Tawny has been living in her car for 6 months in Everett, Washington. She only receives food stamps. She heard about Feeding Pets of the Homeless from looking on the internet for an organization that could help her with her dog.
Skittles is a 5-year-old female Pit Bull who was having discharge coming from her ears for about a month before Feeding Pets of the Homeless was contacted. Skittles is spayed. Our case manager received homeless verification by way of the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services. We arranged an appointment at one of our 1,400 active veterinary hospitals.
After the examination, the veterinarian recommended that Skittles receive her DHLPP vaccine, an updated Rabies vaccine, medicated ointment for Skittles’ ears, and flea prevention. The veterinarian cleaned Skittles’ ears and plucked hair.
We supplied financial assistance of $304 for Skittles for those approved procedures. She is doing well and is thriving.
