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

Roadie was found in southern Missouri unable to use his front leg. It appeared that he had been dragged behind a vehicle and never treated. His front leg had to be amputated. He was also heartworm-positive, which we treated after he was healed enough from his surgery. Roadie is thriving in his foster home. He has several furry brothers and sisters whom he loves, but he is still in need of his forever home. From his Petfinder profile: “Roadie is a black Lab mix with only three legs due to being dragged behind a vehicle. He’s a sweet boy needing a fenced yard. He likes kids, cats, and other dogs. He isn’t a good fit for the farm; he likes to sneak into the chicken coop. His date of birth is June 15, 2014.” Meet Roadie:
