FrankieLoving Heart Animal Shelter:


Meet Frankie. Frankie is a senior special-needs dog who has to have daily prescription medications and prescription food. With the COVID-19 pandemic, donations were down, and all public fundraisers had been cancelled. Loving Heart applied for a COVID-19 Operation Grant and before they knew it, they had the funds they needed to afford prescription food and medicine for Frankie’s skin allergies.
