Humane Society of Amherst County: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The money was used to save an emaciated young dog in danger due to the condition he came in.

We were able to get him vetted and back to a good/healthy (normal) weight. With meds, his hair came back nicely and he returned to the beautiful dog he was before the neglect.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Dragis (renamed Dakota) came in horribly emaciated. His hair was thin. He was found on the side of the road by a Good Samaritan. He was standing beside his brother that was hit by a car and died. It was a very sad story. We got him healthy and a Malinois rescue group four hours away took him into foster care. His foster mom KEPT HIM!!! He is now spoiled rotten — we get updates and he looks BEAUTIFUL!!
