Julie Breault, Practice Manager, cares for Magnum shortly after the puppy was brought to Heartland Animal Hospital in 2005.

The Magnum Fund is a fund named after the puppy Magnum, who was brought to us after being burned, abused and left for dead. Although every attempt was made to save him, he did not survive his extensive injuries. On the positive side, this ignited a state wide drive to address animal cruelty in Kansas. A law was later passed making animal cruelty a felony. The Magnum Fund was designed to help abused, injured or neglected animals that do not have owners to care for or treat them. The donations have been used to help those that, despite all conditions and injuries, still have charismatic and loving personalities. When these special animals are rehabilitated, we are then able to adopt them out to loving homes.
