West Feliciana Animal Humane Society: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

Hip surgery for Delilah and heartworm treatment and nostril enlargement for Donner.

Delilah has been with us for almost two years. She has been in pain and walks with a limp. This surgery will help her finally get her forever home. Donner has had potential adopters ask about him. He has multiple medical issues and no one is willing to adopt him until the issues are corrected. With the help of the Petfinder Foundation, we have helped these two dogs get healthy. They will be listed as ready for adoption.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Delilah (first photo) came to us with her sister almost two years ago. Her sister was adopted, but Delilah was in pain and walked with a limp. The vet told us that she needed surgery on her hip. With the Emergency Medical Grant, we scheduled her surgery. She is now recuperating and getting physical therapy (second photo). Next month she will be featured on social media as a healthy, happy dog ready for a forever home. Meet Delilah:

Donner, a shar pei (third photo), came to us with multiple health issues. He was heartworm-positive and his nostrils were too small, causing problems breathing and possible lung problems. There was lots of interest in Donner until his health issues were explained. With the Emergency Medical Grant, Donner has had his nostrils enlarged and started his heartworm treatments. Donner is now in a foster home while he recuperates from his medical treatments.
