One lucky dog named Oscar.

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

Oscar is one lucky boy to have been sent to Cocker Spaniel Resources, Inc., from another rescue which is not breed-specific. The impact of money from donations and sponsors is beyond words; without donations and sponsors Oscar would have gone over the Rainbow Bridge. The generosity of Petfinder sponsors and donations has truly made a difference in Oscar’s life. He came to CSR needing to have both eyes removed due to glaucoma. Before he could have surgery, Oscar had to have his blood pressure under control; then he had surgery to remove a bladder stone. He will be on blood pressure medication and eat special food for the rest of his life. He is totally blind due to having had his eyes removed. He has been adopted and is the joy of his family’s life.
