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

The money we received was used to help pay our medical expenses. One of our fabulous hounds that was helped was Daisy B. Daisy B., six years young, came to us when her former owner took a job that would not allow him to care for her. One of her eyes had been injured when she was kicked by a horse. Her family told us it had happened when she was younger. Our vet determined that there was no sight in it and the pressure was causing pain for Daisy. We had her eye removed and she recovered wonderfully.

We’re so grateful that she found her way to Utah Friends of Basset Hounds. It’s difficult to know how long she had been in pain from her eye injury. But we do know that she’s happy and pain-free now! Shortly after her surgery, she was adopted by a wonderful couple from the Boise, Idaho, area and is currently traveling across the country with them in their RV. Daisy B. is a spunky, full-of-life girl who is bringing them much joy!!

Big basset-hound thanks to the Petfinder Foundation for making Daisy B’s surgery possible!
