Washington Wilkes Animal Shelter: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

The donation was made through Sponsor a Pet for a dog named Shelby. Shelby is a black and tan coonhound who came to the shelter in January 2019 with mange on her face. The donation was used to cover her vet bills for mange treatment.

This money helped with the vet bill for the dog, who has had several treatments to help clear her skin. Our vet bill runs high and this donation helped us with that burden.

How many pets did this grant help?

One: Shelby

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

Shelby came to the shelter on Jan. 12, 2019, as an owner-surrender. Her owners surrendered her because she only tracks and trees the prey, but will not stay with the prey. At the time of arrival, she presented with mange on her face. She is a 3-year-old black and tan coonhound who is very sweet and friendly. There is an interested party, but they are waiting to see what happens with her mange. Shelby is still available for adoption. Meet Shelby here.
