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

Mickey was a recently rescued 8-year-old dog who was blind. Once he was in the care of SGRR, it was determined that Mickey was living with severe pain from his eyes. For Mickey to live a pain-free life, he would need to undergo enucleation surgery. Because of the generosity of a Petfinder Foundation grant, Mickey received that surgery and is now living with his bonded brother in an adoptive home. A very special family was found for Mickey and Magic. Thank you, Petfinder Foundation!
