Friends of Eden Animal Shelter Receives ASPCA Grant

Medical Assistance for Special Needs Animals, Made Possible by Lil BUB’s Big Fund for the ASPCA

FriendsOfTheEdenAnimalShelter(Eden, NC) – The Friends of Eden Animal Shelter, Inc., today (December 30, 2015) announced that it had received a $500 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (the ASPCA) made possible by Lil BUB’s Big Fund that provides medical assistance for animals with special needs.

This grant is especially needed at this time to assist with medical care for Bandit, a puppy that was hit by a car. X rays showed that Bandit had a broken growth plate in the shoulder of the right front leg and needed immediate surgery. Sadly, the owners waited almost two weeks before surrendering Bandit to Friends of Eden Animal Shelter due to the cost of the surgery. By then, Bandit’s broken growth plate had begun to heal and had to be re-broken and his hip was also out of joint on the back leg probably due to overcompensation to avoid walking on the broken leg.

“What a great Christmas present for Bandit, it could not have come at a better time”, said Sheralene Thompson, Friends of Eden Animal Shelter board member. The ASPCA, founded in 1866, serves as the nation’s leading voice for animals. This 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, is a national leader in the areas of anti-cruelty, community outreach and animal health services. “We feel blessed to have received the Lil BUB’s Big Fund grant at this time.”
