Two wheel Forum- please help.. PETLOVERS

OK so heres the deal.....

I just changed jobs to try to get ahead money wise.... i however took a pay cut in the short run....


MY DOG... Who is the female in my pic's in the PET forum, got in my house while i was gone, ate some gorilla glue( which swells up not allowing her to eat.... And she goes into surgery tomorrow morning to save her life.

I figured the ppl on here are some of the greatest people and i know many or most of us love our pets like family, and are a important part of our lives like riding.
I am currently working 56 hours a week now to try to pay my bills including her surgery....The maximum my work will let me.

I have never asked anyone to help me, i do not buy more then i can afford.
However due to this situation i am sitting a little screwed.
SO, i am asking for our great members help.... donations (entirely to her 1100-1600$ total surgery cost to save her life) would help me more then you know and would be appreciated more then words can ever explain. I need new tires to ride, but am just parking my bike till i can pay her surgery off first off first... So whatever anyone can do to help would be a saving grace at this point. I will find a way to pay her bill if i have to starve to do so.
I guess the easiest way is PayPal... anyone willing to help can donate to [email protected] on paypal... you can do it annymously or far from it if u wish.

Again thank you guys, and even if i dont get a penny towards her bill you guys are the BEST!

Oh geez......you KNEW the biggest (but poorest) pet lover in the world was on this forum didnt you LOL. Ok, you need to get a crate, crate her when your gone from here on out. And YOUR AWESOME for doing the surgery. I got some b-day money today (not much), and can use a little to help but would rather send a check than paypal so pm your address its thats ok. Sorry to hear that, good luck for the surgery tomorrow. Is she spayed?

she is not spayed, But only(because i do beleive in it) because she has an incredible temperment and and is gorgeuous...I want to have a puppy from her when she and my male get older.. maybe 5 or 6 years. When i am gone shes in my back yard... Condo, 9'x18' yard, just my sliding glass door wont lock half the time for some reason, i iddnt know it was failing till my male learned to open it. Now i check it before i leave them.

I do have a crate but i dont get enough time to really give her the excercise shed need being pinned up all day, so i leave them to play together during the day, i ocme home for my lunch break and spend about 20 minutes with them, then beforre and after work.

But thank you very VERY VERY much... ill pm you my address

less then 2 hours later and 2 ppl are dopnating... YOU GUYS ARE INCREDIBLE.
I am not expecting even half the money to come by donation, i do not want my stupid mistake paid for by everyone else, but certianly dropping the amount i need to come up with down a bit will help me to work a second full time if i must. I know working 96 hours a week will be draining beyond anything imagineable, plus make me have to neglect my pets to do so... So i really appreciate you guys more then you can ever imagine. Count me in in the future if u need anything and i have even a $1 to spare!

wow, thats terrible man, that would break my heart to no end to lose a pet that way.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!
The response in just a couple hours has been phenominal, didnt expect three ppl to donate in three days let alone two hours!

This is why motorcyclists are some of the most incredible ppl in the world! I'd never ask for anyone to buy me tires or anything for myself, but when it comes to helping each other with tragedy and familys of accident victimsd and needy kids.... We as a group are AMAZING

Update

Total donated is 60$ via paypal, 1.92$ in fees, but left 58.08$ to her bill, plus 2 ppl senidng via mail 20$ plus unsure on second amount... so im right around $100
Thats aobut 100$ more then i expected to honestly get.

HER SURGERY went perfect, so the bill should be in the 1100$ area rather then the 1600$, they took a orange sized ball of glue out. She will be on IV and drugs overnight, then just pain meds for several days after. She will be coming home wednesday afternoon or thursday. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
if u ever have a similar issue you can certainly count me in to help all i can.

i posted this on a much smaller forum... riderforums.com and the moderator closed it... saying its inapropriate on a motorcycle site... but it was in the Off topic forum, and every one critisized me saying i should just work two full time jobs anyways so i can afford emergencies and whatnot.....


I LOVE THIS BOARD. AND THE PPL IN IT.

Reasons like the above are why its a newer site yet much much larger then riderforums and getting more new ppl then they are every day.

and i almost forgot...i owe some serious reps aobut as fast as i can give em to a few of you.

