Humane Society of York County: Emergency Medical Grant Report

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

Neck-laceration repair and post-operative care of Love.

The $1,000 granted to us helped us directly to pay Love's veterinary invoice. However, more than that, it saved us from the need to redirect funds from dog intake to this emergency care -- and by that I mean that five dogs will not end up as strays or at an [open-admission] shelter. And, of course, it ended the suffering that Love has been going through for months at least.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Love is a sweet 3-year-old female Labrador mix who was brought to us with a severe laceration around her neck, possibly due to an embedded collar. Her former owner is homeless and wasn’t able to give her the care she needed. She was brought to us by a nice gentleman who was really concerned about her welfare. She had surgery and now is waiting to be adopted. She is precious, behaves really well and LOVES everyone. Meet Love:

Please look at the movie we did about her:
