Injured, Neglected, Broken: You Helped Them!

When sick or injured pets arrive at animal shelters, the difference between treatment and euthanasia often comes down to whether the funds are available to provide care. That's where our Emergency Medical Fund -- and your donations -- come in.

Here are some pets your support has helped recently. Please consider donating again to help even more pets in need.

Fender
Fender was found running in traffic on a busy highway in Mexico. Thought to have a broken ankle, he was captured and taken to a local vet, where x-rays revealed he had actually been shot and the bones in his right front leg were shattered. The leg had to be amputated, and our grant helped Rockstar Rescue in Arizona cover the cost. Throughout his ordeal, Fender never stopped wagging his tail, and he remains the gentlest and happiest boy ever. You can meet him here or read his story here.

Rogue
Rogue’s foster mom with Planned PEThood of Georgia knew something wasn’t right. The tiny kitten was having trouble breathing and had to be rushed to the E.R. and placed on oxygen. Her vets soon discovered that Rogue needed a lifesaving surgery to repair a diaphragmatic hernia. With help from our grant, Rogue received the care she needed, made a full recovery, and was adopted! Read her story here.

Freddy
Animal Control brought a little pup to Virginia's Angels of Assisi in March. He was all tail wags, but something wasn't right: His little legs were dense with matted fur, and an awful smell wafted from him. Vets soon discovered that he had such extensive mats on his legs, they had nearly severed his foot. They immediately shaved his filthy fur, treated the infection and, thanks to our support, amputated the damaged leg the next day. The dog, dubbed Freddy, recovered and now has a dad who's head-over-heels in love with him. Read his story here.

Matilda
When she came to Orange Street Cats in Albany, N.Y., Matilda had a huge, gaping wound on her shoulders from a vicious animal attack. She also had a life-threatening uterine infection requiring emergency surgery. Our grant helped cover treatment for both. Matilda recovered beautifully and her sweet, playful, silly personality emerged. She'll soon be available for adoption and will make someone a wonderful, lifelong companion. Read her story here.

These pets received second chances thanks to your support. Please consider donating again so that other pets will too.

Thank you for all that you do to help pets in need!
