Saving Lives

A local nonprofit organization Saving Paws & Hooves in Central Florida is giving hope and inspiring others by creating a viable resource for saving pets lives. Believing no animal should be left behind.

It’s scary when your beloved pet needs lifesaving treatment. It’s even scarier to think you might not be able to afford the help they need.

That’s why Saving Paws & Hooves offers emergency medical funds to help responsible pet owners whose pet is in a life threatening emergency and the owners are unable to afford the medical care needed to save the animals life.

Saving paws & Hooves is dedicated to helping and saving animals of any size in a life or death situation where there are limited funds available for medical treatment. Any and all veterinarians can apply for grants on an owners behalf.

“Their goal is to be able to provide financial help to families that cannot afford to save their pet through donations from the community,” says Dr. Katherine O’Brien of Maricamp Animal Hospital. “Through this nonprofit, all veterinary professionals can provide help, relief, and have faith that there is greatness and gratitude within our community.”

The most recent approved grant was given to the family of Lola, an adorable, pint-sized pup who needed emergency surgery when her inguinal hernia suddenly enlarged and was strangulating her intestines, causing a painful and life-threatening condition.

“I will forever be thankful to Saving Paws and Hooves,” says Lola’s owner, Angie Pagan. “Saving Paws and Hooves stepped forward to work quickly, making funds available to help.”  Our hearts go out to all the animals that need help and we hope this organization is able to flourish and prosper with continued support from our community. Do you have a love, passion or desire to help others? Donate today!
