Waggytail Rescue: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used $482 toward a dental cleaning that Bear had while he was in foster care, waiting to be adopted. The remaining $518 was given to his adopter to help pay for medications he will need to treat his chiari malformation [a congenital defect where the brain and spinal cord connect].
Waggytail Rescue has recently had a lot of fosters who have been very sick and our medical bills are at an all-time high. This grant helped to begin chipping away at vet costs that are not covered by adoption fees.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
This grant helped an 11-year-old long-haired Chihuahua named Bear who was an owner-surrender to our organization. Bear had been neglected for several years by his former owner and now that he is adopted and his new owner has your grant funds, she will be able to afford the medications, gabapentin and omeprazole, that Bear needed to become adoptable and have a better quality of life.
