Second Chance Dog Rescue of Iowa: Petfinder Adoption Options in Action Grant (Invitation Only)
What was the money or product used for?

The $1,000 grant was used to pay for treatment for Iva's hip dysplasia. She had a femoral-head osteotomy. She is healing nicely and has her last check up on Feb. 15, 2018. At that point she will be ready for her forever home.

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

We have had several dogs who needed surgeries in the last couple of months, so money is very tight. We could not have done this without help.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

This grant helped Iva, who was originally a stray. When she was found, she was starving, dehydrated and very pregnant. It was then discovered that she also suffered from hip dysplasia. Once Iva had her puppies and weaned them, we focused on getting her the medical care she needed. We got Iva into a temporary home where we felt she could recover nicely. She is doing great and will soon be ready to be placed in an adoptive home.
