Your Donation Helped Pets Like Pixie

Pixie is happy and healthy today
Pixie is happy and healthy today

Your donation to the Petfinder Foundation's Emergency Medical Fund helped pets like Pixie, who suffered a lifetime of mistreatment before she was rescued.

Here's her story, as told by RSQ Dogs+ in St. George, Utah, which received an Emergency Medical Grant from the Petfinder Foundation to care for her:

A Rough Beginning
"RSQ Dogs+ is often contacted to assist other agencies with medical cases. Adoptable Pixie had a rough life. She didn’t even have to tell us. She came to us from the Iron County shelter because she needed medical attention.

"She had scars on her body, her canine teeth were filed down or broken off, and her tongue was split down the middle. These past injuries could have been due to a number of things but are consistent with what we see with dogs who were used as bait dogs."

The Care She Needed
"Regardless of her past and what she might have been through, we believed she deserved the best care and a loving home that would spoil her rotten for the rest of her days. She had two masses removed, dental extractions, and was spayed."

A New Beginning
"Pixie fully recovered from her surgeries and became a failed foster. Her foster family fell in love with her right away and immediately adopted her.

"Her adopter tells us, 'Pixie has brought a lot of joy to my life in a short amount of time. She has inspired me to be more resilient.

" 'She has gone through countless trials and still proceeds with life as if none of them had ever happened. She is the sweetest dog and I cannot imagine my life without her happy spirit!' ”

It's donors like you who make happy endings like Pixie's possible. Thank you from all of us at the Petfinder Foundation!
