PittieLove Rescue, Inc.: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

Vet care

Our organization does not refuse any dog because of medical needs. This past year we had Gretchen with heartworm disease (she is still undergoing treatment), Maya with incontinence issues, Wanda with severe skin and neurological issues, and, recently, a mom and her seven puppies.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Gretchen came to us from a local Massachusetts shelter where she had been for three years. We never expected her to be such a wonderful dog after being in seclusion in less-than-desirable conditions for such a long period of time. Much to our surprise, she is a happy-go-lucky girl. However, once vetting was complete, heartworm disease was discovered. We have no idea how long she was suffering from this, as no prevention or vaccines were given to her during her three-year shelter stay. She will be up for adoption soon; one more negative heartworm test is needed. We thank you very much for your support over the years! Meet Gretchen:
