Companion Cats: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

Braxton's dental

We have many older cats who often require medical attention. We often have to find the money to pay for these much-needed services outside of our budget. This dental grant saved a life.

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

Braxton underwent a dental procedure for a condition called stomatitis. Because he was in so much pain, he quit eating. To save his life, a feeding tube was surgically inserted so he could be fed and be given antibiotics. Once he was off the feeding tube and stable, he had his dental procedure completed. Braxton is no longer in pain and is recovering nicely.

Braxton went to a foster home so he could get away from the stress of the shelter. This wonderful family is a “foster failure” and he has been adopted. He’s much happier now.
