We are so fortunate to have received the Petfinder Foundation Emergency Medical Grant for Hercules, one of 17 kittens from our Sharpsburg Maryland Landing TNR project. Hercules desperately needed his right removed quickly to alleviate his suffering. I applied to your Foundation in July and, within a week, the funds were approved. Hercules barely weighed 2 lbs. when the fabulous staff at Spay Now Laurel performed the surgery. He recovered quickly, and he was adopted to his forever home on this week after we listed him on Petfinder along with his pal Sabrina. Attached is a link to a video his new dad sent us of Hercules playing along with Sabrina and Tabitha, whom we also had listed on Petfinder. We really needed your help to cover this unexpected emergency-medical issue. We are a small organization and I can’t tell you how much your help meant to us. Thank you.
