Hi my name is Brianna Klinkiewicz and my cat, Butterscotch needs help or he will die. It all started 6 months ago when he wasn’t urinating at all. It was a close call and we had to take him to the emergency vet near death from a urethral obstruction. The vet told us we could either put him down or have a expensive surgery totaling over $1000. We chose to do the surgery, applying for medical emergency animal help from multiple organizations and kept getting denied until a friend graciously helped us get the money and save him. The vet told us they had to perform a surgery they’d only done twice before and that it was a very risky operation in which they had to cut everything out of butterscotch and form a new hole for him to urinate out of because everything was dead in his genital area. He survived the surgery, came home and was fine until he got a infection from complications due to the surgery. He also got ringworm from another cat and was rapidly deteriorating from his many medical issues. Just a few days ago, he started to block up again in his new hole being used to urinate out of, and started trying to go pee everywhere in the house, leaning over and growling deeply. We were extremely worried about him and thought that he was going to die. That night, he suddenly just layed down and started howling like he was in tremendous pain. We felt his bladder and knew he was blocking up again and would probably die overnight if we didn’t get him to a vet. As we only had $70 to our name as we are very poor, we knew we couldn’t take him in that night but didn’t want him to die a slow, painful death. He survived the night and was taken to out vet in the morning to see what they could do for him. They said he would need a catheter and if they couldn’t get it in then he would have to be put down. They got the catheter in but the cost of all of his medical bills are over $800 and we can’t get any help this time around from friends as they can’t afford to help either. If we can’t pay these bills within a few days then they will be forced to put Butterscotch down if we can’t pay the vet bills for him. I and my family do not want to have to have him die if we can save him, but our money situation might force us to die if we can’t pay his medical bills. My email is email@example.com and please if you can help me even a little bit then it would do so much for me and my family and Butterscotch.
Hello, I am a 16 year old from Indonesia. Despite living in (what is considered) an ‘elite’ area of Jakarta, there are still a huge number of stray cats roaming around! It’s quite sad really, but hey, at least they get to climb trees and discover.
It’s unlike in developed countries where there are plenty more accessible shelters or organizations that deal with them. There are a few NGOs (shelters mostly), but it is far from enough. Many of the upper class Indonesians also opt/prefer certain breed of cats that are NOT the local stray cats (the most commonly sold ones are Persians and Angora which are commercially bred in pet shops).
Onto my case. I found my baby kittens literally on my roof. Their mother (also a stray) gave birth there. We were forced to take them down for safety reasons. Unfortunately, the mother refused to take them back so we… Well, its been 7 months now and I didn’t really mean to adopt them, but I kinda liked them a bit too much to let go. And to be honest, I don’t think they’d survive as well as the other strays if I were to let them go (as in put them somewhere further), because they wont be adapted to seeking food from the trash.
For the first few months, I was personally tutoring a student who came regularly. Thus I managed to keep the kibbles coming but now they are eating more and I dont have a source of income. As school hours is making it difficult for me to have a stable tutoring schedule and thus I lost the few students I had. On top of that, I am one of two daughters to a single mother with 0 father support. He has not contributed in any manner ever since I was about 10 months old. Not to mention my mother has an unstable job and is not very emotionally sane.
Many would suggest that I work in more formal sectors, maybe service line. However, it is really a different case in third world countries such as Indonesia. The minimum wage in the capital city stands at 250usd/month full time. That just shows how difficult it would be for me to attain a well paying job part-time. There is quite the number of relatively cheap labour that there is virtually no place that would hire an adolescent my age.
A pack of food would cost me 5USD/1.5kg. This would last me about a week (2 cats!). so 5*4=20/mo for food plus another 5usd for 10 liters of clumping sand. I am trying my best to provide for these two baby cats whom I really love (which says a lot given I am not very fond of many people or things), thus I choose not to include regular vaccine costs or potential vet check ups.
Hello my name is Ana Coyle I’m 25 years old and I need help raising $3,750 to get me a trained service dog for my PTSD , depression , Bipolar and Anxiety. I came across this post from Blue Ridge K9 Training (which you can find on Facebook) while looking for my perfect pup to train myself again and instead of a organization that’s wants $5,000 to get on a list I pay $3750 for a fully trained dog we’re I pay $937.50 for a deposit and then half to start training then two week later another $937.50. For the puppy raising service dog program, they come with their AKC paperwork, weekly lessons with me and a trainer, akc star puppy certification and akc canine good citizenship certification once you and the puppy passes. Puppy will be updated on vaccines, come with service dog vest and service certification. I’ve prayed and asked for some sign from God asking whether I should just give up on a service dog or not and poof! He answered me. He told me to not give up! Im hoping that when I get my service dog I want to finally attend college and become a graphic arts designer and maybe get a job doing something with animals as I love animals alot. And to hopefully make or renew old friendships to get out more with my children and not fear of a anxiety attack. I want to be able to go to the store and buy food by myself with my kids or to go to church a restaurant , especially a crowded one and not feel like I’m going to pass out or something bad is going to happen to me. Before when I had my Service Dog Doobie who I trained for a whole year all by myself , well let’s say I was a different person I went out to eat , I felt like I could breathe I felt like a normal person. I could accomplish anything with my buddy by my side. And when I lost him my world crashed , I remembered how horrible this world is , my anxiety came back to the point I never left my house for weeks. Even now I still don’t unless I really need to. But thankfully my prayers have been answered like I stated and I’m going to move forward with getting another Service Dog so I can go back to being as normal as I can be especially for my babies.
Please help me by donating or This is probably the best thing I’ve ever came across and I believe God showed this to me for a reason as I’ve prayed hard for help and I hope to get it soon.
Thank you in advance!! And God Bless.
