Saving Great Animals: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We received a bonded pair of shih tzus named Princess and Spike who had suffered from terrible neglect. Both dogs needed to be fully groomed under general anesthesia to remove years of heavy, matted fur. This cost roughly $300. In addition to needing to be spayed, Princess also had a severe ear infection, and the cytology, injections, and medication cost roughly $300. In addition to his neuter, Spike needed a full dental, which cost roughly $200.
This grant enabled us to help two dogs received as owner surrenders, both in awful condition. We received $500 from the Petfinder Foundation to assist with the medical expenses listed above.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
We received a bonded pair of shih tzus named Princess and Spike who had suffered from terrible neglect. Both dogs were around 8 years old and needed to be fully groomed under general anesthesia to remove years of heavy, matted fur. In addition, both dogs had severe infections, were in need of dental care, and needed to be fixed and fully vaccinated. We are happy to report that the dogs made a full recovery and were adopted out together. The family reports that they are loving their new little family, and they recently “bought them a new house” with a large yard in West Seattle. Spike constantly tries to dominate Princess, but Princess is slowly finding her voice and confidence, and even stands up to him sometimes. It’s a happily-ever-after ending for these two.
