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

Khloe, a 2-year-old chocolate Labrador mix, was rescued from a high[-intake] shelter located in a rural area of Texas. She was slated to be euthanized because of overcrowding at the shelter. A rescue group fell in love with her because of her sweet and disarming personality. When she was transported to Kent Animal Shelter, it was found that she needed bilateral cruciate ligament surgery that would cost in excess of $3,500. The surgery was completed on June 26, 2018. Khloe luckily recovered quite well while in her foster home, which ultimately adopted her.
