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

Quintin came to MARS from a local animal shelter that was unable to place him for adoption. He had been hit by a car and had received femoral head ostectomy surgery. This poor guy was very matted and extremely unsocial — so unsocial that his first foster home could not continue to foster him. Enter the second foster parent, who was willing to work with Quintin and our trainer on staff and, with the help of the Beggin’ Strips donated to us, Quintin was able to find his road home through MARS!
