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

Meet Joy! This little girl came into our local Animal Control after being kicked from a balcony. She was in pretty bad shape. At just 7 weeks old and 2.5 lbs., she needed extensive surgery for repair of her leg. She had a broken femur, torn tendons, and a dislocated knee. How anyone could be so cruel to such an innocent pup, I will never know. The only thing we could do was mend, love, and care for her and ensure she found the perfect home!

Without surgery, she would have lost her leg. At such a young age, she deserved a chance to play as a puppy and grow to have a better life. After all was said and done, she ended up with three pins in her leg.

She has since found her forever home and is enjoying life. It took hard, dedicated teamwork and I commend my team for all their efforts and all the wonderful adopters we have that give our pets new beginnings in life after MHCR. Thank you for your support.
