Medication for dry eyes for Little Bit, the sponsored pet. This was the second donation from the same donor for this dog.

All of our adoption fees go toward medical needs, and Little Bit needed a professionally compounded medication on an ongoing basis. The donation was reserved for his needs.

Little Bit was a previously adopted dog who was returned due to his owner’s declining mental capacity. His family decided they couldn’t keep him, and while we are still in rescue, our contract says we will take them back. So we had Little Bit back for about six months, but then we found him a new home with an adopter who had medical experience and was willing to take on the cost of his ongoing medications. He is a very happy boy now!

We only charge a nominal fee, $100, for an older animal like Little Bit, so this sponsorship for his medical care of recurring prescription meds really helped.

The $45 donation was used to purchase medicine for the sponsored dog, Little Bit. He suffers from dry eye and skin allergies and needs the medication daily. The really great news is that LITTLE BIT HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!! He has a loving mom and companion sister, and is showing his playful, happy attitude now that he is in a home with fewer animals.

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

We devote our adoption fees and donations to pay for medical care and food for dogs in our few foster homes. Every little bit helps, especially with an older pet who needs two different types of medication for eye and skin conditions.

The Sponsor a Pet donation of $45 came from a recurring supporter, and she usually follows a certain pet. I think she donated for Little Bit five years ago when he was adopted out before. He came back into our rescue when his owner developed dementia and was no longer able to care for him, and I think she recognized his name.

The donation was used to purchase medication for Little Bit’s dry-eye condition, which is required on a daily basis. Support for this ongoing cost was very appreciated while we look for a new home for Little Bit. Keeping fingers and paws crossed, Little Bit started a trial adoption period today!

What was the money or product used for?

We applied the $22.50 from Sponsor a Pet donations through the Petfinder website toward the medical costs of a little “wheezy” dachshund named Jackson.

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

Jackson was born with a malformed trachea that caused him to choke on food or water because the muscles couldn’t move things along. The doctors verified that he would have no real quality of life, and unfortunately we had to let him go to the Rainbow Bridge. But every donation towards his care allowed us to keep our adoption fees for medical costs for other dogs.

Jackson was a fantastic 8-month-old dachshund with a beautiful personality. He was surrendered to Pet Adoption Network in Philomath, Oregon, with some health issues. He had pneumonia, which was treated, and a malformed trachea. The poor little man could not breathe appropriately and spit up most of what he ate. The diagnostic work to figure out what was going on with this little guy was quite expensive and, sadly, revealed that he would have no real quality of life.
