Bishop's Small Dog Rescue, Inc. NFP: Emergency Medical Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

This grant was awarded for Webster. He came in emaciated, with an older injury to his right front leg. He had to undergo a very expensive plating surgery once he was done growing, as he was a pup when he arrived here and, due to the location and extent of his injury (which was along growth plates), we had to wait.

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

This grant made it possible for Webster to receive the surgery he needed to no longer hurt and be a “normal” bionic dog!

Webster came in emaciated after being forgotten. He had been living in an outdoor run on a farm with weeds taller than the 6-ft. fencing he was in. A friend and her boyfriend happened upon him and immediately called us to help him. He was so malnourished that he was walking on his knees and elbows, but he also had a very bad injury to his right front leg that needed some advanced surgery to replace a portion of it once he was full grown. Webster got his surgery and was adopted not long afterwards, and we still see him occasionally.

Bishop's Small Dog Rescue, Inc. NFP: WAHL Grooming Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

The product, Wahl doggie shampoo, was used for bathing our rescue dogs.

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

This grant helped us by giving us a good, quality product to use on our very deserving (and sometimes pretty stinky) rescue dogs. The product did a great job at cleaning and deodorizing them and making them much more adoptable.

This grant really helped out our Toto. He came in as a stray to Union County Animal Control in Southern Illinois and when his time was up. We rescued him and brought him into our shelter and foster-based program. Toto was what I call a “hot mess” when he got to us. He smelled of farm-animal manure along with being VERY matted and dirty. He also ended up having parvo, which we pulled him through. This shampoo made him into a “new” dog! We bathed him several times the first few weeks and this shampoo kept him from getting too dry, but also helped to make him smell and feel better. Toto is now ready for and searching for his furever home for the holidays thanks to the help of your grant. Thank you, Wahl and Petfinder Foundation!
