Hank was transferred into our shelter from a small shelter in Iowa. They were having trouble getting him adopted because they could not afford the eye surgery Hank needed.

With the Petfinder Foundation grant covering microchips and rabies vaccinations for 39 dogs, we were able to free up funds so Hank could get his needed eye surgery. Hank was adopted to a wonderful family and is living his best life now!
