A man has been living in his van for the past year in Las Vegas, NV. He receives food stamps and has zero income. He reached out to Feeding Pets of the Homeless for his 10-year-old male border collie, JD.
While in the parking lot at 7-11, his dog was hit by a car. He had a friend pay for the dog to be seen at a vet the day it was hit. JD was suffering from a broken femur and broken hip.
Unfortunately, JD’s owner did not have the money for the surgery that was needed to repair the broken femur and hip. He called Feeding Pets of the Homeless asking for help.
An intake was completed and homeless verification was provided.
A case manager reached out to a local Veterinary Hospital for a surgery estimate and an appointment was set for surgery.
Feeding Pets of the Homeless contributed $2,034 towards JD’s surgery and he is expected to make a full recovery.
