Thank you for reading my appeal. I feel very bad for having to ask because I have always taken care of all my dogs' needs myself, with the help of my husband, but their quality of life is more important than my pride.
My husband and I own a large property and I work as a dog trainer full time, so dogs are my life. Over the years we have taken on nine rescue dogs and provided, we think, a great quality of life for them. The problem came in when my husband lost his job several months ago. Now his savings are used up and things are looking bleak, as a dog trainer I don't make a lot of money, its a job I do for love.
My husband and I made the decision to sell our house and relocate to a place where there is work for him. I am just asking for some temporary help to care for our dogs until the money from the sale of our house comes in and we can start getting back on our feet.
We are managing to keep up with buying our dogs' food but I am asking for help with their other expenses. Some of our dogs require medication and the costs of products like dewormers and tick and flea preventatives are high. Some of our dogs are due for vaccinations and one needs to be spayed.
Please help us to raise the money to give our dogs the care they deserve over the next two months. Thank you and God bless you.
Our dogs are Hagan, the Labrador, Strega, Faolan and Weylyn, the border collies, Ozzy, the border collie cross, Freya, the whippet cross, Xandria and Arya, the terrier crosses and Fjordi the min pin mix. Some of these dogs were rescued from horrific circumstances and I want them to have nothing but the best for the rest of their lives.
