How many pets did this grant help?


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

Abigail was found with her two siblings living in a dangerous situation at a pallet company in Fargo, N.D. They were all feral, positive for ringworm, and had had no human interaction when they were live-trapped.

After three months in a foster home being socialized, they completed their medical regimen of one rabies vaccination, three distemper vaccinations, multiple dewormings, FeLV/FIV testing, microchipping, spay, and ringworm treatment. They were finally ready for their new homes.

Abigail was the shyest of the bunch and took the longest to socialize. She is now happily living her best life in her new home and has become part of a loving family.
