Grant recipient #21: Lucky Dog Rescue

Posted by Jennifer on November 3rd, 2011

Congratulations to the recipient of our 21st grant!

We’ve received so many wonderful submissions for the Purina Veterinary Diets® $50,000 Veterinary Care Fund! We are so moved by the amazing lengths rescues and shelters go to give homeless pets a chance at getting healthy so they can be adopted – and think you will be too! So we’re sharing some of the submissions, and all of the recipients’ stories here on our Shelter Blog. Here’s how a $2,000 grant would (or, in the case of our recipients, WILL) change the life of a pet or pets in their care:

Lucky Dog Rescue
Meridian, MS

I take in the worst cases, the abused, the neglected, and the “unadoptable,”and I give them hope, love, and life. I rescue many special needs dogs,former bait dogs, and those who are ill, and then I provide them with all of the vet care and love that they need, before sending them to amazing adopters. However, these special dogs tend to require a great deal of vetcare, which is very costly. $2000 would make a world of difference in the lives of these deserving dogs, providing them with the vetting that they need and a chance at forever. I’m attaching a photo of 2 of the bait dogs I saved, Chance and Noah. Thank you so much for considering Lucky Dog Rescue!
