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

Kitty Lane came to our rescue pregnant and with a chronic cough related to her heartworms. Due to the generosity of the Petfinder Foundation, we were able to provide her with the best veterinary care to alleviate her cough — a reaction to the parasite infestation — and provide the proper treatment to rid her of the heartworms and allow her to have the best life possible. We are happy to report she has been adopted and is living the life she deserves, being spoiled rotten, treated for the infestation of heartworms and free from her chronic cough. She should have many wonderful, happy years due to the kindness and generosity of the Petfinder Foundation.
