Woody is a young male pointer mix who has been in foster care for almost five months now. He still has a lot of puppy energy and barks and jumps on people, which has turned away many potential adopters. The Orvis Animal Care Grant has enabled us to purchase enrichment items to redirect his energy in a more positive way. He’s a very smart dog and loves to learn. He now knows sit, down, stay, touch, and look at me. You can meet Woody here.

Wag On Inn Rescue: Purina One Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

The grant we received was used to help Ethan, a 13-year-old Maltese mix. It enabled us to provide his adopter with pimobendan for his heart condition as well as Fresh Pet dog food that was recommended by his vet. It allowed us to reduce his adoption fee to $100. It also paid for Ethan’s pre-surgical blood work, in which his white blood count was found to be extremely high and he was referred to a specialist for further testing. With permission from the Petfinder Foundation, the grant was used to pay for part of his specialist visit, which included x-rays and flow cytometry, as they suspect he may have leukemia or a bone-marrow issue.

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

This grant helped pay for Ethan’s much-needed medicine and medical care. His adopter is extremely grateful, as is turns out this beautiful senior boy may have leukemia or a bone-marrow issue. He went for his specialist visit on Jan. 21 for more extensive testing, which was paid for in part by this grant.

This grant was to help Ethan, a 13-year-old Maltese mix who was surrendered to a local New Jersey shelter when his owners could no longer care for him. He was initially diagnosed with a heart murmur, but after further testing, it may be something much worse, such as leukemia. Ethan is seeing a specialist for a diagnosis and to come up with a plan for his care. He was adopted by a loving family that has three other dogs for Ethan to play with.
