Labrador Rescuers: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The $250 grant was used to cover some of the intake vetting costs for a couple of the puppies we rescued at the beginning of the COVID crisis.
The $250 grant helped our rescue provide some of the medical costs to provide two puppy siblings, Bonnie and Clyde, with the help they needed to get healthy enough to be adopted.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Bonnie and her brother Clyde were two young puppies who were left at a shelter in poor health. Bonnie was the skinnier and more sickly one and Clyde was a healthier weight, but not as active as a puppy normally would be. After initial medical exams and treatments, Clyde perked right up and quickly became a high-energy, bouncy puppy who was adopted within a couple of weeks.
Poor little Bonnie did not fair as well, and her medical needs proved to be more than just being underfed and skinny. It turned out she had pancreatic issues that required special enzymes, shots and time in order to stabilize her.
This was a condition Bonnie would have for life, so we had to find just the right foster who would continue to provide all of the medical attention and love that Bonnie would need to thrive and become her wonderful doggy self. Luckily the perfect adopter chose Bonnie to be her new fur baby and has kept up with the medical regimen. Bonnie’s new forever family reports she is doing great and growing into a healthy, happy and spoiled dog, as she deserved.
