Veterinary expenses for old dogs waiting for homes.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

We had Moe (first photo) for four years. No one wanted him because he didn’t like other dogs. He was 10 years old when he found an awesome home. He came to us because his owner had committed suicide. The local sheriff was going to shoot Moe if we didn’t take him. We take ALL dogs: old, crippled, aggressive, fearful! They ALL get loving homes. We are 100% no-kill except when a dog is suffering.

We also have Taylor (second photo), a 10-year-old German shepherd. He lived in a back yard all his life and had dug a hole for shelter. He has bad hip dysplasia. He is SO affectionate and loving! He is still waiting for a home. Meet Taylor here.
