Description
TEAM's Special Medical Needs Program (SMNP) helps fund veterinary care for Shelter animals who are ill, injured, and victims of crisis. Because the veterinary care and housing of these animals can be long-term and expensive, the Special Medical Needs Program allows the Shelter to provide these services without straining its resources. The community's support of TEAM and the SMNP makes specialized medical care available to Shelter animals who have been traumatized by disaster incidents, confiscated by law enforcement, or who are victims of abuse and neglect. This program enables animals in physical need and emotional distress to receive the care they need, with the ultimate goal of making them well and adoptable. Most of the donations made to TEAM benefit this program and the animals it helps.
Budget
$50,000
Program Successes
In 2019 TEAM spent over $37,000 on special medical needs for shelter animals. In December 2019 TEAM funded a heart surgery for a three-year-old Maltese/Miniature Poodle mix diagnosed with Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) which is an opening between two major blood vessels leading from the heart. This opening usually closes shortly after birth. The condition causes the heart to work overtime and the outgoing blood vessels to become enlarged. This caused the dog's heart to enlarge and would not have survived for more than a year if not corrected. The surgery was successful and the dog is doing great with its heart returning to normal size only 24 hours after surgery. The dog was placed in a foster home for 4 weeks and was adopted after post-op rehabilitation was finished.

TEAM supports the shelter in funding spay/neuter services for animals awaiting surgery prior to adoption. TEAM also funds outsourcing of kitten spay/neuter operations during kitten season when the shelter experiences limited housing space.
