This grant helped pay for treatment for Arabella that saved her life.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Arabella was one of two pit bulls seized from a man in Hayti, Missouri, by the Hayti Police Department when they found them in poor condition. Arabella was the worse of the two and had been dragged behind a vehicle. Her wounds were not treated, resulting in a severe infection. She was malnourished, anemic, covered in fleas, and had open wounds on both back paws and her legs, some down to the bone. She could barely stand on her legs. She was vetted and rehabbed and will go to her forever home after she is spayed on Sept. 8. Before and after pictures are attached.
