Ninna's Road to Rescue: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

For the veterinary care of Lula, a special-needs Affenpinscher.

This grant was specifically for Lula, a special-needs Affenpinscher surrendered to our rescue. She had neurological problems which caused behavioral issues, but it took quite a while before the vet was able to find the issue. Once it was found, the vet was able to then figure out a course of medication and we were better equipped to deal with the behavioral issues and network her to adopters experienced in handling dogs of this nature.

Lula finally found her furever home, as evidenced by the third photo. When we received an application from Dawn and Ian, they were approved to adopt. We made sure they knew everything about Lula before they traveled from Southern Louisiana to meet her. Melva (their light-colored dog) and Lula acted like they had been BFFs for years. Dawn and Ian have adopted dogs with behavior issues before and were willing to give Lula a forever home even though she has her quirks. It was happy ending for one quirky little girl.
