Casa del Toro Pit Bull Rescue: Dogly Do Good Grant Report

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

We used our Dogly grant monies to pay towards Lenny's heartworm treatment.

We rescued Lenny from the Indianapolis shelter and he was heartworm-positive. This grant helped us start Lenny's heartworm treatment immediately instead of waiting to begin treatment until we had the funds available.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Lenny came into the Indianapolis shelter as a stray. He was severely injured, possibly from a dog fight, and was heartworm-positive. Our rescue pulled Lenny because he was considered unadoptable at the shelter. Lenny is about two months into his eight-month heartworm treatment and still has a long way to go to be fully healthy and adoptable. The receipt of our Dogly grant monies ensured that we could save Lenny, start his heartworm treatment and have time to fundraise in order to raise the additional $500 his treatment cost.
