A few of our latest pleas for help!

helpWe get hundreds of calls each year asking for help. But we also get a large number of emails pleading for help as well. Read a few of these and see why we care so much. Each story is touching, and shows how much people love their pets and how desperately they want to help them. Our job is to continually raise funds so we can get dying and suffering pets the medical care they need when their owners simply can’t afford it.

I desperately need financial assistance for pet. My baby girl is very sick, getting harder and harder to swallow or breathe. Carla Y.

We would greatly appreciate any help getting our Ashlyn proper immediate treatment for her compound fracture. Even if it’s a loan. We did not qualify for care credit and are out of resources. Please help. Rachell C.

My baby Madison is a 9 year old German Shephard.  A few months ago she started having issues with one of her back legs. A local veterinarian recommended an x-ray to diagnose her problem and told me she had Degenerative Myelopathy (DM). She cannot walk anymore without my assistance with a harness. The only way I can get her back to the quality of life is surgery and I would pay the world for her if I had the funds but I don't. I just retired from Active Duty and am seeking employment.  Do you think this charity could help? I am desperate and normally would never ask for help but aside from my daughter, my pup Maddie is my other child and I'm doing everything I can to help her. Veronica M.

Chico is 12 years old. He's been sick for 3 months now, I have some money saved but I really cannot afford this procedure. I am a full time student and I only have enough time to work a part time job. Please.  Megali C.

Hello, I have a 1 year old dog named Daisy who was diagnosed with Epilepsy 6 months ago. So far we have done 4 blood tests since her diagnosis and due to seizures every 30 days or so the vet asked that we up the dose again. With overtime stopped at my job I haven't been able to pay off the last blood tests to make room on my credit card and I don't have the money for another test. The vet said they can't refill her phenobarbital medicine without another blood test. I let them know that all I can afford at this time is her medication and they have advised me that rehoming Daisy may be in my best interest....I just can't do it.  If they won't refill her medicine without the blood test then her seizures would come back with a vengeance. Anything helps! Advice, assistance, opinion.... Anything.
Thank you for your time.  Sarah F.