Hello, my name is Irene. My poor little Snoden has a problem with his right eye and needs to see the vet as soon as possible. I live in Killeen, TX and I called every Vet clinic and they do not do not do billing or payment plans so that makes it a lot harder for me since I do not have any money to take him. I posted pictures of his eye and it seems like he has an abscess or something infected behind his eye causing it to swell and push his right eye out a bit and that could damage his eye or he could potentially lose his eye. He is only a two month old pup and does not deserve this at all. I do not know the cause, I just noticed the swelling yesterday morning and I thought it was a spider bite or that he got stung by some insect. In order to take him to the vet it is $40-80 just to get an exam, and then from there it depends what they will do that will add on to more expenses. He may have to get surgery, or a cleaning procedure, or medicine. I just really care about Snoden, I just got him this week as an early birthday gift and I feel horrible that I can’t help him on my own. I was supposed to get his shots and deworming done this week but this had came up and now I have to focus on getting his eye treated as soon as possible so he won’t lose his eye or suffer anymore. He is always crying and trying to scratch his eye so he has a cone around his neck. I asked my friends and family for help but nobody has the funds for it either so i’m really desperate and i really would appreciate any help, even just a few hundred might help and maybe the vet could work with what i have.
Please help my Snoden live happy with his eye back to normal! whoever can help, may a lot of goodness and happiness come your way, and I truly appreciate it.
Hi I have recently been made redundant and I am struggling to feed myself and my pets, I have a cat and two dogs. I always have lived from payday to payday and I never thought I would lose my job. As I do not have any photo id like a passport or drivers licence I am struggling to claim any benefits. I am desperately trying to get another job quickly but finding work in my area at the moment is hard. I have run out of food and pet food and do not have a penny to my name, I’m worried that I may have to give up my pets for adoption. This would have to be the very last resort though as they have been with me for 9yrs or more, rehoming them would be extremely stressful for them. I have not eaten anything since Sunday (06/08/17) and have not been able to feed my pets since Wednesday (09/08/17). I am not too bothered about myself (I know I can survive a few weeks without food) I just need enough to be able to buy some pet food for the next few weeks. Anything at all would help and be very much appreciated by and my pets.
I thank you in advance for your help,
Kind Regards, Anthony, Whiskey, Misty & Bruce.

I am 34 years old come July 12th of this year. I have been searching unsuccessfully for a job for close to 17 years. I am mentally disabled, but the government insists that I am fit for work, which is great except that no one will give me an interview, and the one time I did get a job it literally almost killed me. As it turns out I suffer from anxiety not just depression and when I went to work and had to face angry customers I broke down severely and nearly took my own life.
That was the last interview I got. My parents are getting older, and they’ve never shirked their responsibility, my father should be retired but at nearly 70 years old he’s still getting up and going to work every day because he has to support me. I can stop the vicious cycle killing my father, but I need help.
So this is where you come in. I am a big lover of animals and have always been best at caring for them even over myself. I adore working with them. I wish to start a small poultry farm in my hometown area. I’ll be getting egg laying hens and I intend to not be like the industry and toss them away when they stop producing. I will use them as my own meat to cut grocery costs, or sell the meat these chickens sacrifice for our well being, but only if I can’t find a good home for them first. Their lives won’t be in vain and I will take extra good care of them until it’s their time to go.
There is a great 5 acre home in the town 15 minutes from my hometown for $180,000, it has 4 bedrooms which means my homeless best friend can come live with me and help me on my farm if she wants, and our other best friend can also move in so he can look for work down here. If I had $190,000 to $200,000 I could purchase the home and build a chicken facility that I can upgrade over time to give my chickens the best life and death possible while also helping my best friend who has no where to live but her car.
Thank you very much for your time, this was extremely hard for me to ask so I hope you will help me.
Hello, sir and mam. I would like to say thank you for giving the time reading this. I would appreciate your generosity.
We, my mom, my brother, and I, have a dog named Yennifer. Our mom found her last year at SPCA the day after our previous dog, Zara, passed away. We love our dog very much that we try to stay at home most of the time. We eat with her, play with her, and sleep with her. She is currently two years old and it made me sad what is happening to our dog.
For a while, Yennifer hasn’t been eating a lot, but what concerned us the most is that she’s coughing very often. We took her to the vet to see what is wrong with her. A couple of hours later, the veterinarian stated that Yennifer has Lymphoma, a common cancer of lymphocytes. We didn’t know it is, but we know that she Yennifer has only one or two months to live. The news made us devastated. We couldn’t believe that our dog is going to live for only a few weeks.
However, there is a way Yennifer can live longer. The veterinarian said that she could be treated with chemotherapy, but the cost of the treatment cost around 5,000 dollars which is way too much for my mom to pay. After we left, my mom asked many of her friends for money that got us about 250 dollars for Yennifer. My mom works as a freelance massage therapist, but she’s very selective about her clients. I’ve been trying to find a summer job but have no luck getting hired. My brother isn’t old enough to work at a restaurant or a store, so he’s been looking for ways to earn money. Right now the last thing we could do is to sell our stuff we have now, like our desktop computer, tablets, phones, and furniture. The only thing we need to keep is this laptop that I’m using to type this request.
As of now, I have made a Paypal account for this request for the donation. This is my first time asking others for money and I hope someone will look at this. If someone can donate the 5000 dollars in full, Yennifer, my family, and I would be deeply grateful from the bottom of our heart. If there are leftover money from the bill, I would pay it back in full. Again, thank you for reading this and I hope you will donate for Yennifer.
