Pacific Pug Rescue: Shelter+ Challenge Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Of the $1,000 grant, we allocated the money as follows: $700 was utilized to provide for the mammary removal and histopathology. While Daisy's overall care exceeded $2,200, the grant alleviated a significant portion of the financial burden of providing this medical care to Daisy. $300 was used to provide dental care and also a lumpectomy for Frankie B. His medical care exceeded $1,100, but again, the grant helped to alleviate a portion of the financial burden providing this care.
By providing medical care to both Daisy and Frankie B., we greatly improved the immediate quality of their lives, and also made them much more adoptable.
How many pets did this grant help?
We utilized this grant to help two pugs. Both Frankie B. and Daisy have found their forever families and are loved and cherished family members in their new homes.

By eliminating the medical uncertainty surrounding both of these pugs, it was very easy to find them their forever homes.
