Lucky Tales Rescue: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

The money from the grant was used to pay bills for Kimber's hip surgery.

This grant was a huge help in aiding us in helping Kimber. He had very extensive hip surgery and thankfully has made a full recovery. It helped all the pets in our care, as we were able to set this money aside for his bills while still continuing to operate in our normal capacity.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Kimber came to us with double hip dysplasia. Due to this, we elected to have a double pelvic osteotomy surgery performed on both sides of his hips. Unfortunately, Kimber had complications and suffered pelvic fractures on both sides of his hips post-surgery. Due to this, he went in for a second surgery two days later. Again, complications came up, and Kimber suffered from a MRSA-type of infection in his hip implants. Therefore, the decision was made to remove those. While the implants were removed, there was enough time before this for the bone to regrow. Therefore, the hip dysplasia was cured. He has been adopted into his furever home and is doing great!
