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

Cher (first photo) was one of a litter of unweaned kittens with severe eye infections found outside an auto body shop in Merced, CA. One was adopted by the shop owners, and Cher came to us, followed a few days later by her sister, Sunny. Sunny had eye infections also, and required treatment as well as bottle feeding, but Cher had to have her eyes removed. Totally blind, she is a happy, snuggly kitty who loves to play with toys. She and her sister are now looking for their forever home, hopefully together.

Bruce (second and third photos) is a dog whose foster mom calls him “awesome and sweet.” His owner was a murder victim, and Bruce was left behind and on his own. A neighbor took pity on him and brought Bruce to our rescue, where it was immediately apparent that something was terribly wrong with one of his front legs. The vet determined that Bruce’s inability to use that leg was due to spinal nerve damage, origin unknown, and the leg had to be amputated. He is a friendly and fun-loving guy, waiting for someone to take him home forever. Meet Bruce:
