How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
ID #A174118 was a stray who was brought into our shelter with a bandage on his left front paw. Upon removal of the bandage, it was observed that he had a large open wound. We transported him to Feather River Veterinary Hospital, where Dr. Matt Tucker x-rayed the leg and determined that it was not broken, but the cat was suffering from nerve damage from an old injury. We were given medications to treat the wound. After his leg began improving, a local feline rescue contacted us and wanted to take him into their rescue to continue his recovery. A few weeks later, they reported back to us that he had been adopted and was doing well in his new home.
