How many pets did this grant help?


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

Muffin and Munchkin, sibling 9-year-old Yorkshire terrier/bichon frise mixes, were surrendered to us because of their owner’s health issues. They both had dental issues that were very painful and could only eat wet food, as dry kibble hurt their poor mouths. After receiving dentals, they were once again able to eat dry food and successfully found new homes!
