Second Chance Pet Adoption League, Inc.: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The Sponsor a Pet grant money received went towards veterinary care. All the dogs we rescue receive immediate necessary medical care including spay/neuter, tests, shots, dentals, surgeries and medications to treat any medical conditions.
Ursula and Stubby were just two of the many dogs we rescued during Q4 of the Sponsor a Pet program. As is true of most of the dogs we rescue, both of them were in need of immediate medical care. This grant was used to help pay for a portion of their medical bills.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Both of these dogs are still with us in foster care waiting to be adopted. Ursula (first photo), a 6- to 7-year-old blind Schnoodle (first photo), came to us in December severely matted and terrified. She is nervous and likes her space at first but falls into a routine quickly and then gets around well. She doesn’t mind being with other mellow dogs and loves to nap on a comfy bed. Ursula is still waiting for her forever home. Meet her: www.petfinder.com/petdetail/40516172
Stubby (second photo) is a senior who came to us in October from a New Jersey county shelter after being brought to that shelter as a stray in very bad shape. He was about 8 years old and needed to be treated for uncomfortable chronic skin infections he probably had suffered from for quite a while. He’s just over 20 lbs., with a short tail and looks like a Jack Russell/mini Lab mix. He’s fine with other dogs and loves car rides and belly rubs. Meet him: www.petfinder.com/petdetail/39547858
