How many pets did this grant help?


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

Ezmarelda was found as a stray in a rural Ohio county. She was weak and had obvious signs of severe malnutrition as well as skin issues. This very sweet girl was a dream dog. Each day she gained strength and became a happy, playful dog. She was adopted by a wonderful family who love her to pieces! Ez is living that happily-ever-after we hope for with all our dogs. We have many great placements and happy endings, and this one is right at the top for a perfect match made! Thanks to all who donated to help us help this wonderful, once-homeless and very sick dog.
