Animals like Fred and Ginger, two 9-year-old Chihuahuas, were helped by the generous support of donors to the Cinderella Fund. These two best buddies came to the SF SPCA with a variety of medical issues. Fred had abnormal liver enzyme levels and a partially atrophied jaw. Ginger had hypothyroidism and severe dental issues.
The SF SPCA was able to care for them both by providing medication or treatment for all of their medical needs. Once they were feeling better, Fred and Ginger were back to their normal selves. Fred is an outgoing little guy who will always be the first to greet you; Ginger is a bit more shy, but she adores chin rubs and romps in the park.
While out for a walk in a park one day, Fred and Ginger met a couple that loved Chihuahuas—the four instantly connected. The man and woman each picked up and cradled one of the little dogs, and decided then and there that they needed to be part of their family. Soon Fred and Ginger found themselves in the comfort and security of a new home with the couple, two wonderful people that had love and time to share with them.
At the SF SPCA, we see happy endings to stories like Fred and Ginger’s every day. But those stories often begin with homeless animals that need medical treatment before they can be available for adoption. Our commitment to saving these animals is unwavering, but the cost of their treatment and medication can be steep. The Cinderella Fund helps to cover the cost of urgent and extraordinary medical care.
