Jelekeco, Geri and Rhino
How we helped:
Keeping Senior Dogs in Homes

Jelekeco and Geri have both experienced multiple lay-offs due to COVID-19, so when their 11-year-old pit bull Rhino got sick, they needed a little help.

Rhino unexpectedly developed diarrhea and was not feeling well. Thanks to the Michigan Humane Society (MHS) Pets for Life program, funded by a Grey Muzzle grant, Jelekeco and Geri were able to take Rhino to the MHS clinic for significantly discounted veterinary care. 

After his emergency visit, Rhino received antibiotics, special food and a probiotic supplement. After four days, he was feeling much better!

Jelekeco and Geri expressed a lot of gratitude for the discounted services and care Rhino received. They’ve been a family since Rhino was a puppy. In fact, they named him Rhino because at an early age, he began head-butting everyone so they would pet him! He’s continued this trait in his old age, and Jelekeco and Geri can’t imagine life without their snuggly, cuddly boy.
