How many pets did this grant help?


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

At age 16, Arabella is a tiny senior dog whose owner was no longer able to care for her. She weighs only 3 lbs. and has recurring bladder stones. In the past, she would have had surgeries to remove the stones. Due to her age, she is no longer able to have surgeries. Arabella is still able to live a happy, comfortable life, as our veterinarian has placed her on medication and a diet to minimize the possibility of new bladder stones. Arabella is still looking for that special home where she can spend the rest of her days on someone’s lap. You can meet her here.
