My husband died and left me with a lot of loving memories and years of joy to hold on to when times are hard. He also left with me bills to pay and mouths to feed. The problem we are having right now is that I can no longer afford to the place we have been living. I have looked for something in my price range that will allow me to keep the pets and I am not having any luck. ( I did find one place in a 55 plus community, but they wouldn't take the teenagers.) I have had these dogs and the cat for their whole life. I don't think it is right for me to abandon them. Dasha ( the long haired husky} is 13 years old. Spirit and Raggs are each 7 years old. They are senior citizens who need to be protected and cared for. The cat, Fred, is a rescue so his age is undetermined, I don't need big, I don't need fancy, I just need something that will work for us. I think my best option is to be able to purchase a home where no one can dictate the number or size of my pets. In the very least, if I can pay to stay here in this house a bit longer, maybe things will change for us financially. While I do not intend to get anymore animals, I would like to be able to care for the ones that I have had since well before my husband got cancer.
I do feel kind of bad about asking for money like this when there are people who are fighting for their lives or the lives of their children or someone else they love. I just didn't feel I had an option at this time. If you do make a donation please make a note as to whether you would like me to pay it back or pay it forward. If you want to be paid back tell me where to send payments. If you want me to pay it forward, tell me if you would like me to fund someone else or contribute to a charity.
