How many pets did this grant help?


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

Raven, a senior Chihuahua, was pulled out of a Ft. Worth shelter. She had severe dental disease and a uterine infection. With this grant we were able to give her the vetting she needed to have a better quality of life. Sugar Poodle was pulled from the El Paso shelter. She also had severe dental issues and cancerous tumors. With this grant we were able to remove the tumors and provide dental surgery, giving her a better quality of life. This grant also helped us with Spanky’s cardiac emergency vetting, Chance’s nail trim, Mr. Moose’s nail trim, Sugar Bear’s arthritis medication and the heart medications for Miss Minnie and Buddy — giving these seven senior and special-needs dogs the care they deserve!
