Bear’s family came home to him a mess in their house recently – and, the culprit was Bear. He had a punctured foot, and was bleeding all over. His family tried the best they could to stop the bleeding on their own, but realized he needed to see a vet when they couldn’t get it stopped.
At the vet, Bear was sedated and received stitches—as well as that dreaded cone of shame—but is slated to make a full recovery.
Bear’s mom is a single mom with three children, and this unexpected bill was more than she could afford. She applied to Fur Kids Foundation, and we were able to help.
Fur Kids Foundation was recently awarded a $3,500 grant from the Banfield Foundation® to be used to help the Gillette, Wyoming charity with their emergency veterinary assistance program. This funding helped the Foundation grant money to help Bear’s family with the vet visit. If you would like to help Fur Kids Foundation continue to help families with animals, please consider making a tax-deductible donation. The money helps families during a time when they may not be able to afford adequate veterinary care. Check out more Success Stories.
