When Gidget arrived at the shelter, she was emaciated, anemic, suffering from roundworms and whipworms, and had a bad infection in her mouth. She was also heart worm positive and had fluid in her abdomen that might have been indicative of heart damage from the heart worms. While she received treatment for her various medical issues, Gidget was able to return to a healthy weight thanks to the high-quality, healthy food her shelter received through the GOODS program.
Shelters everywhere are struggling to provide for the many pets in need of help and care. While an average of 6.5 million animals enter shelters each year, only 3.2 million are adopted, meaning there are more and more bellies to fill each year. Unfortunately, pet meals are already one of the most significant expenses for shelters and rescue groups year-round.
Providing pet meals to animal welfare organizations in need allows these organizations to allocate funds elsewhere like medical care and treatment, vaccines, adoption programs, etc. Which makes a huge impact for rescue pets all over the country — pets like Gidget. Just $25 ships 500 meals—donate now to help.
