Houndhaven, Inc.: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

The money was used to help our darling Newman fight heartworms.

The donation helped us treat for heartworms. It paid for nearly half the cost, allowing us to focus on other medical issues Newman was facing.

Houndhaven went to look at dogs at Animal Control and we met Newman, who was scheduled for euthanasia. The helper said it was a mistake that he was even in the adoptables building and couldn’t explain how he got there. We believe that God placed him there for us to see because this sweetheart did not deserve to die. He had been seized from his owner because a neighbor reported that they were starving him to death. We agree, as this poor boy was down to 48 pounds when we got him. He was also missing a lot of hair and very itchy with mange and had heartworms. After some healing and lots of TLC, Newman became the new man we promised him he would become.

Newman finally found a home where he can have all the rubber chickens he wants! He is the only dog, and the cats couldn’t care less about sharing his toys! Mom said Newman may need to put squeaky toys away before bedtime so that she and the cats can get some sleep, but other than that he will get to enjoy them to his heart’s content. Newman will also get to go for walks around the community with his new mom and get to go to the woodshop where she makes projects. Apparently there are a lot of dog-loving guys at the woodshop who will get a kick out of Newman, and Newman will get to hang out with the guys. All in all, it sounds like Newman has finally found the perfect home! Better late than never, Newmie!!