I have a problem and there seems to be no solution. I have a husband that lives in Australia and I’m American, living in Las Vegas. We have been married now for 4 years, on June 26th of this year and we have only lived together 13 months out of that time. I just received my permanent resident visa to go and live in Australia, I was so excited. I was gonna start getting my little fur baby, Remy, all ready with the 7 months of vaccines and blood work he needs to enter Australia and was doing research and realized I will not be able to take him to Australia in the cabin of the plane, nor take him there on a cruise ship nor a freight ship, no way to get him there other than cargo on a plane! WHAT? There is no way I would risk his life in cargo with the luggage on such a long trip! I have been trying with many phone calls and reaching out to different freight ships and asking if anybody will let him travel with me to Australia or New Zealand and nothing is coming of this. So basically I have to either leave him behind and I can’t, he is my baby, Or not be with my husband, this is so heartbreaking! My husband also has been ill for about 4.5 years with an undiagnosed illness. This is such a stressful and hopeless situation. People don’t understand and say,” oh just put the dog in cargo”, but I won’t risk that, no way! Please, I need to raise money to get him there on a private jet, that is the only other way agriculture tell me. Please help us be together with our little Remy so we can all be happy in the land down under, thank you, God Bless! sincerely Chrissy Challen

My name is Omar Jadallah and I am from Jordan
Jordan is an Arab country but I was in Panama and I lived there for more than 10 years. I received a gift on my birthday and it was a dog. But as a whole Arab person I did not like the gift because we taught us in my youth that dogs are harmful and must be discarded. Over time I loved the dog was very beautiful and named Amir. Become a fan of dogs. After my father died, I returned to Jordan to live with my mother. I was very shocked when I saw how people treat dogs and they kill dogs
I was in my house one day and I heard the scream of a small dog and when I came out I found children tying a dog from his neck in an attempt to hang him
The effect of this scene is very sad
She took the dog from them and was young and offered him milk and drank with his passion. I cried and put the dog in my garden but faced a refusal from my grandfather and refused to have the dog. I put him in an abandoned house and became a group of dogs Now I have 48 dogs. But suddenly the owner of the house came back and put poison for the dogs in the food and killed 9 dogs. He then brought a complaint against me and sent dogs out of the house. And dogs have no place to live .. I decided to buy a piece of land to build a house for dogs and look for the largest number of dogs and put them at home. For you I need your help there is no money with me to buy a piece of land and build a house. I need $ 35,000 for this project
I’m sorry I do not speak English and I used Google Translate. I apologize for the mistakes
Olivia is a Border Collie. She is a rescue dog of about 6 years old. An English woman took her from a rescue centre here in Spain. She kept her for about 6 months and then passed Olivia onto an English man who kept her for around 6 months as well. Following which, around 14 months ago he asked me to look after Olivia for one month while he visited the UK. I agreed as at the time I had a large garden and time to walk her and give her the care and attention she deserves. Within a month she had her first ‘fit’. So now I understood why she was being passed around. I took her to the vet and he told me she has epilepsy with fits occurring every few weeks. I have had her now for over the year and changed her diet which has reduced the frequency of her fits. The ‘owner’ who never returned to take Olivia back keeps telling me just one more month!
Sadly my circumstances have changed recently, I have lost my job and had to downsize to a small flat with no room for Olivia to run around or be free. The ‘owner’ , when told of this, says just have her put down! But I cannot and will not do that, no chance! I have tried to re-home her locally but her epilepsy puts people off.
However, my brother owns a kennels in Dorset, UK, and he also takes in old dogs into his own home. This would be a an ideal solution both for Olivia and I. Herein lies my problem and why I am asking for help. Currently I have her in kennels and already owe them 200 Euros, if I don’t pay this would obviously result in problems for myself and the unthinkable for Olivia. In order to sort this out and get her to the UK I need to get her a passport, get all the injections required and have her chipped. I will also have to pay the outstanding kennel fees plus a further 21 days after the injections and then after all that I need to transport her to the UK and her new life. Due to her condition I will have to accompany her.
In total it will cost approximately 2000 Euros! I know this is a lot for a dog, especially as she isn’t even mine! However, I am determined to save Olivia’s life and give her the life she deserves. Please, any dog lovers out there, help me and Olivia if we can. Thank you so much.
This is my cat Pepper who has just turned one year old.
I took her to the vet in February as her gums were red and she was poking her tongue out a lot, and the vet has told me that she will need to have four of her teeth pulled to help stop the infection across her mouth.
My pet insurance covers the vet consultations and the majority of the aftercare medication she will require however does not cover the teeth extractions.
I have already saved half of the $1500 that is required, however just thought I would post as I would love to be able to give her this operation as soon as possible to help it stop causing her pain rather than continuing to wait while I save.
Thank you for reading.
Hello, to all of those that are reading my plea, I’m in desperate need of whatever it is i can gather for my dog Pharoah’s surgery that he will be having next week! At first we were told that he had a slight heart murmur. My dog is currently 7 years old and I’m not wanting to lose him this early. He was the only pup in the litter that I chose to keep and he was the only one with beautiful white paws that almost look like socks. I don’t want to imagine what it would be like to not have him in the backyard causing havoc all over the grass with his toys we spoil him with whenever we get a chance! My dog was just diagnosed with mitral valve disease and the surgery costs are not something that we have the funds for at this time. I work two jobs to maintain my 2 younger sisters and brother as well. I care for them as if they are my own kids and I know that this surgery will prolong the time we have with my dog at least for a little while longer to stay in all of our lives. Please, please whatever can be donated is greatly appreciated! Thank you so much in advance and bless you.
Georgie is a 7 year old British Shorthair.
She was recently diagnosed with feline asthma and she suffers daily with coughing attacks.
It breaks my heart to see her like this and the vet bills are getting higher and higher. The latest bill was over $3,000 with ongoing visits for medication and consultation costing almost $400 per visit!
