The Grateful Dog Animal Rescue: Bar Dog Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The $500 grant will be used to provide 2.5 months worth of Khan's (very expensive) medication, Atopica, when he is adopted. The $500 is set aside in our account to purchase this medication for his adoptive family when the time comes. We have not purchased the medication yet, as it doesn't have a long shelf life and we don't want it to expire. We don't know how long it will be until he finds his forever home.
This grant will help Khan significantly. Khan's medication costs us $200 per month, and this is not including a very expensive diet, which is averaging $500 per month. Being able to purchase two months worth of Khan's medication will, we hope, increase his chances of finding a forever home, as his medical condition is not the easiest to deal with, and we want to make sure he is set up for success!
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Khan has not been adopted yet, as he still has a very long way to go until he is cleared, medically. Khan suffers from severe environmental allergies, as well as allergies to all meat-based proteins.
He was surrendered to us skin and bones and without any fur on his body. While his fur has started to grow back, we are struggling with trying to get him to a healthy weight, despite the amount of food he is eating. We have upped his caloric intake and are trying to get him to a healthy weight and let the rest of his fur fill in.
He has only been in rescue with us since June. We anticipate him being in rescue with us at least for the next six months. He has some ways to go for his recovery, and is not posted on Petfinder yet as a result.
