Miami Pet Assistance Coalition: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

Veterinary care for a dog we found with an embedded collar.

We are a community-outreach group that focuses on getting low-income pet owners' dogs and cats spayed/neutered and vaccinated, but we often wind up doing emergency rescues and/or funding other veterinary expenses.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Bobby is a young dog who lived neglected and covered with fleas in a dirty backyard. When MPAC picked him up to be neutered and vaccinated, we found he had an embedded collar that cut into his neck! The wound was filthy and infected. We immediately removed the collar and sought veterinary care. He is now healed and living with one of our loving fosters, waiting for the right home.
