This is Oscar my daughter Emily & her children's Shnoodle
2 days ago, this little furry bundle of fun escaped the house when a visitor arrived, running out of the front door & across the road to the opposite neighbours property to run up & down their wrought iron fence barking excitedly at the neighbours two dogs who were also barking at him (naturaly)
The dogs owner came out & shot Oscar in the side with a high powered BB gun! This happened as my daughter & friend were racing across the road to collect him!
Little Oscar is now fighting for his life & the veterinary bill is climbing by the day, $1428.88 and rising. My daughter is in some financial difficulty after a move with her two small children from her original home to a new area after her partnership broke down recently & her business has taken a bit of a dive in this sad economic climate. She is finding it hard to make ends meet but is just able to make her bill payments & keep their heads above water (We are so proud of her) but this new crisis is going to stretch things beyond her limit. The vet will not break down the payments for her & expects the bill to paid in full. If it hadn't have been such a dire emergency she would have chosen a more understanding veterinary surgery & taken Oscar somewhere else but of course she didn't know the vet would be unbending & can't move Oscar now.
This is not something either my daughter or I would do in normal circumstances, it feels like we are begging but as a mum I will do anything to help & seeing as my funds are limited & I live in the UK, my daughter in USA California this seemed the best idea I could come up with, asking my dear family & friends to find it in their hearts to help Oscar & Emily in these stressful circumstances.
Any amount you can donate, no matter how small will help enormously & Emily will then be more able to carry the rest of the cost. Believe me, we will be eternally grateful & forever humbled. We are blessed to have you all in our lives.
