Save A Yorkie Rescue: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

We received $22.50 to sponsor Porter, a Yorkie puppy.

The money is going to help to pay for Porter's surgery to correct a liver shunt [birth defect]. He could not live without this surgery, which is very expensive. We appreciate all support for vet expenses.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Porter was one of four puppies born to a couple of puppy-mill dogs from Missouri. Two of the puppies died within a few weeks of birth. They had severe liver shunts. One of the puppies was adopted. She did not have the condition. The last puppy, Porter, has a liver shunt and is awaiting surgery. He cannot have the surgery until he is old enough and big enough to survive the surgery. That should be in a few more weeks. Porter should be a healthy little Yorkie boy once he has his surgery. He lives with Tiff, our foster mom who fell in love with and adopted Porter. He is one lucky dog.
