets.

Lily, one of the sponsored pets, is having surgery today to construct an anus (she was born without an anus). Hercules, another of the sponsored pets, is in foster care waiting to have surgery to repair his deformed front legs; the orthopedic surgeon wanted us to wait until Hercules had grown more, as he is only 1 year old and the surgery will be cutting through growth plates. Hercules seems to have plateaued in weight, so we will be scheduling him for surgery.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Hercules came into rescue at the shelter with deformed front legs and a ruptured eye. Boston Buddies took him right away. Hercules has been neutered and had his eye removed. We have been waiting for Hercules to stop growing so the doctors can straighten his front legs and fuse his paws. Hercules is a happy boy who has not let his disabilities affect his life. It is because of our generous donors that Boston Buddies is able to step forward to help dogs like Hercules. Meet Hercules:
