How we helped: 
Dental Expense Grant

Have you ever heard of a pug-belly pig? That’s what her friends affectionately call Betsy, a sweet senior dog who snorts adorably when she’s excited. 

After their person passed away, Betsy and her “sister” Britta, a bonded pair, were taken to Chicago Animal Care and Control.  A shelter can be stressful for senior dogs who have spent their lives in a quiet home, and the chance of finding a home for not one, but two senior dogs together wasn’t good. 

Fortunately, with the help of a Grey Muzzle grant that you made possible, Second City Canine Rescue (SCCR) was able to take in both dogs and give them the veterinary care they needed to be ready for a forever home.  Betsy received an exam with bloodwork, an ultrasound, and laser treatment to get her in tip-top condition. Britta also benefited from medical care that the Grey Muzzle grant helped cover.

After spending time in a fabulous foster home, the girls met another SCCR volunteer, who only fosters seniors and bonded pairs. This kindhearted woman fell in love and adopted both senior dogs! 

Today, Betsy and Britta always have smiles on their faces, love belly rubs, and enjoy short walks. Thank you for giving these “golden girls” the chance to spend the rest of their lives together in a home where they are loved.
