Out West Pet Rescue: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
It was used for an adoption donation. The family could not figure out another way to secure a payment, so they utilized the Sponsor Me button! The adoption donations we receive cover the expenses for veterinary care: spay/neuter, vaccinations, de-wormings, flea and tick treatments. Any funds that come from grant money go directly to these expenses and any addition medical treatment needed. We have dogs come in need of amputations, bullet removal, surgery for broken bones, and tooth extractions.
We are able to help the animals, and their recovery, instead of having to refer them to another group or vet, and avoid euthanasia.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
This is Ginny. She came in with what we initially believed was a birth defect in her eye, a broken canine and a cyst. Once the x-ray was done, the truth was revealed: Ginny had been shot, most likely intended to end her life! The bullet fragments were found in her eye cavity and in her neck, where the presumed cyst was! We were able to have the fragments removed, and her broken tooth extracted also. She is doing great, loves life, and is a very happy girl.
