St. Joseph Animal Control and Rescue: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

The funds were used to pay for surgery on a homeless dog.

We have limited funding for shelter animals and cannot afford to pay for veterinary care for catastrophic injuries such as Beau’s. This grant helped him heal through surgery and rehab and allowed him to be adopted into a new home.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Beau was a young male shepherd mix who came to the shelter with a badly injured leg. After x-rays and a veterinary examination, it was determined that Beau would need multiple surgeries to repair the fractures. Our shelter received a grant from the Petfinder Foundation that allowed us to pay for the surgeries. After Beau was on the road to healing, he was quickly adopted by a loving family! He was so happy to be leaving the shelter and has made wonderful progress. He is jumping and running without any pain.