Got your pm, will go out tomorrow by 5 & glad she's doing well BUT.....I would really hope you would reconsider having a litter and get both your kids fixed! I actually would love not to have to do rescue, but unfortunately there are so many unwanted dogs out there and the reason is too many dogs so breeding just adds to the overpopulation problem. I have 2 pup fosters (from different litters) right now (plus a few others) but both of them - guess what "their dog was so sweet, and the other such a good hunter" that they wanted to have a litter. 2 of 10 from Louie's litter (kept 1, gave one away) and 3 of 12 from Enzo's litter someone bought for $50. Guess what became of the other 17, YES SEVENTEEN pups ~ they were dropped off to a shelter and were going to be put to sleep. So, I REALLY would urge you and anyone else out there to please not add to the overpopulation problem. If you don't believe me go down to your local shelter on any given day, trust me you wont like what you see. It breaks my heart when I have to pick 2 that I have room to save out of 27 that are being put to sleep that day. We had a letter sent into one of our link-up lists for rescue here in Michigan, our list owner replied - it was just so awesome I wanted to post it to demonstrate the truth about breeding a dog and why you should NOT do it........

Help!!! This is the third time my Jack Russell, Paige has been in
heat, I really want to get her fixed but not without first having one
litter from her, She is a pure breed and is very loving with a great
temperment. If anyone is willing or knows of someone who breeds pure
breed jack's, Please call me or pass on my info,I am willing to pay or
you have pick of litter.

Dear Melissa,

At the present time there are 1,876 Jack Russell Terriers listed on www.petfinder. com They are all homeless. Many of them are in shelters and will die there in the next few days.

They are little puppies, young adults, middle aged discards and old timers, purebreds and mixes. Any size, color, age or sex of JRT you could possibly want.

Every day those of us in rescue are bombarded by shelters and individuals begging us to please take their JRTs so they don't have to kill them. There is no where near enough help to be able to save even half of them. Far from it.

Every one of those dogs once had a home. Many of them are purebred and were purchased from a breeder such as you would like to be or a pet store where they paid big money for the dog.

Do you really want to bring another litter into this world, knowing that even if you find "good" homes for them, at least half of them will eventually find themselves homeless and die unwanted and unloved?

This year is especially bad in Michigan for all breeds, as so many owners are moving due to our poor economy in Michigan and can't take their dogs with them or can no longer afford to pay for their vet care anymore.

But any time is bad for the Jacks. The breed is adorable, but few people are really prepared for the energy and drive of a JRT. Then they go to Free to Good Home placements, animal shelters and get passed around to a series of homes or are killed or given to the research brokers who collect excess dogs from a number of Michigan shelters.

Please talk to your vet. You'll find there is no medical or psychological advantage to a bitch having "just one litter" and that spaying your bitch provides medical advantages to her as well as prevents the various inconveniences of living with a bitch in heat.

And most importantly, spaying her guarantees that "just one litter" more that will not end up dying because there are simply too many Jack Russell Terriers and not enough homes.

Thanks,
Laurel

i posted another one with pics and such....But she is doing well, sleeping at my feet right now, pain meds for 10 days, 1/2 of special food 2 times a day till friday when i can start adding some nomral food to it. Stitches in for 2 weeks with a cone on her head (which is already irritating her).

And i can see the issue on the breeding end.. ive never got a dog that i didnt rescue, and it is sad going to the pound knowing chosing one over another probalby means the other will die. My male is fixed... night blind anywyas so wouldnt wanna breed him. The only way ill ever breed her is with ppl lined up to claim every dog that i know will have them forever... Even then i know they should get pound dogs...Its just hard, ive always wanted a pup and mother... if i do it itll be once in my life. I am a huge believer in adoption.

I actually wanna go volunteer at the humane society when my money situation gets settled and i have a little time. Id love to work with the so called "problem dogs", help them get love and attention to help em get adopted... I know most dogs deemed un-adoptable just need time love and training.

oh yeah and the bill total start to finish was $1129. Thank GOd for it being on the low end. the vet was great and was a great guy, he loved her. and said she made a VERY fast recovery to being a happy go lucky dog for how major of a surgery it was. She wanted to eat and be normal right after waking up and never vommited or had any issues. She was a trooper.
