Kibblez of Love: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Veterinary bills toward basic medical care, including spay and neuter for adoptable animals. Preventative medicine for general health, including heartworm and flea/tick meds.
We were able to spay and neuter 3 dogs awaiting their forever homes which included their vaccinations and preventatives for heartworm and flea/tick meds. The grant provided preventatives for our homeless animals in our care. The grant helped with one of our Heartworm positive dogs who was about to go into her forever home awaiting treatment. Her last treatment consisted of an overnight stay at vet in addition to a two day treatment of meds.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
JoJo (first photo) was able to receive her last treatment of heartworm care thanks to this grant. Upon her completion of medical treatment, she went to her forever home. Tom, a schnauzer mix (second and third photos), was fortunate to be rescued from a known dumping area of dogs in South Florida. Thanks to this grant, he received the medical care needed to get back into good health, receive his neuter and vaccinations, and was lucky to find an amazing forever home. Brooklyn, an English Bulldog (fourth photo), was confiscated by Animal Care and Control from a neglectful owner. We rescued her from ACC and, once her health was restored from a staph infection, she was able to be spayed and received her vaccinations and preventatives. Brooklyn found an amazing home. All of these animals and more who are not listed received the care they needed thanks to The Petfinder Foundation and the Orvis grant.
