Labrador Friends of the South: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

The money went toward three heartworm-treated dogs.

Yes, it was very helpful, since donations are down and adoptions are down, so cash flow is very low.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Meet Mr. Tippy! This cutie is one of the newest members of LFS. He is approximately 5 years old. Tippy was just rescued from a shelter in rural Georia and is happy as can be. He is a sweet, friendly boy who has yet to meet a stranger. He is an energetic dog who would do great with an active family. Tippy could use some work with basic commands and walking on the leash.

Unfortunately, Tippy tested positive for heartworms. He is doing well with treatment so far, though he’s definitely not a fan of having to stay exercise-restricted. Soon Tippy will be free of those pesky worms and able to run around and have normal exercise again. Heartworm staging and treatment are, unfortunately, very costly, and as a smaller rescue, we needed some help to be able to get Tippy the treatment he needed. We are forever thankful for all the support.
