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

Alex, a handsome and loving cat, was found wandering the streets looking for someone who would let him in from the cold. Luckily a good Samaritan did and reached out to us for assistance in finding Alex a forever home. This handsome fellow was loaded with all kinds of intestinal parasites and required a lengthy period of treatment and multiple medications to clear him up. We were able to find a foster home to care for him during this lengthy treatment. Happily, we can say that Alex was finally cleared and quickly adopted.
