Crossroads Animal Rescue: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
These funds were used to cover the medical expenses for Katie, an English sheepdog (first photo), who came to us in very poor condition (second photo). She had matted, dirty, maggot-infested fur that had to be shaved down (third photo); severe arthritis; and was so emaciated and weak, she could barely stand. Once we got her cleaned up, she was placed on arthritis meds and a special diet, which cost about $100 a month.
It allowed CARE to continue supplying arthritis meds and specialty diets for Katie through Crossroads Animal Hospital.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Katie was a sweet girl who came to us in rough shape: She had matted, dirty, maggot-infested fur that had to be shaved down; severe arthritis; and was so emaciated and weak, she could barely stand. She made an awesome recovery thanks to our vet and Katie’s foster home. However, this sweet girl was listed as special-needs due to her arthritis meds and special diet, which cost about $100 per month. She was very happy in her foster home, where she got along great with both kids and other animals. We needed donations of $100 per month to keep her in her current foster home long-term. Thanks to generous donations, Katie was able to stay in her foster home long-term.
