Dog Town Rescue: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

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

Purchase of enzyme supplement for our older dog, Buck, who had exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI).

It did help us purchase the enzymes, and make the offer to adopters to have the cost supplemented via the grant.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Unfortunately, Buck (first photo) has passed away. He stopped eating and our vet took x-rays and found two large masses, one in his chest and the other in his intestines. They were consistent with metastatic pancreatic cancer, and we had no choice but to have him euthanized.

We appreciate the generosity of the Petfinder Foundation, and will use the remaining funds to help one of our other dogs in need. We have an older dog named Hera (second photo) who has an enlarged heart and requires daily medicine, and we will make the offer to any potential adopters for her. Meet Hera here.
