Meet Some of the Pets Your Donations Have Helped

Thank you as always for your generous support of the Petfinder Foundation's Emergency Medical Fund! Here are just a few of the homeless pets whom your donations have helped save from terrible suffering:
The 7-year-old American Eskimo dog was found as a stray in Phoenix, Arizona, with a huge, open wound on his face. Taken in by American Eskimo Rescue St. Louis, Dreamer was diagnosed with soft-tissue sarcoma and, with help from our grant, underwent two surgeries to remove the tumor. Today, Dreamer is a healthy, happy, sweet boy who is ready to go to his forever home! Read his story or learn about adopting him.
One cold Utah day, a sweet little grey-and-white kitten crawled under the hood of a car to keep warm. The car's owner had no idea the cat was there, and when he started the car, Frankie was severely injured by the engine. Thanks to our grant to Paws for Life Utah in Heber City, Frankie was treated for his badly torn skin and broken leg. He's still under veterinary care, but is loved by clinic staff and expected to make a full recovery. Read his story.
This cuddly girl was found abandoned on a property where she had been on her own for two months. She was pregnant, starving and had terrible skin disease. Because of her poor condition, four of her puppies were stillborn and she had no milk to nurse the three who survived. Our grant enabled the Miss Gabriel Foundation of Rogue River, Oregon, to save all four dogs. Read their story or learn about adopting Chloe.
Nine-month-old Duchess was bitten on the leg by another cat and developed a severe infection. X-rays showed it had settled into the bone and damaged the joint so badly that amputation was the only option. Our grant allowed The Cats' Cradle Organization in Morganton, N.C., to pay for Duchess's surgery, and today this friendly girl is recovering well and getting around just fine on three legs! Read her story.
Thank you for all that you do to help these and other homeless pets in need.
