How many pets did this grant help?


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

Maggie had surgery for an ileus [intestinal] blockage. The surgery cost $1,797.13, which was way in excess of what we could afford. Maggie had come to us about a week earlier with a litter of 10 puppies in tow and developed the condition. We hand-fed the babies and the surgery was required to save her life. The surgery was 100% successful and Maggie and her puppies have been adopted.
