Medical emergency funds
When we rescued Hooch from [an open-admission] facility, he had a badly injured, neglected leg and he was also heartworm-positive. With the receipt of the $500 medical grant, we were able to get Hooch the immediate medical care he needed. The leg could not be saved and had to be amputated. Hooch had already gotten accustomed to walking on three legs and he took easily to the amputation.
