Rick needed to have a crucial surgery in order to save his life. He knew he had to have this procedure, but kept putting it off because he didn’t have anyone to care for his 6 dogs and 3 cats while he was away. After postponing the inevitable for over a year, Rick contacted Neighborhood Pets desperately in need of assistance. He was in a situation where he felt he had to choose between giving up his pets, his family, or not have the lifesaving surgery and dying at home.
This is a situation that many can’t imagine having to deal with, sadly, many low income pet owners with medical issues face this on a regular basis. Our team at Neighborhood Pets Outreach & Resource Center was not ok with these two options, and offered to fund the pet sitting care for Rick’s 6 dogs and 3 cats while he had his surgery and recovered.
Rick is now home, with his family. His 6 dogs absolutely adore him. It’s because of generous donors like you that we can help us keep loving families together.
