How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used $174.50 to help Man Man, a dachshund who came to us with a ruptured disc in his back that left him paralyzed. With the Petfinder Foundation’s help, we were able to provide him with medications and treatments to get him to the adoptable stage. He is now in a happy, forever home with his new family.
We will use $825.50 of the funds for laser therapy sessions and medication for Kolache.
How many pets did this grant help?
Two dogs, Man Man and Kolache.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Man Man (first and second photos) is a 9-year-old dachshund who came to us with a ruptured disc in his back that unfortunately left his back legs paralyzed. He underwent both laser and water therapy, where he swam and walked on an underwater treadmill. Both of those treatments have helped him significantly. Man Man is now happy and healthy in his forever home. Thank you for the emergency medical care grant supporting the cost of Man Man’s care.
Kolache (third photo) is a stray dog, a Chihuahua, that we received in on April 6, 2016, with a severe spinal injury. Our on-site vet believes he may have been hit by a car. He is in a foster home now, but the accident has left a vertebra out of alignment and it causes him great pain. He is on pain medication but is in desperate need of laser therapy to relieve the pain and to help speed his recovery so we can get him to the adoptable stage. Currently, it is also very hard for him to walk. Once he recovers, he will be adoptable and we will find him a forever home too.
