Street Tails Animal Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Money allocated to Street Tails Animal Rescue via the Petfinder Foundation grant was used to help pay for the neuter and partial tail amputation of Spank, one of our dogs.
Spank arrived with his tail partially de-sheathed at the tip and, despite best efforts made by our vet and his foster dad, it was determined that amputation was the best course of action. The money donated to Street Tails allowed us help Spank so that he was no longer in pain.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Spank is a 12-year-old pit bull whose owner decided that he “just didn’t want him anymore.” Spank spent the first 12 years of his life eating “whatever” and living (for the most part) outside. Even though he had barely known love with his previous owner, Spank was immediately affectionate and playful with his new foster dad. Unfortunately, Spank also arrived with some health issues. Primarily, his tail was partially de-sheathed at the tip and, despite best efforts made by our vet and his foster dad, it was determined that amputation was the best course of action.
The good news is that this story has a happy ending! Spank was adopted almost immediately and is now living it up in his new forever home.
