How many pets did this grant help?


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

Murphy came to WAG in fall 2018 after his stray hold was up, covered in fleas and with infection oozing out of his mouth. During initial dentistry, he had 13 teeth removed and it was discovered that his jaw was broken, so he’ll be going to a specialist for further care. He has not been adopted yet. He still requires more extensive dental work. He is a super sweet 8-year-old Maltese mix weighing 9 lbs. He would do best in a home with dogs his size. He can live with a cat but isn’t the biggest fan. His ideal smoke-free home would be with a retired couple or someone who is home most of the day. He loves to sit on his human’s lap, get belly rubs and he absolutely loves going in the car.
