Bald is Beautiful Hairless & Small Breed Rescue: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We received a 2019 Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant in June 2019. Bellaboo, the dog we received the grant for, was finally matched with the perfect home and went home on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2020. Her mom has been issued a check and will use it for medications and medical supplies for Bellaboo to treat her diabetes and Cushing disease.
The grant allowed us to help identify an adopter who could handle the medical needs of Bellaboo and we have passed the grant on to her to help defray the cost of the medications.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Bellaboo was taken in to our rescue after being surrendered to a local vet’s office as her family could not provide for her. Her blood sugar was over 600 at the time and her Cushing disease had been untreated. Once she was stabilized, we brought her into the rescue to help find her the perfect home. Bella waited several months for just the right home to find her, and on Jan. 11, her new moms and her foster moms each drove four hours one way to give Bella to her new family. She now has dog siblings, a monkey sibling, two moms who adore her, and lots of toys and clothes, and she gets to go to work with her one mom every day at her grooming shop. We couldn’t be happier!
