Campaign Story


My dog, Penny, and I have fallen on some hard times and are currently living in my 2008 Honda Fit. It is getting a bit cold and with no place to keep her safe I am unable to work without having to rehome her. She is a rescue with some behavior issues and a severe attachment disorder – which to be fair I am extremely attached to her as well; rehoming her would not only be unbearable but hard to do. That being said we just need a bit of help please; I have severe depression and am currently wrangling with some issues of the mind and soul. I know He never gives us more than we can handle but still I struggle on this journey. While I survive on peanut butter and honey sandwiches and loading up with blankets, I am having a horrible time providing for her which is making everything so much worse. I have no family and know very few people to help – a few friends let me shower and make a meal at their house sometimes.

I am hoping to raise enough money to find a place to stay for a few weeks so that I may work while having Penny in a safe warm spot – this would allow me to get back on my feet. Just need to get by until I get a couple paychecks under my belt and can afford a place for us while I continue to work.

She has a sensitive stomach (a bag of her Science Diet food is $41 every two weeks), her flea medication (Advantix Plus for extra large dogs is $48) comes in a four pack which I used the last I had last month. Her treats are from Trader Joe’s (Charlee Bear treats $3.99 or the Peanut Butter Banana bones are $2.99). She is up to date on all vaccines, until January, including DHPP, Lyme, Bordetella, Lepto, Rabies and heartworm and given her heartworm pills every month.

I try my best to take care of her and myself, my best hasn’t been good enough the last few months and for that I am struggling to forgive myself. She and I have been through a lot over the years and I love her dearly, she is my heart outside my body. I am trying my level best to make it right now and I do not ask for help often – to our detriment I am sure. I just need a bit of help getting back on my feet, please – I am begging, I need her and for us to stay together I need help. Thank you and God Bless.
