Companion Pet Rescue & Transport of W. TN: Emergency Medical Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

This grant was use to pay the vet bill for a dog who'd been rescued and needed some extended medical care.

This grant was used to pay the vet bill for a dog who was rescued back in March. He needed to have his hind leg amputated and undergo heartworm treatment and cherry-eye surgery before he could be adopted.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Chubbers was rescued after his owner passed away. He had a badly broken leg that was never treated and did not heal correctly. This resulted in the leg needing to be amputated for him to have a better and more comfortable life. He also had a cherry eye that needed to be addressed with surgery, and he tested positive for heartworm that needed to be treated. Once we’d addressed his medical needs, Chubbers was placed for adoption and has since found his loving forever home!

I’ve included some photos of the day he was first rescued (first photo), post-surgery (second photo) and then the happy ones are from his adopter!
