Ayla's Acres No-Kill Animal Rescue, Inc.: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

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

We used this money to help pay for surgery and vetting on three dogs.

These dogs were all in very bad shape when we found them. This money enabled us to pay for surgery, neutering and heartworm treatment on all three. One of the dogs was adopted. A second one is in foster care with a family who is seriously considering adopting him. The third is still in our constant care while she recovers from her abandonment situation.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Miles is a black Lab/chow mix. He was found wandering the road in a rural part of St Augustine. We were called. We assessed the dog. He had a huge lump on his side. We took the boy, named him Miles and took him to the vet. The vet determined that Miles is approximately 7 years old. He was given his vaccines, tested positive for heartworm and had the lump aspirated. The lump was a mast-cell tumor. Miles was started on heartworm treatment, neutered and had the mast-cell tumor removed. Miles is recovering at his foster home. They have a 6-year-old chow mix. They are considering adopting Miles.