I am doing my best to pay these bills, however the ongoing costs are a strain and I wondered if you can find it in your hearts to donate so that Georgie’s treatment can continue and she can have a happier life with being able to breathe better.
I thank you so much in advance.
I am in desparate need of some financial help caring for these cats.
They all need to be neutered and get their shots.
I live on a fixed SS income and with my latest rent increase and everything else that has increased over this last year I am at the point where I can no longer pay all the bills and feed myself and the cats. There is no local help for this neither for pet food or vet care. The best available is a vet clinic that will nueter and give shots for about $60 each. Plus some asdditional fees for testing and worming. Rabies is required here in Texas. There is no way I can come up with the amount needed have been trying for over a year.
My intention is to eventually find good indoor homes for most of these cats. But I can’t in good conscience do that until they are neutered and have all shots and worming done.
The amount I am looking at now is around $2000 for vet, 6 more cages, fuel to drive the 86 miles to clinic and back 3 times and food/litter.
Please help if at all possible. I don’t want to see these cats killed at some shelter here. If I can’t care for them no one else around here will. People locally act like cats even pedigreed cats are a disposable item. This attitude breaks my heart.
Priapos is a retired thoroughbred racehorse that had his full career until he was 7 years old. Afterwards, he was given to me to have him for a riding horse. I have him for 7 years, and we have gone through so many things together. The person I have become is because of this horse. He has taught me how to love, how to fight and how to be a kind person. He is the most important soul in my life.
Even though my dad used to help me with the economics he got really sick and can not work anymore so I am in a terrible economic situation right now. I work 12 hours a day but i do not make enough money for both of me and Priapos.
I am not going to give him away or thow him in a field as some people do with theis animals! I will fight for him in order to have everything he needs.
For that I need your help to keep going. Even 1 euro can help me feed him one more day. I am relying on your kindness to help Priapos have food and a place to live for the next years.

Hi everybody. I am not used to asking strangers for financial help. So this is all kind of new to me. But the thing is I have been unemployed for the past four months now and I have kind of been struggling financially ever since. But it is not me who needs help right now, it is my dog. He was born with cleft palate. His nose is all crooked and whatnot and that is actually the reason I fell in love with him in the first place. He has brought me a lot of joy and I could not ask for a better pet. Or friend for that matter. I am sure all pet owners know what I am talking about. But anyway, the problem is that six of his teeth are starting to decay. I am not sure why they have started to decay but maybe his previous owners did not take good enough care of him. Although I have no idea. But anyway, his teeth are causing him a significant amount of pain and they are making making his breath stink really bad. All these teeth have to be removed according to the vet but because I am unemployed right now I can´t really afford to pay for the surgery. According to the vet total surgery cost will be about 800$. I know that is a lot of money and I am not expecting to get help with the full amount, but any amount, big or small, would be greatly appreciated. My paypal account is firstname.lastname@example.org. And as I said, any amount would help and would be greatly appreciated. Along with this post you can see a photo of my dog and his adorable face and his crooked nose. Thanks for your time and have a wonderful day.
Hello there and thank you for taking the time to read our story
My fiance’ and I are trying to raise enough money to move into an apartment nearby. Although we have faced many challenges during the time we have been a couple, we believe those challenges have only made our bond stronger. Between us, we have five dogs; each with their own story, all rescues who were in dire need of a good home with loving humans. We will not break up our wonderful furry family. As many of you may be aware, not many places will rent to people with one dog, let alone FIVE! But we have FOUND A PLACE! My fiance’ is between jobs right now, looking every day. I am a retired teacher, forced onto disability after a bad car accident. I currently work a ten hour a week job at a local church, which gives me the satisfaction of being to help others but at a pace that is comfortable for my pained body.
My fiance’s mother agreed to let us stay in one of the three apartments that comprise her house. The agreement was that we would renovate and fix everything with our own income, she would then deduct all supply costs from our rent and then eventually we would start paying rent. This was a great idea in theory, however, although I was aware of the abusive nature she had towards her son, I did not know the extent of it. She is verbally and emotionally abusive towards my fiance’ and she encourages this behavior towards him in her other three, older children.
We have been ‘living’ here without water, toilet, shower or kitchen access. We only have heat and electricity. At first, this was ok because we are both outdoorsy, survivor-type people who can make do or invent ways around problems. He hauls fresh water in jugs for drinking and cooking in our makeshift kitchen area. We can clean our dishes by heating up water in the coffee maker. Our toilet is a five gallon bucket with a toilet seat made specifically for five gallon buckets! He empties it down his mother’s toilet each day. He showers in her shower stall and I shower at a local gym, where I purchased a membership simply to be able to use their shower facilities. All in all, this could be a fine living situation for us because we knew it would be a temporary situation without water access BUT we continually feel like we are under attack. This started about the third week into being here.
Each time my fiance’ goes over to do the water or our bucket, he is verbally accosted. His mother is insulting and vicious to him and talks of his siblings as if they can do no wrong. The irony of all of this is that the very siblings who can do no wrong are in much trouble financially and in their relationships. The last straw was when his oldest sibling came over in the night and sabotaged the snow blower. We have video evidence of him messing with the machine and sure enough, the next day it did not work. It has gotten to the point where we sleep very little, feel stressed and anxious all the time, constantly worry about our vehicles sitting outside and worry about leaving the house for even five minutes to run to the grocery store.
