What do you do when your dog is suffering and at the end of her life but financial hardship prevents you from giving her a peaceful passing?
Their email was headlined, 'Holly our beloved family member.'
"I have a 16 year old female pit named Holly. We have had her since birth .... Holly has taken a bad turn in the last few days. She hasn't eaten or drank in this blistering 90+ heat. We know it's time. Unfortunately I don't have the finances to euthanize and cremate as I did with my other pets. I have since been diagnosed with a brain tumor and cannot work. I am on disability and have 2 daughters. We love our Holly and <are> in need of any financial resources or referrals to any resources so we can not let Holly suffer anymore. Please contact me with any help."
Euthanasia and private cremation costs can easily reach $500 or more. We're indebted to our donors who allowed us to say a quick 'Yes' to Holly's family, to Noble Veterinary Clinic for seeing them immediately, and to a wonderful donor for covering the cost of a private cremation so her family could have her remains.
"My family can now start the long road of grieving. We don't know what we would've done without your help. Thank you for caring for a breed everyone else turns away. Noble clinic employees are professional, kind and very understanding to our pain and grieving. If there is anything we can do to help your organization in the future please reach out to us. Even if it's volunteering to make someone else's family get through this hard time. We are always here for you guys. Your kindness will never be forgotten. Holly left this life at 4:37 PEACEFULLY."
