Help for a dog in need,...
« on: 06 Nov 2016 - 12:36:13 »
As most of you know, last year my daughter turned 18. In June she moved out into her own place with her fiance and last month, she got her first job. I am very proud of her leaving the nest and starting out on her own, and not expect "Mommy & Daddy" to provide for her needs into adult hood.

2 days ago one of my daughters dogs was hit by a car after he was let out of the backyard of her friend who was dog sitting while my daughter was at work. Needless to say the treatment is very expensive and my daughters friend of course will not be paying for any of it.

My daughter is pursuing all options to get assistance with the medical bill for this member of her family. She has created a GoFundMe campaign to try to help.

Please take a look, any help anyone could provide would be gratefully accepted.

Thanks for your time.

Obviously the standard forum position applies. No one is under any obligation to contribute, or even view the campaign, if they choose not to.

Would have given more but just spent our "mad money" on a car for the daughter, will hit it again if I get more orders in over the needed time. We have 7 fur-devils and know what frustrations can come up when faced with something like this. Wonder if the local chapter of the ASPCA could help?

Not a problem bro. Every penny helps. Thank you very much!

We just got home earlier from picking up our rescue pup from the vets...for the second time in two months for being bitten by the biggest male dog that we have. So far we're into him for $600, both times were after closing time so we got hit with their $85 after-hours emergency fee in the total. So got to wondering what was the outcome on Zim, was he able to get the needed care or?

After two surgeries, 6 weeks in a leg brace and a Vet bill that my daughter will be paying on for a year and a half (the local rescue paid for about 30% of the bill), they were able to save Zim's leg. Yay! It will never be exactly the same but, so far he has less than 10% impairment and is walking and running on it just fine.

Thanks to anyone and everyone that contributed or even just had good thoughts. All the help was appreciated.

Glad to hear it! He is such a good-looking pup. He'll be old and getting gray hairs before he really has any problems with it, arthritis will eventually set in but he has many great years before that happens! Thanks for the update!
