Humane Society of Tuolumne County: Grant Opportunities from the Petfinder Foundation Grant Report

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

We received a $1000 grant and used it for medical emergencies over and above our normal spay and neuter charges from our veterinarians.

We were able to get several animals help with ear, bladder, and upper respiratory infections.
We want to thank PetFinder for this much needed $1000. As you can see below, it was put to good use.

Sam was 2-1/2 year old Border Collie/Spaniel mix and was surrendered to us in May of 2014. Being a Spaniel, they are prone to ear infections and Sam had a very serious one. He was taken to the veterinarian and examined and put on antibiotic ear drops, prednisone, and Fluconazole and was seen at the vet each week lavage time was from May 28 through June 27, 2014 and the cost was $630.17. He is now in a loving and wonderful home and his ear infection is gone.
