How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Paisley (first photo) is a little black Lab who was dumped in the emergency room with slashes all over her little body. She was cut up like a cucumber and had lost a lot of blood. She had a big skull fracture. She needed emergency surgery to save her. Sparticus (second photo) is a shepherd mix who came to the rescue from death row with foreign items in his stomach. He was a little bag of bones. He needed to have the items in his stomach pass or be removed. He needed TLC to get some weight on and be a healthy, bouncy baby boy. Ben and Jerry (third photo) are two pit bull pups who, at only hours old, needed to be in the intensive care unit. The owner of a momma dog let her suffer and did not get vet care when a baby got stuck in her birth canal. Momma and four other babies did not make it, but Ben and Jerry received emergency vet care, which included the ICU. (Jerry is in the fourth photo.) We are happy and honored to report that all these furbabies are happy, healthy, alive and well.
UPDATE: Paisley has been adopted!
