Rescue Ridge: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

We used it for medical for a 10-year-old dog named Amy. Amy came to us overweight, with Cushing's and diabetes. Since we have had her, we've had to remove a tumor on her tail and give her daily insulin injections and different medications to keep her comfortable. A wonderful woman is fostering her, but this woman has a lot of health issues so she does not drive. We deliver Amy's medications and bring her to the vet.

Amy's medications are very expensive, along with the needles. This grant allowed us to buy a machine to test Amy's blood.

How many pets did this grant help?

Just Amy

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

Amy’s family had dementia so they brought her to a shelter. The shelter could not give Amy the medical attention that was necessary so they were going to euthanize her. We felt there was no reason to do that so we took her. Amy has been happy for over a year now. Due to all her illnesses, we can not find a permanent home for her, but do have a wonderful foster. Amy is very grateful to have a place to sleep each night and to know that she is loved.
