Once upon a time, seven-year-old Casey was relinquished to the Connecticut Humane Society because his owner could no longer care for him. Casey was shy and worried that his advanced periodontal disease, gingivitis and tartar would prevent a new family from adopting him. Never fear, Casey! A $14,600 Dental Equipment Grant took care of those extractions and a thorough cleaning.

Now, he and his teeth could both have a fresh start. And sure enough, soon after the procedure, Casey was adopted by a very special family. Of course, our story ends with everyone living happily ever after!
