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

Mick, a senior Lab, came to Peak Lab Rescue very underweight and unable to eat. A vet exam found seven broken teeth and three oral masses that needed to be removed immediately. Mick’s mouth was so painful that he couldn’t even chew. Thanks to the Petfinder Foundation, Mick had surgery immediately. Everything yucky and painful was removed from his mouth. Mick made an almost immediate recovery — he started gobbling his food like a real Lab and gaining weight. Within a short while, Mick become a happy elder statesman. Thanks to the Petfinder Foundation, Mick was adopted by his foster, who is an experienced lover of seniors!
