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

“Nike” came in as an owner surrender. We had adopted him out 5 years ago. He is now over 7 years old. The owner stated that were worried about keeping safe as he keeps running. When he arrived we found out what they meant-he was covered in more sand burrs than I could count! Immediately our staff and volunteers went to work removing the burrs (one of our volunteers who is a groomer came in especially to help out). That night he went home with a staff member who bathed him. You can see how handsome he is after using the shampoo in the after pictures. Nike subsequently went to a permanent foster who fell in love and adopted him!
