Animal Placement Bureau: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

To pay Dr. Schultz for "tightrope" surgery on the cruciate ligament of Dublin, a foster dog.

The total surgery cost was $2,100. At this time we have limited adoptions due to the restrictions in Michigan due to the COVID epidemic; many of our scheduled fundraisers had to be cancelled or postponed indefinitely. This has definitely limited our income and affected our ability to rescue more dogs who need to get out of shelters.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Dublin starting limping and was reluctant to walk. This surgery made it possible for him to no longer have pain from using this rear leg so now he is willing to walk without pain medication. After he healed from his surgery, he was adopted.