We don’t want trouble. We would just like to find some peace. My fiance’ and I both know and understand that his family has a lot of pain which has led to unhealthy relationships and behaviors. His father died from exposure to Agent Orange while in Vietnam when my fiance’ was just 19 months old. His mother was brought over from Vietnam and she never really learned how to fit in or live here. She has holed herself up into her home and started some serious hoarding shortly after her husband’s death. She had no interest in raising my fiance or his slightly older sibling. The two eldest siblings were already adults when my fiance’ was born. The whole situation is really very sad and I do feel for them, but we can not allow them to take us down into their angry, hurtful places.
We make enough money to be able to pay our rent, utilities and food. We haven’t had the means to save enough on such short notice to get into this apartment where the owner is fine with our family of dogs. And just to top everything off, my car broke down at the local Walmart last week and needs a new starter.
We need to come up with $1,700 dollars for the deposit on the apartment by March 1, 2015. My next payday is March 11 and I will get my car fixed then, so that is not a worry right now. We have faith that somehow we will be able to come up with the deposit and get out of here. If you feel moved and can afford to spare a dollar or two, please know it will be greatly appreciated by myself, my fiance’ and our five Weewees (our silly nickname for our dogs).
Please know that we both strongly believe in paying it forward and we will do just that as we can and when we can.
To each of you who reads this, I wish you peace, love and light,
C & T
My best friend “Xena”( pictured below) is in need of a life saving operation but I cannot afford the hefty vet bills to have this done. She has been diagnosed with Anterior uveal melanomas (tumour of the eye) and needs her eye removed before it spreads through the bloodstream to the lungs and visceral organs.
I’m personally in the process of recovering from Stage 3a breast cancer (yes it does happen to males too), which has taken a massive toll on my body and mind. Due to the extended period I’ve had off sick (due to chemo) I was unable to keep up with my house payments and hence had to sell my house recently. By the time the outstanding loan amount was paid out I was left with nothing from selling the house. All my reserve money has been spent and I’m now living with my parents who only have a basic pension to live off.
I recused Xena and her brother Dusty from a puppy farm that was being closed down by the RSPCA due to the poor conditions the breeder was operating under. Unfortunately last Christmas Xena lost her brother Dusty to the neighbours setting off firecrackers, scaring the life out of him and he ran down the back yard and hit the fence with enough force to cause brain damage. He passed away 2 weeks latter due to the excessive damage to the brain.
Xena has been the centre of my world and I would be heart broken even more if I can’t get the money together to pay for her operation. I’m super ashamed I’ve had to lower down to this level of asking for money online but I will do whatever it takes to get my buddy well again and it will help with my recovery. Stress is bad for cancer and this situation is freaking me out. I also suffer from a general anxiety disorder so all this is not helping.
All help is appreciated and please leave a note so I can contact you to personally thank you.
I am a young autistic woman living with severe anxiety and battling depression. The one light in my life is my 3 year old cat. I rescued her from under a porch after she was abandoned at 6 weeks old. She has been the most amazing addition to my life. I’ve lived my life being misunderstood, bullied, and put down for being so much different than my peers. My disability is mostly invisible so the social deficiencies I struggle with have always been very isolating. I pay my bills by being an artist, and a lot of times struggle just to make ends meet at the beginning of every month. The one thing I always have is food and treatment for my kitty. My cat is the most important thing to me in my life. She keeps me so happy and makes me feel so safe and comfortable in a world that has never let me fit. She is only 3 years old and is suffering now from laryngeal tumors. Without treatment she will die. If I can find the money to treat her she could live a long and healthy life with me. I cant bear the thought of her suffering… But to put her to sleep …she is still almost a kitten, I can’t lose my baby kitty, not after only 3 years with her. She is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I can’t imagine my life without her and her unique personality. She has gotten me through some of the darkest times in my life and always know when I am sad or scared and comes into my lap to cuddle and comfort me. More than any human has ever tried
Please help me. Please donate to help my little baby. She deserves a chance that I can’t give her. The treatment is $1,677
My mom is currently disabled and is on her 3rd appeal for disability. For the past 2 and a half years I have been working a part-time fast food job to barely make ends meet for us. I’m 18 and barely graduated. I work extremely hard to make sure my mother is taken care of. My dog was put down August of 2014, a year ago, due to pancreatic cancer and an incurable case of seborrhea. I feel it’s time to find another companion, a pet rat.
Please consider helping Cindy (and us) with the costs of emergency surgery.
Cindy is a 12 year old Haflinger mare who I unintentionally rescued a year ago. She had rotting feet filled with thrush and needed a lot of veterinary and farrier care to get her back to a normal state.
A few months ago I adopted Cindy out to a woman whom I THOUGHT was a good person. Long story short, I found out they were abusing and beating poor Cindy!! Needless to say I drove the next day over a 13 hour round trip to get Cindy back.
This mare doesnt have a mean bone in her body what so ever. She is a great girl and didn’t diserve any of this.
Since ive had her back, she had a slightly snotty nose that the vet wasn’t concerned about unless it persisted.
Over a month later and her snotty nose continuously got worse, and worse.
Vet came are out and ran a CBC (blood test) on her to see what was going on. She also did a nasal swab and sent everything out for testing.
Results came back that Cindy had mild anemia and a bacteria called strep zooepidemicus.
Vet returned yesterday to take X-rays of Cindy’s head and hopefully get a clearer shot of what’s going on up there.
X-rays revealed what we suspected. Cindy’s one side of her nasal cavity was filled with puss. Hence the consistent snotty nose. They also saw a tooth they suspect may need to be pulled which could also be the cause of all of this.
Spoke with the vet today on options to fix this. They need to extract a tooth rot abcess in the back of Cindy’s mouth as well as drill a hole into her skull and insert a cathedar to drain the puss from her sinus cavity. She will need to be brought to the veterinary clinic for this surgery.
The surgeon doesn’t want to wait much longer on this and wants to do it ASAP. The issue is, the surgery is going to cost between $2,500 and $3,500 total. That’s not even including any of the vet bills she’s incurred prior to this.
