Recycled Doggies, Inc.: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

We use all donations and grants to help pay for vet care that our dogs need. Sadly, our dogs often come in in very poor condition, so we run up large vet bills that far exceed the adoption fee we eventually receive for them. Grants like this help us continue to take dogs like that into our rescue!

Grants like this help us continue to take sick and injured dogs into our rescue! Without additional funding beyond our adoption fees, we would not be able to do that. Thank you so much!

How many pets did this grant help?

The grant total was $90. It was applied to our general vet bill, but it was donated on behalf of three of our dogs: Russy, Sydney and Willis.

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

Sydney (pictured) came to us missing a lot of hair, the result of poor nutrition and fleas. The grant helped us get her, Russy and Willis the vet care they needed so they could go up for adoption! All three have been adopted. From Sydney’s Petfinder profile: “What a darling little girl with the cutest underbite ever! Sydney is about 8 years old. She was turned into a local shelter by her owner who lost her job and said she couldn’t afford her dogs anymore. Sydney came to us with severe matting, especially on her legs, and hair loss on her back — likely from a flea infestation. Her fleas are gone, we are taking care of the mats, and her hair is slowly growing back. She’s so sweet! She just wants to be near her person. She walks well on a leash, potties well on a leash. Hardly any accidents in her crate. Sydney longs to be with her person, so if you even just step outside, she watches through the window, waiting for you to come back. It’s really cute! She’s fine with cats and other dogs too. She has an inappropriate growl that doesn’t seem to have anything behind it but that’s why we said no kids. She has never turned around to bite — it seems the growl is just her thing. Her person just needs to talk kindly to her and be the leader and she follows along. Sydney is a darling little doggy who will look up at you with the sweetest eyes and such love in her.”
