East Side Pet Crisis Fund: Lil Mama’s Story

Lil Mama waiting at the vet

About a week ago, Lil Mama was attacked by a dog. She got a laceration near her eye, and her family tried to treat it, but it became infected and swollen and she needed veterinary help. With nowhere else to turn, her family gave us a call. Lil Mama had been fixed through our Spay/Neuter Program, so they had worked with us before.

We were able to get Lil Mama in to see the vet at Hillside Animal Hospital. They sedated her, cleaned out the wound, and stitched it up to help her heal. They also sent her home with pain medication and antibiotics. She returned home to her family, who was so excited to see her and eager to help continue with her care!

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!

This story was made possible thanks to our East Side Pet Crisis Fund, our veterinary partner Hillside Animal Hospital, and financial support from Banfield Foundation and supporters like you!
