The grant was used to help pay for medications for some of our senior dogs who have heart issues, are diabetic, or have allergies.
The grant came at a very important time because of the pandemic situation, where we’ve had to cancel all fundraisers since March 2020. We feel blessed to have been awarded this grant money and thank the Petfinder Foundation very much. Having medications for our dogs is so very important to keep them healthy.
The dogs this grant assisted were seniors who are long-term fosters in our rescue. One is a senior named Chaka who is 15 years old and acts like a puppy. His tail is always going, but his heart doesn’t always let his little body do what he wants. Chaka was diagnosed with heart disease. His foster found him passed out on two occasions and took him to the vet right away. The vet discovered he had a severe heart murmur and, with the help of medication, Chaka has stopped fainting and is back to his happy little personality.
