How many pets did this grant help?


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

Oreo was picked up as a stray and taken to a small, rural shelter where he had little hope of finding rescue. Oreo was heavy heartworm-positive and had entropion in both eyes, to the point where he could hardly see and his eyes were painful. We teamed up with a sponsor for his eyes to be fixed and the Petfinder Foundation grant helped us treat his heartworms.

Oreo was adopted by a loving family with children who just adore him.
