Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by Camp Bow Wow and dedicated to helping sick and injured dogs, is celebrating its millionth dollar granted to dogs in urgent medical situations.
The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation is saying “Thanks a Million” to its supporters and showcasing 15 recent grant recipients from rescues and pet parents who needed financial assistance to fund lifesaving veterinary procedures. A few stories include:
- Winnie, a 5-month-old Bulldog pup, was thrown out of a moving car, resulting in a broken leg that required surgery so she could walk on all four legs again.
- Freyja, a service animal for her pet parent, was diagnosed with a gastrointestinal issue that required immediate surgery so she could remain by her parent’s side for years to come.
- Nelson, an abandoned puppy, had a fractured spine requiring surgery before he could be available to adopt.
“As the leading pet care franchise, Camp Bow Wow is dedicated to the health and happiness of the dogs in our care, and we are grateful to be able to extend that commitment to dogs in need by providing urgent medical care grants through our Bow Wow Buddies Foundation,” said Camp Bow Wow President Julie Turner. “We want to thank our dedicated franchise owners, Camp staff and the nearly 10,000 dog lovers each year who make our work possible by donating to the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation.”
The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation has provided grants to more than 900 dogs from 260 rescues and nearly 650 families throughout the past eight years, helping dogs in all 50 states, Canada and Mexico.
With grant applications up 360 percent since 2020, the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation is seeking the support of dog lovers across North America to join in the journey to raise the next $1 million. Supporters can lend a paw by donating online and sharing the word about the Foundation’s compassionate cause. Donations will provide grant funding to help dogs with serious health issues. Later this fall, Camp Bow Wow is launching an online auction to generate additional funding. Supporters can stay tuned for more details on social media by following @campbowwow.
