Stevie is my life long furry friend and is the reason I am still alive today. She began her life on the streets, living in a hole with her other siblings. She was covered in tics and flees and would not have survived much longer.
During Covid my mental health took a turn for the worst and made leaving the house almost and performing simple daily tasks almost impossible. It impacted my work which in turn impacted my visa status. I now have no other option but to leave Thailand as soon as possible. Thankfully, my mental health is improving. Its still a daily battle but I'm not giving up the fight.
When I saw a picture of her on the Internet, this tiny little puppy, I knew I had to help her. I also knew she could help me. I have suffered with major depression and anxiety for many years and simple daily life can be very difficult.
Stevie gives me a reason to keep going. A reason to wake up each day and fight my depression and anxiety. I know that if stevie I by my side and can achieve anything.
The reason I am asking you all for help is that I am moving from Thailand to Cambodia to work at an amazing school, teaching young Cambodian children but due to covid restrictions, moving Stevie is becoming extremely challenging as land boarders are still closed and many airlines have stopped allowing pets to travel. She will have to be driven across country, fly as cargo and then driven across Cambodia. As you can imagine, this is very expensive and my small teacher wage simply isn't enough.
Leaving my dog is not and option. I made a promise that I would never leave her and she would always have a loving home with me by her side.
We need each other to survive this roller-coaster called life. Without her I have no doubt that I wouldn't be here today. She senses my pain and comforts me and let's me know that everything will be OK.
Please can you find it in your heart to help me get my best friend to Cambodia. No gift is too small. This is a final cry for help, I have ran out of options and am running out of time.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story. I am eternally grateful to each and every person out there. It takes a village to raise a family and I'm asking for the villagers help now. I can not live without my best friend.
Unfortunately, because I live in Thailand it won't allow me to link my PayPal account. If you find it in your heart to help then please private message for details.
