Misfit Mountain: Bar Dog Operation Grant Report

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

This grant went towards medical and surgery costs for our long-term resident Tucker. Tucker was being passed up for adoption due to surgery costs needed, so Misfit Mountain knew we had to get his knee fixed so that he could live a life free of pain and have a chance at a forever home.

Because Misfit Mountain is a small animal rescue that is volunteer-run, access to funds is sometimes limited, making costly surgeries a burden on the rescue. This grant allowed us to achieve our goal of raising enough funds to get Tucker's surgery completed.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Tucker, a pit bull mix, was helped by this grant, as he had to have a $4,000+ surgery to fix his knee in order to be pain-free and have the option of finding his forever home. We knew that nobody would adopt him knowing that he needed a costly surgery.

Tucker has just been cleared to start running again after his surgery in late August. He has been recovering great and has been on two or three meet-and-greets. A neighbor of his foster family has been considering adopting him and has been doing some trial visits with their current animals to see if he is a good fit.

He is not currently listed on Petfinder since he is in a trial foster-to-adopt situation.

Thank you so much for your help!
