Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Faith was found as a stray with chemical burns on over 40% of her body and in severe pain in North Carolina. With the help of one of our rescue vets, her caring foster home, and this grant, Faith has shown tremendous progress. Our vet doesn’t think all of her hair will come back so she will require sunscreen and need to wear clothes, but she will be able to lead a normal pug life. Faith was adopted and is now living the good life in Charlotte, NC.
