A $1,995 grant from the Charlotte Community Foundation has enhanced the capability of the Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County medical staff by helping the organization purchase an infusion pump and the training to learn how to use it.

The pump, which administers fluids and accurate doses, is helping members of the League address the needs of many sick and homeless dogs and cats. This pump can administer fluids for hydration, as well as necessary medications and nutrients that can be vital to an animal’s survival.
