I’ve fallen on hard times. A series of unfortunate events occurred simultaneously and I’m in desperate need of a short term loan.
I’ve been employed for 13 years at the same company and I have lived modestly within my means, however after a car breakdown (alternator) and tire damage (nails in road), my two puppies had medical issues that set me back after paying all my bills this month including rent.
I have no problem living off ramen and smart simple dishes like grilled cheese sandwiches as long as my dogs have their proper dog food. But I have reached my limit and absolutely need funds for two separate medical issues for Dunks (10 year old jack Russel rat terrier) and Rufio (1 year old jack Russel mix).
Last week old man Dunks started having pain. Turns out one of his teeth got infected and I need to have it removed. This is a touchy subject because at 10 years old and with a heart murmur, the procedure is sketchy in regards to knocking him out and removing the tooth. It’s very possible there will be no complications but even so… the cost will be roughly $800. Without it… he lives in constant agony. I cant bare to euthanize him over a sore tooth… or to see him in so much pain. We have been family since he was born. I’m distraught.
Now on top of this… Dunks 1 year old baby brother from another mother, Rufio, has always been susceptible to ear infections. And, despite careful and diligent grooming and care… he has a pretty severe ear infection simultaneously while Dunks tooth infection is happening.
This has all occurred in the past 2 weeks. Today I covered all my bills and rent… bought just bare necessity of food (ramen…grilled cheese makings… some veggies and proper dog food).
The total cost for Dunk’s tooth removal procedure and Rufio’s ear medicine will come to $1200.
Now. If this begging for money site cannot assist with this vet bill, I will most likely sell my car. I’m begging for funds because I have already racked up $10k in various loans and debts over the years, and have no family or friends financially able to assist me. I do NOT deserve any charity. I’ve dug this hole myself. Losing my car will be devastating for a while, but I will at least have my two best friends healthy by my side. That is all that matters. This is just a last ditch effort for some cash. There are people with way bigger problems… and make no mistake I understand that fact and reality.
Any funding would be appreciated. But, I’ve never received a personal donation and do not expect this to work out at all.
I’ve done this to myself. I could have been more responsible and prevented this from happening to myself and my boys. We will get through this one way or another. But if I could magically get $1200 (or even just clear my $10k debt and break even at this stage in my life)… that would be amazingly life altering.
It’s worth a shot. Right?
Thanks for even reading this. It helps knowing at least someone considered it.
