How many pets did this grant help?


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

Max is a 17-year-old French bulldog who found himself needing rescue in a local [open-intake] shelter when his elderly owner was admitted to the hospital and subsequent long-term rehab. Max was taken to our private veterinarian upon release from the local shelter and was found to have a very large oral tumor that was affecting his ability to eat food. The large tumor was removed during emergency surgery, which resulted in Max being able to eat comfortably again. He is now placed in a hospice foster home where he is being spoiled daily and even has a rescue fursister, Foxy, to go on daily walks with. Thank you, Petfinder Foundation, for helping our rescue with the grant to help Max.
