Fixing Backs & Giving Back Success Stories and Photos 5/15/2014 - Our First Award!
Operation Underdog has one our first month of 'Chipley Chiropractic's Fixing Backs & Giving Back' Operation Underdog's Goal is to assist our community as well as local shelter organizations in caring for homeless and unwanted animals through rescue, foster placement, and adoption, thereby reducing the rate of euthanasia of shelter animals in this area.
They help our local animal shelter through foster placement, vetting, and transport of animals going to rescue. They also pull shelter animals at risk of euthanasia and place them for adoption through their organization, performing a thorough screening prior to placement. Once a month, they transports over 40 community cats and dogs to a low cost spay and neuter clinic in Barboursville, WV, to try and prevent more unwanted animals in our area.
They currently have 18 dogs in foster care looking for their forever homes. They requested financial assistance to test each dog for heart worm. Heart worm testing is preventive and is something they cannot usually afford to do for their dogs. Chipley Chiropractic is very happy to help these volunteers who work so hard to save animals and spay and neuter animals. Our hope is by knowing the dogs are heart worm free, hopefully they will be more adoptable. Heart worm disease is a serious threat to our pets, and there has been an increased prevalence among shelter dogs recently. If it is found early it is treatable.
All of us from Chipley Chiropractic want to thank Operation Underdog for applying for a grant with our new funding program. We are very happy to present them with a check for $576. Look for more pictures to be added in the coming days. Check out their website and Friend them on Facebook!
