This success story is about Kasey, a dog who came to Golden Retrievers in Need Rescue Service Inc. (aka GRIN). GRIN doesn’t turn any dogs away—and we take in many, many dogs with serious medical conditions and we’re proud that we can help them.
Kasey came to GRIN in February of 2018 in terrible shape. Kasey’s owner had decided to put down his dog as he was headed to a nursing home. But thankfully, a Good Samaritan quickly stepped in and contacted GRIN. Her before pics are fairly gruesome and proved she was extremely neglected with horrible skin, missing fur, swollen sore feet, ear infections, bladder infection and open sores. After receiving much needed medical care, countless antibiotics and medicines, veterinarian monitoring, dental care, and soothing baths for her skin, this gal went to a wonderful foster home. Unfortunately, due to her compromised immune system, she soon developed bacterial pneumonia! She was again fully-vetted, monitored and treated with meds. Her foster family showered her with lots of love and TLC and Kasey was soon on the mend. Fast forward several months—Kasey was adopted into a wonderful home with two humans, another dog and four cats. Her health is much improved, she’s content and has become spunky—when she’s not napping!
Cost associated with restoring Kasey to health—$1,725.49. We’re happy that Pedigree Foundation supports rescues and non-profits who are here to help these dogs in need!
