Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Cinder is a Beagle/Jack Russell mix that came to us in January 2013. During a health exam, our veterinarian discovered that his jaw was fractured. Because he was found as a stray, there was no way to know how his jaw was actually broken. Sadly, the vet feels that the trauma he endured was from being either hit or kicked. With the grant funds, Cinder received the vet care that was necessary to adopt him out, including taking care of the injuries to his jaw.

Ellie is a Chihuahua that was brought into our group in October 2012. Not long after she was put into a foster home, it was discovered that she was pregnant. In November, while still in foster care, she gave birth to 3 puppies – Nellie, Rocco and Coco. With the grant funds, we were able to care for Ellie throughout her pregnancy. In addition, we were able to provide vet care for the 3 puppies up until the time they were adopted. Ellie has also since been adopted.
