This morning, Chase was outside going potty when he was hit by a car, and his family was just devastated. He had several open wounds and couldn’t use his back leg. With no money, no transportation, and nowhere to turn, they called animal control, who gave them our number. We were happy to help Chase and his family and rushed him to the vet. Chase was sedated and had x-rays, and we were SO happy to learn he hadn’t broken any bones! The vet cleaned the gravel out of his wounds, bandaged him up, and gave him pain meds and antibiotics.

Thanks to the Gateway Pet Guardians East Side Pet Crisis Fund, Chase went home to his family that loves him instead of ending up at the shelter. He was welcomed home with open arms, dozens of kisses, and squeals of joy. We couldn’t be happier!

Our East Side Pet Crisis Fund helps keep families whole. Many of the residents we aid with this fund have nowhere else to turn. But we can only help when funds are available. With your help, we can make a difference by keeping pets with their loving owners and out of area shelters. Donate today!
