It can happen to anyone due to unexpected circumstances, but no owner wants their pet(s) to suffer because resources and/or medical care are out of reach. Help is out there!
When we have donations we can help in the assistance of some of these cases. See below for stories on our Community Pet Cases.
Nena's owner posted on local Solano County Pet sites looking for assistance to get the medication that her dog needed for an ear infection. She had already been to the vet for the diagnostics, she just needed a lil bit more help getting everything to take home. We were happy to help!
UPDATE 4/11/21: $50 of goal reached
Pepper went in to the emergency hospital because he had a urinary obstruction that is sadly, but commonly seen in a fair number of male cats. His owners immediately began treatment which consisted of placing an indwelling urinary catheter to flush out the blood, mucous and debris that caused his urethra to obstruct. Not only that, Pepper was in critical condition and close to death because of how high his levels of potassium, blood urea and creatinine were in his blood stream. When the body is unable to eliminate toxins that the kidneys filter out through urine, it becomes imperative that it receives immediate treatment to de-obstruct and allow it to eliminate again.
Pepper’s owner has paid over $4,000 to have him hospitalized but because of the severity of the condition that he came in, he still requires more time!
Unfortunately, this also requires more funding so we are here to help in any way we can! His treatment is costing approximately $1,000/day which includes urinary and intravenous catheter care, antibiotics, gastrointestinal protectants, urethral sphincter relaxers, appetite stimulants, intravenous fluids, pain medication and daily blood value checks. We would like to help cover a couple of more days of treatment in order to increase his chances of not needing surgery (which would cost an additional $4-6,000!). We need your help and support!
Together we can save him!
UPDATE: This sweet boy is doing great! His urine is less bloody and has now transitioned to oral medications. He is getting urethral relaxers, pain medication, antibiotics and sedatives.
We aren’t sure why his bladder inflammation is so severe but we are ecstatic that with your help we were able to initiate another 24 hours of treatment! Now, he can keep his urinary catheter in longer which will allow his bladder to continue to heal.
They have stopped his IV fluids since he is eating great! This is will also cut down cost!
With your help, were able to raise about $500 for this sweet boy! We need to cover a bit more for his entire stay but we can’t do it without you!
The LNU Lightning Complex fires were a large complex of wildfires that burned in August of 2020. The complex was composed of numerous lightning-sparked fires, most of which were small. The Hennessey Fire eventually grew to merge with the Gamble, Green, Markley, Spanish, and Morgan fires, scorching 192,000 acres by itself, for a total burn area of 363,220 acres in the complex. The fire, which burned in the hills surrounding several large cities, such as Fairfield, Napa, and Vacaville, destroyed 1,491 structures and damaged a further 232. Pitter Patter family members were evacuated and then that home was evacuated due to the fast spreading flames. Once able to return home we discovered our neighbors did not fend as well. We aided them in igloos for their dogs, food for the various types of pets, and monetary donations to buy supplies at Western Ranch Pet and Feed Supply.
UPDATE: $500 goal reached!!
Once back home your donations assisted them with comfy igloos along with food and treats!
