How many pets did this grant help?


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

Beaux, a 3-4-month-old shepherd pup, was hit by a car and came to our rescue in a lot of pain, unable to walk and starving. We took him straight to our vet and x-rays showed damage to his pelvis, a broken ball joint on his leg at the hip and bone scraping on broken bone. His prognosis, if left untreated, was a life of pain and a bad leg, compounded by hip problems — and he will grow to be big dog. The grant enabled us to get him into surgery right away and get the bone fixed. He is recuperating wonderfully, and is a happy boy now that the pain is gone. He is a very loving puppy and is getting adopted now that his prognosis is good for his age.
