How many pets did this grant help?


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

Short Tail (who actually has a long tail!) came into the shelter as a stray with her littermates after being found by a lawn-maintenance worker under some bushes. The litter was lovingly raised in foster care to get ready for adoption. Short Tail suffered from shaky rear legs and for a while we thought she was just scared with new situations. When her situation continued, it was decided to have an x-ray done to see if there was something medically that needed to be taken care of. We used the money from the Petfinder Sponsor a Pet Program to have the x-ray done. We are happy to report that Short Tail did not have anything major wrong with her and the day after her x-ray she was adopted into a wonderful family that promised to follow up with her vet care and make sure she had the best life possible, shaky legs and all! Thank you for your continued support and generosity!
