    How Grey Muzzle Helped
    Medical Grant

    Emely, an 11-year-old Chipoo, was brought to Mercy Crusade in Oxnard, CA when she developed a concerning mammary mass that needed to be examined by a veterinarian. Mercy Crusade is a non-profit low-cost vet clinic that focuses on providing spay and neuter services for their community. Many pet guardians are unaware that non-spayed female dogs are more than four times more likely to develop mammary tumors than dogs spayed before age two. Of those, half will be cancerous.

    Emely had not yet been spayed, so staff at Mercy Crusade were concerned about her risk of cancer. Without hesitation, Emely’s family scheduled her surgery. They were concerned about affording the necessary procedures but were adamant that they would do whatever it took to get Emely the care she needed. Mercy Crusade uses funds from a Grey Muzzle grant to provide financial assistance to pet owners who cannot afford treatment. Thanks to the incredible generosity of our donors, Emely had a successful biopsy and spay procedure and recovered with no complications!

    Even better news—Emely's biopsy came back non-cancerous, much to her family's relief! “She is like another dog, very active and happy now," her family said. "Thank you for helping me in a time of difficulty. We love Emely, and our entire family is appreciative of the new life she was given. She seems like a much happier dog now—it’s amazing!”