The vet also told me that they need to be paid at the time of service prior to her leaving the clinic.
They will not do payments, and need to be paid in full.
I was not expecting this all of a sudden and do not have $3,500 alone.
Im asking for help from friends to help me get Cindy the surgery she needs. I hate to beg, or ask for money but the vet made it clear that they don’t want to wait much longer to do the surgery and want to do it ASAP. But need to be paid at the time of service. And I’ve already paid $1,000+ in vet bills to figure out what was wrong.
Today 8/12/15 I spoke to 3 different vets who all agreed that this is the normal price range for this sort of surgery. They also will not accept payments because I am not an exsisting client. I have been using my current vet for years but I guess their policy is that they need to be paid in full for surgeries.
Please consider helping by either sharing or donating.
Thank you so much.

I can not believe I am having to do this but, we have lost so much already so I am swallowing my pride & asking for help to save our very much loved family pet.
Our dog needs an urgent operation to remove a large lump from her belly. The vets are not sure what exactly it is yet, we simply don’t have the funds to find out. They just told us it needs to be checked out asap. She also needs to be de-sexed asap. So we would love to get everything done at the same time to advoid extra stress on our beloved dog “Brandy”. She is such a sweet young girl (9mths old) who is a perfict fit for our family. Our 1yr old daughter loves her so much, I can not bear the thought of having to take that away from her. We have lost our other dog when our house was broken into a few weeks ago, he was only doing his job by being a guard dog & he had his head bashed in for it by the heartless people who broke in. We lost so much but it was our dog “nick” that hurt the most. We can live without TV, laptop etc but i cant bear to lose our daughters dog ‘Brandy’. So Please if you can help us get our dog treated please please help. I know this may never be seen by some one who can & is willing to help. But i owe it to my family to at least try. I just hope we can find help in time before it gets any worse, looks like it may be a cancer lump, Its growing from the inside. Please help
Thank you for taking the time to read.
Thank you for any help you can provide
On Sunday April 19th the neighbours dog jumped my fence and bit a hole in my Boston terrier, I had just woke up and let the dogs out to pee, I turned to go back to the kitchen and I heard a lot of noise coming from the back yard and Leslie (my Terrier) came running in the house with a large gash in her side. I was in such a panic I didn’t even look outside to see what had happened. I took the dog straight to the emergency vet. When I returned home my neighbour said my dog antagonizes his dog by barking in the yard. I took her in and they patched her together that was on Sunday. Monday I took her to my regular vet and keep her on IV’s for the day. I brought her home and never let her out of my sight. Friday on the way home from work I noticed the stitches were opening up. Saturday I took her back to my Vet and he said I needed to just wash out the hole with solution until Monday and they would have to do surgery again. Sunday night all the stitches came out. I ran her back to the emergency room to see what they could do for her. The Vet on duty said all the skin around the wound was dead and infection had started from the dead skin. I could see where the skin was already thin and wouldn’t hold stitches. That night the vet cut a 6″ hole in the side of my dog and told me to return her to my vet in the morning to have the dressing changed. When I went after work to pick her up my vet said there is nothing they can do for her there I had to take her to the Veterinary Hospital. She has to stay there for a week. I’ve already spend 2,16.00 at the emergency room on 2 surgery’s Now the Hospital wants 5,000.00 for the next surgery. I contacted my neighbour about his dog. He removed the dog from his property and told animal control since I didn’t see it happen he thinks it must have been a wild animal in the yard. I’ve been so upset over my dogs health, and worried about how I’m going to pay for this. I don’t know if anyone reading this can understand how much a person loves their dogs. When I went through my divorce and couldn’t see my children everyday, I had Leslie to come home to. When I didn’t think anyone on this earth cared about me. Leslie did. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve thought to myself if I would have just looked in the yard before I left her out, she wouldn’t be so sick. If your reading this and can send me even $5.00 to help with medical bills I would greatly appreciate it. If you can say a prayer on Leslies behalf I would greatly appreciate that too. Thank you Bruce
This is crazy, I know! Flea is a two month old black kitten with beautiful green eyes and loving personality. I was fortunate enough to find him wandering the streets of an industrial estate malnourished, hungry and looking very unwell. Not only this but he was in a very dangerous enviroment used by industrial traffic rushing past whilst Flea was trying his best to eat plastic rubbish on the side of the road.
Being a totally stray kitten, he had had no human contact. I have spent the last month spending as much of my spare time as possible with him, in a bid to build up the trust he so clearly didn’t have in humans.
Now we are inseparable. He follows me into every room, sleeps on my chest and enjoys helping me in the garden and playing jungle cat. Not only do we have a lovely relationship but he is in amazing health and growing fast into a great tom cat.
My wish is to now take him home to the UK. Where I can give him a great home to live out the rest of his days in a comfortable and spacious place.
I have been working like crazy to raise the money myself to afford my own flight and his. Sadly time is running out and it looks as though I won’t be able get the money needed .
Like I said, I know this sounds crazy! But not trying would be worse. All I can do is try my best and ask for help and support.
Thank you for reading my story and I thank you for any help you may be able to give.
