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

In June we received a call from someone who found a dog that she thought had been set on fire. She called Second Chance Dog Rescue for help. We took the dog to our vet to be assessed. She was diagnosed with demodectic mange. So her journey began. We named her Chloe. She was given her shots and flea and tick meds and wormed. She started her first Mitaban dip and bath and her first skin scrape. This regimen continued every two weeks until her spay on Sept. 30, 2016.

On Aug. 27, the precious thing had her first negative skin scrape! That means we will do one more dip, then she’ll be spayed, then she’ll be officially adoptable! We are so very happy and amazed by how quickly this pup has healed. Dr. J said originally that she would be doing scrapes until January. Thank you so much to our loving foster, veterinarian, and the Petfinder Foundation for granting us the money to care for her skin issues! We are so blessed to have the team we do. Of course Chloe wouldn’t stop bugging her sister Maggie long enough to get a face picture (fourth photo).
