How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The $1,000 that we received for emergency care was used to pay for leg surgery for a rescued dog. Vladimir was rescued on the side of the road after being hit by a car. He had multiple fractures in his rear right leg that would not heal with a simple splint.
Vladimir had a 100% recovery and was successfully adopted by a family in Washington.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Vladimir is a 1-year-old Siberian husky who was hit by a car on a major highway in San Antonio, Texas. He was taken to a veterinary clinic and x-rays showed multiple fractures in his leg. The fracture was exposed (the skin was broken and macerated), increasing the risk of infection and incomplete healing. The options were orthopedic surgery with the use of pins/plates or amputation. We opted for the surgery. Vladimir had 100% recovery of his leg function and has been adopted.