Hi, as everyone knows, times in South Africa is hard nowadays. Everyday 100’s of dogs, cats and puppies, are just being dumped on our roads. Left in boxes in the middle of roads, dumping them next to the free ways. Leaving them on the street to starve, ect. My heart goes out to these poor animals. We don’t have enough animal shelters, so animals are being put to sleep everyday to make space for new ones that’s coming in. Now here’s the thing. These animal shelters are actually looking for homes, and if the animal don’t get adopted soon, they put him/her down. And that’s where my heart brakes. We can’t actually stop people from doing this. And we can’t actually prevent them from not getting their animals fixed. To stop this overpopulation. There isn’t much laws for this. Dogs being abused. Thrown out like they meant nothing to some humans. I want to start my own animal shelter. But funding is poor. Getting loans with our new credit laws is complicated. If anyone is out there having the love for animals as much as I do. Please help the animals. I don’t want to just start another animal shelter. No! I want to provide a permanent home for these animals. Where they will be loved and fed on a daily basis until the end. But for that one needs one big plot. I’m speaking big enough for like lots and lots of animals. Everything else I will do on my own cost. Fixing them. Not provide further breeding. Feeding them. With lots of people providing them with love, and playing with them. This was my biggest dream my whole life. Sometimes your dreams can not become true, because of money issues. If anyone out there can help donate money, making this dream become reality. I would be the happiest person alive. And these animals will be in their best care ever!
Recently my young 5 year old dog Marley, golden retriever, has been getting sicker and sicker, with a lot of pain in his backside. This pain was causing him to loudly whine and severely hurt when he starts to run, climb up stairs, and even play outside with me and the entire family. I did not know what else to do other than to take him to the vet, being as worried as I was. The vet decided to run some tests, X-rays, and checked everything out, and then diagnosed him with hip dysplasia. He proceeded to tell us that the only way he will be able to fully enjoy being able to do the things he loved to do before was to have a femoral head excision / osteotomy. My dog is still very young, being only 5, and I would never want to take away anything from him. Especially him being able to enjoy his life the way he should. He makes our whole family just smile and everybody that meets him just simply falls in love with him and how gentle he is. Although recently he hasn’t been as active as he should be due to him hurting so much. It hurts me deeply to see my baby in so much pain. When the vet told me that the bill to perform this surgery could cost anywhere up to $1500 to $2500, I got very worried.. I’m not asking for that much, because I do have a small side job that I’m saving up about $$25 to $50 a month on for that surgery. All I’m asking for is a small donation or at least for you to share my story so I can have my baby boy the proper care he needs. Thank you so much for your time and it really means a lot..
Hello! my name Is Andrè, I am a 23 year old male from Norway who now struggles with my finances and hope that maybe some kinds souls out here would pay for the food/items my puppies need so I can start getting back up on my feet. This really Is my last place to ask, I want you to understand that I will go to great lengths before I stop giving my puppies what they need, but it really strains on my economy to the point where I don’t eat well, and that Is kind of what I am asking help with. My puppies are of the race griffon petit brabancon / bruxellois, small playful “family dogs” that are really smart and just a wonderful being.
The reason I am In lack of money Is due to damage on my left shoulder witch I got at my job. I worked as a truck driver and made good money when I decided I wanted my pups, after my injury I got severely depressed and used most of the money i had left to buy one, then the other after about 6 months and ever since my depression faded away, no matter how much pain I go trough on a daily basis. I long for my job, but I still have a long way to go training my shoulder back up to the point where i can use It on a daily basis, If I am lucky I will be back up and running in 6 months!
The picture Is of my 2 dogs from about the past 2 months, I broke my mobile phone and lost the rest sadly. If any one want some more picutres I can email what I have! I hope this Is not much to ask for. And I have not really set a price as every dollar will help. Food It self Is not to expensive, 20 dollars would probably do for a month atleast, but toys are getting shredded every hour! they are some vial beasts when they play! Other then that I want to say thank you, If you help me out.
My cat is 2 years old. Last week she got shot by my drunk neighbour . She was shot with a pellet gun and is now in the The veterinary Intensive Care. They have to operate on her, but I don’t have to money to get the operation for her. I asked the vet for a discount, and he said that the least he could let me pay would be $100. So, I am asking you guys, please help me. I am working to get some money to pay, but I fear I won’t make it in time. Please help me save Tyler.
I’ve had Tyler for 2 years now. She was abandoned at birth. I found her in the street when she was still a very small kitten. I had to feed her milk through a bottle until she no longer needed it. I love her very much and don’t know what I would do without her. She became like a family member to me. I’d be happy with any donation.
Hi, my name is Chino, I am a 2 year old Yorkshire Terrier; on 11/8/14 I was diagnosed with a stage one Mast Cell Tumor that is cancerous on the right side of my head near the eye; Dr. Kathleen W. Gruss at Earlysville Animal Hospital in Earlysville, Virginia says it is very important that the tumor be removed or it could grow large enough to block the pathway of important nutrients and put pressure on my organs. This would then result in death if not treated by surgery soon.
My owner Stephanie was very upset when Dr. Gruss gave her the results after we both expected to have a healthy check-up visit. She was hoping maybe the lump was a really bad bug bite.
I’ve been living with financial difficulty ever since I got laid off from my job in 2012. During that time until today I been from employed for a very short period of time to unemployed again. The two jobs I worked were temporary positions. You would think I could find a decent job with a college degree in business/finance and previous work history. But it has not been that easy and I will not give up. I also lost my home and car along with Chino health benefits because I could not keep up with the payments. I tried getting a loan/line of credit but my debt:ratio and time on the job I could not get approved.
Chino is like my child and I love him very much all I can do is pray that someone will read my story to help him.
I am really embarrassed that it has come to me reaching out to strangers just to save Chino’s life. I have always been a very independent person and would be the one that helped others in their time of need. I do know that others might think this is not important because they don’t have a dog or feel like he is not a human being . I understand because you sometimes have to be a animal lover to know how this really feels.
I have lost family members to cancer and its a very progressive/annoying disease and just to see someone go through the suffering is not easy; along with losing your love one is even worse when you can’t do anything to help them.
Thank you and please share with anyone.
