Seminole County Animal Services: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We are not funded for heartworm treatment, so the funds were used to purchase heartworm treatment for the dogs that were heartworm-positive, as well as to pay for their spay and neuter surgery prior to treatment because we are not funded for spay/neuter surgeries either.
We were ale to pay for heartworm treatments and spay or neuter surgery for a couple dogs, which made them adoptable and able to be adopted and put into their fur-ever homes.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Floyd (first photo), a 2-year-old terrier mix, came into the shelter with an embedded collar, plus he was heartworm-positive and intact. He was sent to the vet, where the collar was surgically removed and he received stitches to close the wound. He was also neutered and returned to the shelter. Shortly after his neuter, he was treated for heartworms. After a successful recovery from everything the poor guy had to endure, he was adopted into his fur-ever home.
Remy (second photo) was a mix who came in with severe hair loss. She spent time here at the shelter growing her hair back and under vet care. She finally became presentable and able to be shown. She was quickly snapped up and is now in a loving home.
