Far Fetched Dog Rescue: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

The funds from this grant were used for several tumor removals for our 7-year-old basset hound, Franklin.

This grant was able to pay for the surgery necessary to allow Franklin to live a normal, happy life.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

This grant was used to provide surgery for Franklin. There aren’t many words to describe what kind of a life Franklin has likely had, but we do know that he had spent many years as a victim of neglect. He was covered in masses, one of which was so heavy and infected, that we needed to have it removed immediately. Several masses were very large and made it difficult for Franklin to even walk. We were able to have these masses removed and tested for cancer. Although one did come back malignant, we were able to find a family who will love him for the rest of his days.

Franklin has found a home to spend forever, no matter how much time he has left. Franklin was in horrendous shape when he came to us, but we all believed he deserved a chance. Franklin is right at home with his new forever foster family, and it’s like he’s lived there his whole life! We couldn’t be happier for this little guy and we are so glad we took the chance for him!!
