Hopeful Hearts, Inc.: Emergency Medical Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The money was used for hospitalization and medical treatment of an emaciated dog who came into our care after being pulled by animal control officers from an extremely neglectful situation.

This grant allowed for Toby to receive medical care and treatment that literally saved his life. This poor boy probably did not have one more night in him to continue in the condition that he was in.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Toby was pulled by animal control officers from a neglectful situation. They had been keeping an eye on him and estimate that at their last visit he weighed 85 lbs. When they pulled him, he weighed in at 56 lbs. (first photo). The veterinary staff did not expect him to make it through the night, but much to their surprise, he was up and wagging his tail in the morning when they arrived to work. He is now 110 lbs. and has been adopted into a great home, where he spends much time lounging around with his new sister (last photo).
