This is Grace. When her wireless collar battery went dead, Grace ran into a neighbor’s yard and collided with the lawn mower.

Because her owner Deanna is a fulltime caregiver to her mother, Grace’s operation would have added significantly to the limited family budget. Deanna had expressed great concern for Grace’s ability to adapt to three legs. She worried that they would have to put Grace down. Luckily, with a grant from Rochester Hope for Pets, Deanna chose to pursue surgery, and Grace’s leg had to be amputated.

Deanna said, “Grace is now a three-legged dog. She made it through the surgery and recovery with a happy wag of her tail.” She is grateful to Rochester Hope for Pets, saying, “I want to make sure to tell animal lovers about this wonderful organization, and I mention that donations are always helpful.”
