Helping Hand 4 Animals: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

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

Vet bills for one rescue, Bella. She required hundreds of dollars in medical tests to help determine the cause of the condition she has suffered from since the beginning of the pandemic.

HHA currently has thousands in debt for boarding and vet care. These recent times and challenges have caused most donations to cease.

How many pets did this grant help?

One: Bella

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

During this pandemic, HHA has had two dogs suffer from mystery illnesses, which required rather extensive vet bills to diagnose and treat. The latest is little Bella, who suffers from neurological and muscular diseases; this week’s tests alone set us back several hundred dollars more. It has been determined that Bella suffers from masticatory muscle myositis, with underlying sporadic seizures. She is currently on prednisone. She has been able to eat better since her treatment. Bella is still in search of a forever or foster home. You can meet her here.
