Bishop's Small Dog Rescue, Inc. NFP: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

This grant was awarded for Webster. He came in emaciated, with an older injury to his right front leg. He had to undergo a very expensive plating surgery once he was done growing, as he was a pup when he arrived here and, due to the location and extent of his injury (which was along growth plates), we had to wait.

This grant made it possible for Webster to receive the surgery he needed to no longer hurt and be a "normal" bionic dog!

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Webster came in emaciated after being forgotten. He had been living in an outdoor run on a farm with weeds taller than the 6-ft. fencing he was in. A friend and her boyfriend happened upon him and immediately called us to help him. He was so malnourished that he was walking on his knees and elbows, but he also had a very bad injury to his right front leg that needed some advanced surgery to replace a portion of it once he was full grown. Webster got his surgery and was adopted not long afterwards, and we still see him occasionally.
