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

Tulip was rescued by Mutts in a Rut Rescue from Cleveland Animal Control. She was picked up as a stray in horrible condition. She was missing most of her fur. It was determined that she had ringworm. And she was found to have an oral-nasal fistula — a hole in her gum where a tooth had been. Thanks to the Petfinder Foundation, the fistula was repaired. She grew back her fur and it was determined that she is actually a Sheltie! She was adopted five months after she was rescued by a loving family who adores her.
