P-nut

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

P-Nut was surrendered to a vet’s office for euthanasia because “he was old.” Thankfully, a foster parent for Carolina Poodle Rescue stepped up to help. He had a terrible mouth full of rotting teeth and hadn’t been groomed in months. He was quiet – almost defeated – during the car ride home from the vet, and yet, in his cloudy, aged eyes, there was hope.

Todd

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

At 11 years old, Todd the beagle was left in an overnight drop pen, constantly coughing without relief due to an advanced case of heartworm disease. Despite feeling pretty crummy, Todd still had a sweet, trusting smile on his face, knowing he was in good hands.

Domain

How we helped

Other: low-cost veterinary clinic

At 14 years old, Domain was found living outside, very emaciated and sick. To make matters worse, he was attacked by a bigger dog and ended up with a badly broken jaw. A good Samaritan wanted to provide Domain with a better situation in his golden years and offered to adopt and care for him. However, his long-overdue and urgent medical care was going to be quite expensive.

Ty

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

Ty was surrendered to Austin Humane Society with a significant mass, causing him great discomfort and needing immediate attention. Grant funds from The Grey Muzzle Organization were used to run senior bloodwork for Ty to ensure he was healthy enough for anesthesia. Thankfully, his bloodwork showed no issues, and his surgery was a huge success!

Greta

How we helped

Other: Adoption Promotion grant

Greta arrived in Northern Virginia at Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) after being transported all the way from Tennessee where she was surrendered by her owner. This sweet 9-year-old shepherd mix was in need of dental surgery to extract painfully decayed teeth. Health issues and her age were potential hurdles to a speedy adoption and finding a forever home.

Ringo

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

Ringo was left overnight in a drop pen at a rural Kentucky shelter with an anonymous note: he was 13 years old, he suffers from seizures, his owner had died, and the remaining family couldn't care for him. We are grateful that Ringo was brought to safety, where he would receive the care he needed and a second chance at finding love again.

Bixby

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

Those big brown eyes may look concerned, but his story is a happy one! At 13 years old, Bixby was taken in by our friends at IndyHumane after he was found fending for himself as a stray. Due to his age and general poor condition, Bixby needed a variety of evaluations and tests to ensure that he was well enough for adoption.
