The money was used to cover vet bills and aftercare for a special dog named Mariah. She had a large hernia and was going to be euthanized at another shelter. We pulled her just in time and, thanks to the Emergency Medical Grant, we were able to save her.
The grant paid for surgery for one dog, and now we are able to use the money we would have spent saving another dog or cat who needs us.
Mariah was a senior dog at [an open-admission] shelter who had all the odds against her. Due to a large hernia, she was set to be euthanized. A volunteer saw a post by another volunteer at that shelter pleading for someone to help Mariah. She wrote about how much she deserved to live, how sweet she was and begged for help for her. We responded and quickly pulled her from the shelter. She had a large hernia that had to be fixed. Thanks to the Emergency Medical Grant from the Petfinder Foundation, she had surgery and is now healthy and ready for a forever home! Meet Mariah here.
