Bring Nemo home!

Update posted by Melissa Abell On Feb 02, 2013

Ok so I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that sent well wishes and support. I am really late in updating things on nemo so here goes. Nemo was able to fly home with the funds that I was able to raise and with a little bit of help from my family in what they where able to pull together. Nemo flew home from Edinburgh on December 7th 2012 and arrived at Dulles International Airport where we drove to collect him. he was happy and healthy when he arrived and we have been setteling in nicely. he has been dealing with some separation anxiety issues but other than that is still the good boy that he tries to be most of the time. he is enjoying being home and playing in our back garden with my parents dog kayla. I really appreciate all of the support and well wishes in bringing him home. Thank you to all who have helped so very much.

Well Nemo is still at the Boarding Kennel in Edinburgh! I found a pet mover that offered to move him for a lot less than my original trusted company and with any Luck I will be able to get him home soon. The new Company is Extraordinair in Edinburgh and they have given me a quote of $1800.00 to fly him home. The boarding Kennel is saying that is is good and is enoying walks everyday and lots of attention. I greatly miss him and have been working as many hours as possible to earn money to bring him home. All I want is to be reunited with my doggy boy as he is a son to me. I hope that people can find it in their hearts to donate but I am working just as hard to earn his fee as well.

I wanted to let everyone know what has been going on since the last update.

Nemo is back staying in a boarding kennel, and is due to be moved to London to make it easier to fly him out as soon as I finish raising the needed funds to fly him home. I am now working directly with a London agent to Animal Land Pet Movers, Tracey who is helping me save on his shipping amount in every way possible. I am know working on the challenge of finding Nemo a place to board in the London area that is safe, Licensed, and affordable so that I can know that my boy is safe and just waiting for me to bring him home. I have made this an ongoing fundraiser in order to help raise as much as I can along with what  iearn in my paychecks from my new job. I will get my first check in the beginning of November. I have talked with the kennel owner where nemo is currently staying and have been told that he is being a good boy but is missing his family, I am really missing him and just want to get him home as soon as possible. I want to send out many thanks to those who have donated and for those that may still, I greatly appreciate any and all help in bringing my boy home.

Well I heard tonight that I got hired back at my old job and I start with my orientation on monday. now I just need to get as many hours as possible so that I can put every penny I make towards bringing my bubby boy nemo home to me. So far nemo is fine from the updates that I have gotten, he is going to be staying at the bording kennel for a little bit until I can get him transported to London to await flying out to come home to me. I miss him so much, ot os 5 am my time and I am having a lot of trouble getting any sleep.

I just wanted to post what I know as of now in the progress of everything, I so far have manages to get a job interview for tomorrow and with any luck that will help me to start right away so I can get a paycheck fast to put towards nemo's expense on coming home. Barbara at Animal Land Pet Movers is working to help me find a new temporary accomidation for nemo as my friends have start preparing for their exams and Idon't want to stress them out anymore than necessary. right now nemo is displaying some separation anxiety signs but he is being given plenty of attention and soothing words and care from my friends to try to comfort him. My dad hd luna taken to the vet as I could not afford the full cost of the vet appointment and he was able to get a discount that made it possible for him to afford, she has a suspected eye tumor and will have to been seen by a specialist. otherwise she is healthy and in good spirits. we are working with them to help pay for the cost of the specialist to confirm the diagnosis. I think that is all as of now. I will update more as  iam able to learn more.

I so hope you get him back quickly. Have you tried contacting a British newspaper to take up the story? Any publicity would help. I only saw this by chance so it's not widely known here.
