we need some money asap. half of the pepsi money came plus a grant from the vancouver foundation ($15,500 in total) but that went straight onto our existing vet bills. so we actually have no cash. which would be fine as this is nothing new or upsetting because our vets let us keep charging whenever someone needs vet care.
BUT...that dog from the pound is not at our vets. she is at a clinic out in the valley where we do not have charge accounts. and she is very ill. she is currently in ketoacidosis from untreated diabetes which is life threatening in and of itself. she also is in the midst of a severe attack of pancreatitis which is not making her diabetes troubles any better.
i spoke with the vet today..he feels with aggressive treatment she could return to a good quality of life for now (she is a very old shepherd cross) he says it will cost between $1500-$2000 depending on how long she will need to be hospitalized. i don't have it...my credit card is max'd and my personal accounts are drained..i don't have the money right now to give to saints for her. ( i should have done my income tax earlier!!!)
if the vet had said it would only cost a couple of hundred dollars to help her get better, that would have been great (but not likely.) if a couple of hundred won't save her but a couple of thousand would..i think she deserves to get whatever treatment it is that she needs.
sorry to be asking...if she had come in last week, we could have used some of the pepsi money for her vet bill and not put it all on the overdue accounts..but she didn't come in last week...she came in this week when the first lot of the pepsi money is all gone and the second lot is not due for a couple of months.
if anyone can spare an extra $10 or $20 and pop it into paypal for us... or if you want, you can put the donation directly on her bill at Cottonwood Animal hospital out in Chilliwack (let me know tho so we can send you a tax receipt) with a little bit here and there, hopefully enough will accumulate so i can pay her bill in a week or so when she is ready to come home.
sorry to ask.
oh and the new old sick girl needs a name, so let the naming begin...i am too whacked out of both names and funds this time around.
EDITED TO ADD: Please don't take money that is earmarked for the pub night and switch it to donating to this event. Remember that whatever we raise for that event will be matched by our anonymous donor and to donate $100 here means we loose out on an $100 extra the night of. Sorry that should have been stated clearly in the above post.
