Funds were used to provide vetting and supplies for three “fospice” dogs, a program for seniors and medical dogs whom Rebound supports for life. These dogs require constant vetting and a steady supply of medication and other supplies.
This grant helped three senior fospice dogs by providing needed vet care and supplies so that they could remain healthy and comfortable in their golden years.
Fourteen-year-old Venus is one senior fospice beneficiary of this grant. We took her into our care after she was surrendered to the Manhattan ACC shelter. Her owner was no longer able to care for her, likely because of her extensive and expensive medical issues. Venus has Cushing’s disease and came to us with many dental needs and a torn ACL. She has so much life left to live but has many common problems we see in senior dogs. We absolutely adore her! She is living in a forever home with her fospice mom, Nicole, where she spends her days sunbathing, taking slow walks in the woods, and eating a healthy and nourishing diet.
