Hi, I am Ashley Neal.
I am a web developer and have been out of work for over two years after being laid off from my animal rights nonprofit job. During that time, I’ve started a struggling business, and tried to get a full time job which in itself was a full-time job, and haven’t been able to make enough to get by, despite a lot of help from friends. I have always taken care of myself since I was 17, so this has been a huge blow to me. I have four rescue dogs, 2 whom are being temporarily homed elsewhere while I get myself back on my feet. One is 15+, and may not be around much longer.
Sadly, instead of being able to care for my older dog as I would have loved to, I ended up losing my apartment and then my car, after caught fire last week. I’m stranded, broke, and unable to do anything or go anywhere with my 2 little rescue dogs. Both dogs suffer from epilepsy (seizures) as it is a hereditary thing and they are brother and sister, and very bonded. I am concerned they will be broken up and they were together since birth. Animals are the most important thing in my life and all of my volunteer work is for animals. I would love to raise enough to be able to get housing, keep my dogs, buy a cheap car and be able to work again. I have been about as productive a member of society as one can be for 30 years until my luck went sour, and it has been devastating to my little family. Please help us if you can
