As we navigate through the challenges of this COVID-19 pandemic, Must Love Dogs NW reinforces our ongoing commitment to the well-being of the animals in our care, the health and safety of our clients and their pets, our volunteers, and our community. This in mind, Must Love Dogs NW is currently closed for the intake of dogs needing to be rehomed as well as community adoption events. As soon as it is safe for our volunteers to be back out interacting with the public we will reopen our rehoming program again. While this program is currently closed, we do have several others that we are still operating. Our Spay/Neuter Assistance Program is busier than ever due to the financial strain that COVID-19 has caused. We offer up to 10 grants per month to help families have their dogs and cats spayed or neutered.
Our Community Compassion Grant Program is also still active and very busy. We are able to provide monthly grants for emergency medical procedures, surgeries, and other treatments for pets in need. So, while you may not see Must Love Dogs NW out in public currently, please know that we are still here operating behind the scenes.
Bronx is just one such Compassion Grant story. One of our veterinary partners contacted us about Bronx, a 3-month-old German Shepard puppy. At this point Bronx was extremely emaciated and truly wasting away. Bronx had been suffering from a variety of symptoms and the owner was at the difficult point of choosing humane euthanasia if a diagnosis couldn’t be determined. Bronx’s owner had already spent nearly $7,000 on this sweet puppy and there was just not any money left for additional diagnostics or treatments. Must Love Dogs was able to step in and assist with the costs of blood work and medications for Bronx. With this new information, the veterinarian finally had a diagnosis and was able to give Bronx a fighting chance at beating his disease and living a full life.
