Help with Storm’s vet bill??

Hi all!

Storm here! Most of you know that my mom has Lupus and that I am her companion dog. And some of you may know that I recently tore my Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and the only way to correct this is to have an ACL repair surgery.

Mom hates to ask for help but says I am so good at begging that I thought I would put my skills to use! My mom needs assistance in helping with my vet bill for this surgery.

It is very important that I get my leg fixed! I make sure she gets her exercise by giving me small walks when I need to go out. Sometimes she tells me that she is in too much pain but I make her do it anyway! I need her to be healthy, just like she needs me to be healthy.

She even uses me as leverage when she can’t get off the floor. But I need my strong legs to be healthy in order to hold her up until she is able to stand on her own.

I am asking for any donations to help with the vet bill as funds are hard to come by. Any amount will do – even one dollar would be fantastic! If you are not able to donate, please pass this or the word along. Below is the vet’s information if you wish to send a check or call in with a payment over the phone. Thank you so much! You have no idea how much Mom will appreciate it!

Slobbery kisses,

As you can see, I can't put any weight on my back leg. :( Surgery will fix this!  :)

I like my bed but this is the only comfortable thing on the floor.

I am a geeky animal lover and have an American Bulldog named Storm. Storm is my everything. She helps keep me sane by being my companion pet. I am an expert in chronic pain as I have Systemic Lupus, Fibromyalgia and migraines. I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2000 and the rest followed after that year.

  1. I’m sorry I do not have money to donate, but I have prayed for the Lord to provide for you and Storm. Much Love, Deborah

  2. 😦 sorry to hear this!

    Might I suggest starting a go fund me page? I see them work wonders all the time and they are a great way to appeal to a large number of people πŸ™‚

    1. I thought about doing that but they take about 10% of what you make as a fee. I may still go that route, I’m not sure right now though. Thanks for the suggestion! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi! Sorry I’m just now responding to this. I recently realized I had to approve the comments in the pending area of WP; I figured they would just approve after so long! Haha! Thank you for your comment. I decided not to set up a fund page and have slowly been paying it off. I know there are some sites out there where they can help, I just need to do some researching! πŸ™‚
