Partners for Pets: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The funds collected this quarter were used to help treat Calvin, a dog rescued from St.Clair County (IL) Animal Control, where he had tested positive for heartworm.
In 2016 alone, Partners for Pets has treated over 80 dogs for heartworm. Partners for Pets is one of the only rescues in our area willing to accept heartworm-positive dogs due to the cost of treatment.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
The funds collected this quarter through the Petfinder Foundation were for one specific dog, a dog named Calvin who was rescued from St.Clair County (IL) Animal Control after testing positive for heartworm. Many rescues in our area are unable to rescue heartworm-positive dogs due to the cost of treatment and long holding period the dogs have in a shelter. Calvin went directly into a loving foster home, where he completed five weeks of cage rest and treatment. Once completely healed, Calvin was adopted into a loving forever home.
