How many pets did this grant help?


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

When a member of the community saw a stray cat with a prolapsed colon she reached out to numerous rescues for help. Only St. Francis Society answered her call for help. We immediately dispatched a volunteer to get the cat and rushed her to a veterinarian. Leipshin was rushed into emergency surgery and, fortunately, recovered quickly. However, it was discovered that, in addition to a prolapsed colon, she also suffered from terrible cases of lice, ringworm and scabies. It took her a couple of months to heal from all of her skin issues, but we are happy to report that she was adopted this weekend into a loving home!
