Success Stories

Recognizing the enormity of the challenges that are faced by veterinarians when they have to euthanize pets because their owners couldn't afford the treatment. Saving Paws And Hooves in Central Florida is dedicated to making a lasting impact through our efforts. Learn more about our efforts through which we were able to save lives and get involved yourself.


Saving Shadow

Poor Shadow came in with Parvo and his mommy Ciera Betch asked us to save him. So Saving Paws And Hooves and SPCA worked together to save his life.
After receiving treatment at Maricamp Animal Hospital he was able to go home with his mom.
Thank you to Marion County SPCA and Maricamp Animal Hospital for assisting in saving Shadow's Life.


Welfare for Wildfire

WildFire was only 3 months old when she was trapped and burned in a barn fire while separated from her mother.
WildFire was blessed that day due to Good Samaritans that rescued her.  She was severely burned over her entire body.
Dr. Blair at Ocala Equine Hospital attended to her immediate medical treatment & Dr. Rullan at Equine Performance Center provided advanced therapy to increase healing time and a speedy recovery. 
Thanks to Saving Paws And Hooves for approving grants from both organizations in order to contribute funds to help save her life.

Blooming Blossom

This is Blossom. Blossom is a 1-year-old calico cat who had a litter of kittens only a few days ago. While the vision of new life is beautiful, the sight of a pyometra or prolapsed uterus is rather terrifying for any pet owner. Poor blossom was rushed into the clinic where her owners were seeking help for her. In the process of pushing out her beautiful kittens, she managed to push out her uterus as well. This is a life-threatening scenario that no pet owner should have to witness.

Thankfully the team at Magnolia Animal Hospital & Maricamp Animal Hospital was able to acquire funds from Saving Paws and Hooves to save her life and she went home the same day. Her owners were too thankful and happy to have their baby home. And her kittens are happy and healthy too.


Heavenly Heathen

Thanks to Dr. Toby Johnson from Silver Springs Shores Animal Hospital for giving little "Heathen" a fighting chance. 
This poor baby needed a blood transfusion to save his life, grant approval helped this family pay for his medical care.
Heathen recovered well after the transfusion and we wish him all the luck in the world.

Loving Lola

This poor baby had an inguinal hernia that got bigger all of a sudden. Her uterus and intestines were coming through an opening in her abdominal wall which is painful and life-threatening. She needed emergency surgery!

Thank you to all the veterinarians and veterinary staff that are keeping our pets safe especially in this chaotic time.

We send her peace and a speedy recovery!

Thank you to all our donors that we were able to contribute to her surgery and saving her life. 


Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. We evaluate our success in this field by gathering qualitative and quantitative data, and using that information to measure shifts and changes from our baseline measurements.

Beautiful Beatriz

Beatriz was in so much pain because of Pyometra (Pus Filled Uterus) and the absolute solution was to take her into 
emergency surgery.
Thanks to Maricamp Animal Hospital for applying for a grant in order to help her dad pay to save her life.
