When Benny’s pet parent brought him to Blue Pearl, a New York City veterinary clinic that provides overnight emergency animal care, he was in rough shape. This poor Brooklyn pup had serious injuries, and it seemed likely he had been hit by a car. The owners were going through a difficult time financially and could not afford the cost of the emergency care. They were heartbroken and appealed to Blue Pearl for assistance. Blue Pearl was able to provide subsidized care for Benny overnight, and called the ASPCA in the morning to see if we could help cover the rest of Benny’s medical needs.
With the help of the ASPCA Partners in Caring (PIC) grant, a program that assists low-income pet owners with emergency medical care by providing grants directly to veterinary clinic partners, we were able to provide Benny with the attention he so desperately needed. This brave pup pulled through, and is now recovering at home with his family. We’re so glad we were able to be there for Benny, and that his story has a happy ending.
