O’Malley was in need of a dental so we were able to have it done thanks to this grant. $75 of O’Malley’s adoption fee and $50 for the home visit helped to get him a good home.

O’Malley came to our rescue two years ago with horrible ear infections, gingivitis, FIV and food allergies. He was neutered and a dental was done when he first arrived here. It took several months of treatment and tests to determine that O’Malley had food allergies which were causing his skin problems and ear infections. O’Malley was put on prescription food and his ears were to be cleaned two to three times a week once the infection was under control. Four months ago, O’Malley was drooling excessively, and the vet determined that he had gingivitis again. The cost for his dental, bloodwork and fluids was just under $500, which was a financial strain for our small rescue. We applied for and were given this grant. O’Malley had his dental on Jan. 14, 2020, was rechecked by the vet on Jan. 24, and was adopted on Jan. 25! His new family loves him so much and has another special-needs cat with food allergies, so he and O’Malley have the same requirements to keep them feeling their best.

What was the money or product used for?

O’Malley’s dental procedure is scheduled for Jan. 14.

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

O’Malley has gingivitis and needs several extractions. He slobbers a lot, especially when he eats, and has lost weight. Having the dental will stop the pain in his mouth and make eating less painful for him.

O’Malley has not been adopted yet. From his Petfinder profile: “O’Malley thinks everyone is here to visit him. He loves all people and is a fantastic cuddler. He loves hugs, kisses, napping anywhere he can be touching you, and head bumps. Everyone falls in love with O’Malley immediately! O’Malley is really good with my dogs but he made sure to establish the pecking order when I brought him into the house. He would be fine with any cat-friendly dog with proper introduction.” Meet him here.