Hello and thank you very much for clicking on my advert. This is the first time I’ve done this I am a 36 year old English male. I have previously been homeless and out of work struggled a lot. Currently I am house/pet sitting which is unpaid but I get free accomodation.
The last thing I wanted to do was to use this website but unfortunately I’m just out of other options at the moment. I really hope that i can find a person or people willing to help me out.
I’m looking after 3 dogs and need to buy them food. The stuff they buy is about 30 pounds for a big bag dried food and then some frozen food bags they are about £5.
I’m here for three months I’m running short already and guessing I’m going to need to do this twice so my estimate is that if I had 90 pounds the bare minimum that may cover me for this sit.
It’s give or take whether I have enough money to feed myself I might need about 30 pounds to guarantee that. So the total amount of money I need to raise is probably 120 that might just do it, and give me the sanity I need.
I wouldn’t post here and If I am lucky enough to get the amount I need I’ll be removing this ad asap as I really didn’t want to have to do this. Theirs a picture ive taken of one of the empty bags of the frozen stuff.
This is such a nightmare I’m a legitimate person and If you can help me you have no idea how grateful I am to you. I hope you understand and thanks so much for reading).
First, i am from Germany. I’m 20 years old, my english is not that great and i’m ill.
I got strong Depression, since i was 7.
One year ago i had a Boyfriend. He was really mean, i left my home to live with him.
A few month later he kicked me out. In this time i fell in love with Syrikit. She was my Cat, my best friend.
He allowed me to take her with me, and i did. I went back to my mothers home started a therapy and.. Syrikit was the only one who was there for me. I loved her so much, she was everything for me.
I cant work at the moment. I have panic attacks when i’m outside, i dont know if you know what i mean.
I cry, i scream, i tremble and feel really bad. And i’m really working on this problem!
Anyway.. the Story how she died is pretty simple, she was ill i went to the veterinarian, not only once. She had a op and i hoped that she’ll get better again. But it got worse and worse.. and i tried everything for her, i wanted to save her but we couldnt.. So, after a Week.. my mom said it’s time, and on Sunday, 21.12.2014 we had to euthanzie her.
Now i’m here with a 500€ Bill and sure it’s my own fault but.. even when 200 People spend 1€ or 1 Dollar.. it would be really helpfull.
I was so motivated to help her and i wanted to work for her when everything is fine. But now.. i just dont know what to do. My Depression gots worse and worse every day not only because i miss her, it’s becasue all those.. stupid things that happend. And i really hope that some nice humans will help me, just a little bit..
She was a beautiful cat, my best friend and i really loved her.. but i cant take this
Please help me..
My cat and myself will be evicted because I haven’t had a long term job in a long time. I got my cat free two years ago when a friend had to let him go because it was getting a complex from other pets in that house. I moved to a different city three years ago in hopes of a long term job and relationship. Neither worked out. I’ve been with countless employment agencies and that would only give and average of 10 days a month of work. I have lost all friends due to the controlling relationship which my naive and trusting ways found out too late.
On top of that, I have child support payments for two children that have not been paid and I cant prolong payments any longer. If you know what the government does, they have seized what they can from me and are now threatening with a jail sentence.
I have always wanted to support mine including the cat however, never had the chance. A lot of people say you make your own luck. I simply can not believe that when every chance I try hard, something always bad happens. Depressing.
I go to jail but I don’t know about the cat. I need $50 000 to get a life back and start over. For the umpteenth time in life. Even if a lump sum is not available, I will humbly take $1000 or $100 from many donors just live day by day and know the cat is warm. I can’t even type anymore knowing that this is a useless beg.
My senior dog has a yeast/bacteria skin infection that is consuming his body. I don’t know if I’m taking him to the wrong vet or what but I spent over $400 in a 2 month time for medicated shampoo he had to take every 2 days, fish oil, his steroid and antibiotic medicine. I took him to a different vet prior to this last one with no results at all. I’ve also had to switch his food from a cheaper brand to now a $10.00 bag and he needs 2 bags a week. Financially I have become tapped out. I have a lot of my shoulders as far as getting my daughter through nursing school, paying bills, barely keeping food on the table etc. I have had this dog since he was born and was always able to maintain him without any problems. With this situation and everything I’m going thru I’m asking for help. Sometimes we have no choice but to ask for help and that is where I’m at. Please help me, help him. No senior dog should have to live with this. I’m asking for up to $800 because his skin is so much worst and has now spread to his ears. I paid $400 in a 2 month time so I’m guessing it will be double that. If after everything if he is better and there is funding left, (which I doubt) I will donate to my local animal shelter. By no means am I looking to profit from his misfortune!
I’m asking for money not for myself, but to save an amazing animal.
There is a Clydesdale yearling for sale from a meat factory. If he’s not sold by Christmas, he will be sent to be turned into dog-food, and he is only roughly one year of age.
It is a proven fact that every day in processing plants, horses come to a terrifying death. They see their pen-mates shot in the head less than a meter in front of them before being dragged off the be processed. The thought that this loving boy will meat that end is unbearable to me.
Despite my efforts I have been unable to raise money, or find him someone who will buy him. I can care for him, and since I have contacts in the industry I can pay off any needs he may have when he arrives… I just can’t pay for him.
What I’m asking from someone generous is to donate his sale price $1650AUD, if you’re feeling giving this year any extra would go to his needs, but just his price would save his life. I’m begging you… could you please be my Christmas miracle, and his?
Hello, my 2 year old yorkie is in need of urgent surgery. I need to raise about $ 600 to complete the amount due for his surgery. I’m paying the other half because for some reason the insurance he has wont cover it. It might seem irrational to ask for this but he is everything i have. Please anything would help. Anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much And god bless.
