Red Clay Animal Rescue: Emergency Medical Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Annabeth is a stray dog who was found by the side of the road, badly injured. A good Samaritan brought her to the veterinary ER. She had two major surgeries: a plate and wire to fix her broken mandible and a left forelimb amputation due to nerve damage sustained in her accident. The bill for her surgeries and hospitalization was $6,053.26.
This grant will put a sizeable dent in my bill for Annabeth's care. Sometimes it is scary for a small rescue like mine to take on an animal that is this injured -- her bill was a pretty substantial portion of my yearly operating budget. But it was worth it, of course!

Annabeth is a stray dog who was found badly injured by the side of the road. A good Samaritan brought her to the veterinary ER, bloodied and unable to walk. She’d sustained a fractured jaw and had severe nerve damage to her left front leg, which ultimately had to be amputated.
Through all of this, Annabeth was the sweetest, most loving dog and always seemed so grateful for the care she was receiving. My rescue took in Annabeth on Aug. 17, 2021, and she was adopted on Sept. 9, 2021, the day her stitches came out.
