Frankies Furry Friends Rescue, Inc.: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

The donation was used for vet bills.

Every bit of money that comes in helps our furry friends. Currently we have 11 dogs in foster care. The vet expenses for all the dogs can really mount up. We had one dog who had to have enucleation of both eyes and that was very expensive.

How many pets did this grant help?

We put it towards Petey's eye surgery.

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

Petey is a rat terrier who came into rescue very scared of everything. The volunteers worked with him and he gained trust in humans. He was adopted out to a loving home, but the adopter had to work longer hours and was not home with him enough so she thought it best if he came back to his foster home. Once he was back in foster care, it was noticed that his eyes seemed swollen, and he was taken to our vet for a complete eye check-up. He was diagnosed with floating lens and we knew that he had to have his eyes removed. Surgery was scheduled; he did fine through surgery and his recovery has been unremarkable. He is now playing with his foster mom with his favorite toy: a ball that squeaks so it is easier for him to find. He has not been listed on our website yet since he is still adjusting to everything. He will be looking for a special home that can provide all the guidance a blind dog needs.
