How many pets did this grant help?


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

Princess came in with a terrible eye issue. We had her evaluated by a vet, who determined the eye needed to be removed, and a surgery date was set. She was placed in a foster home. In between the days waiting for surgery, the eye ruptured and emergency surgery was performed. Since then, Princess has thrived and the foster family fell in love and adopted her. She is truly living a life of luxury now and even has her own Instagram page!
