Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant

What was the money or product used for?

The entire Badass Brooklyn community remains grateful to the Petfinder Foundation for your $750 grant. With the funding, we paid for urgent medical needs for dogs in our foster care.

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

The Petfinder Foundation grant helped us provide medical services to three of our rescues whom we retrieved from high-[intake] shelters in the south:

Moira Rose (first and second photos) is an adult Chihuahua mix who also had surgery for her cranial cruciate ligament, and funding paid for her post-surgery vet visit ($125).

Robert March (third and fourth photos) is a senior hound mix who came to us with an array of health issues. Funding paid for treatment of his respiratory issues — which turned out to be heartworm — including a fungal serology panel ($475) and medications ($25).

Cliff Booth (fifth and sixth photos) is an adult shepherd mix who had surgery for his torn cranial cruciate ligament (the same as ACL surgery for humans), and funding paid for his post-surgery vet visit ($125).

How many pets did this grant help?

Three

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

We rescued Moira Rose (first and second photos) from a hoarding situation in Georgia, where her medical needs had been sadly neglected. When she arrived in Brooklyn in the fall of 2019, we found that she needed heartworm treatment and CCL surgery! After recovering from her heartworm treatment in April 2020, she was cleared for the surgery. Our fosters who cared for her through recovery fell in love and adopted her in late May! She will live out her full and happy long life with a dog brother and many adoring fans.
