PA Caring Hearts: Grant Report

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

The grant monies received from the Petfinder Foundation were used toward dentals for four senior dogs and physical therapy/protheses for two juvenile cats with wonky rear legs.

The dentals received by the senior dogs helped them by relieving their painful chewing and preventing illness due to oral infections. Peanut and Uri, the kittens, received physical therapy for their rear legs to increase their mobility and reduce their pain.

How many pets did this grant help?

Four senior dogs and two juvenile cats.

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

Peanut (first four photos) has no idea she was born with wonky back legs. She only knows that she loves life, she loves her new mom and dad, and she enjoys tormenting her two feline siblings who look just like her! She tolerates her physical therapy, handled her surgery well, and, we are sure, will give it her best shot to master the protheses ordered just for her! “Happy, happy, happy” best describes this young lady. And did we say “active”? Yup, definitely active. From the get-go, Peanut embraced her life with gusto. Her foster home included lots of kids, including human foster kids, rescued dogs and cats, and a huge-hearted foster mom and dad. A truly blended family. Now she zips around showing how great life is with her furrever family. She, of course, considers herself the boss. Watch out world, here comes Peanut!
