24 Paws and Two Feet – we need a bit of rescuing

Update posted by Renee Lamoureux On May 16, 2019

On tenterhooks I await two interview opportunities for jobs I equally desire.

Bearing in mind, I still have to find a place to live and submit rental and pet deposits on a new home, plus purchase a few things I'll need to live (like a bed!) and sort out moving expenses.

I am quite seriously terrified that I won't find a place / get approval for moving in six pets too. I keep looking though.

Again, I am very grateful to all of my friends, my friends' friends, my friends' families and to a few kind strangers who have been able to help us out. You're incredible and sweet and amazing!

Still no further prospects on jobs or places to live. The house in England may still be an option, but the owners have not decided what they will do yet. *fingers crossed*

Anyone have a vacant home they want occupied for a while? Or have a line on a job? Preferably in Learning and Development or in Desktop Publishing. However, I have also been applying for all sorts of jobs. trying to not be too picky anymore.

My hope still reigns high, but it's getting a bit scary now.

The owner will allow all of us to live there too!!! And the place is perfect for us.

I have been getting rather sceptical about finding a place anywhere and this is the first time an opportunity like this has come up.

She is trying to sell the house and will decide if she will rent it instead over the next few months.

I still need to keep raising funds though, so if you can spare anything it will help us immensely! https://bit.ly/2In6PeC

Whether we stay in the Netherlands or cross to the UK, we still have to move our stuff, move ourselves and have enough for damage and pet deposits.

Thank you!!

I have a few more ideas about what to do and where to go, but we can't safely move anywhere until I have raised enough funds or finally get a job (I have been submitting applications for several months, with very little feedback). It's strange to be in this limbo as I can't even pack properly as I have no idea if we'll remain in the Netherlands or we'll go elsewhere.

Fortunately, we are still getting donations, but we need to get closer to the target. If you can spare anything at all, we will put your kindness to good use. Thank you.

Honestly, I do not know what will happen if we can't reach our goal. I don't mind so much where we will live, but that we can all stay together. Even a small place together will suit us fine.

Hi Lynn, Your message just made me cry a bit. You are so kind and your message is so very thoughtful. It is tough not to have any support (except for my people back in Canada and a few here too). Everything is from scratch…but in a foreign language. At least I know enough Dutch to get by (and still learning). Perhaps you are right and my reason for being here was all about the dogs and cats. I like that story better! Maybe I should rename my campaign with ’Notre Dame’ in the title. Tee hee It is true though...some things which acquire more public exposure usually mean more $$$. Thank you for pushing us into 35%!

I totally understand the difficulties associated with having to find work in a new language; I moved from Alberta to Quebec, but unlike you, I had support. Your boyfriend leaving you in a foreign country without any support for you or the animals he brought to your place is not an enviable position, but through our struggles, we find our strength. It seems to me your move to the Netherlands had a higher purpose than just a guy; helping those animals was probably more what the universe or God (whatever you believe) intended. As we all know, the mysteries of God and universe are vast. If people can find it in their hearts to donate over $1 billion to the Notre Dame Cathedral (a building), then surely a small campaign like this, asking to help out a fellow human being and animals in need, is worthy of succeeding.
