Elementary Teacher Needs Rent Help After Pet's Medical Emergency

The Details:

I have been teaching at elementary school for 5 years. I live in a one bedroom apartment with my dog, Riley, who I rescued in February this year.

I rescued my dog, Riley, a few months ago from a our city's public veterinarian and was told that she was in great health. A few days after getting her, I noticed she was very lethargic and having trouble breathing regularly. I called the vet, and they again told me that everything was fine and she was 'just adjusting'. The next day, she wouldn't even lift her head or get up to eat.. I immediately rushed her to an animal clinic and they proceeded to put her on a respiratory machine and insist she stay in the ICU for the day. Riley had 3 major respiratory diseases (bronchitis, pneumonia, and alveolar disease), and that her lungs were almost completely full of 'gunk'. Paying for treatment took most of my savings and put me in a bind being able to pay all my other expenses.

This funding will help bring current with my finances, along with making me feel less stressed about getting by. I completely wiped out my savings to make sure my dog was healthy and would do it again if needed, but this has made it very difficult to feel stable and secure in being able to realistically pay my bills on time. Thank you, Modest Needs, for helping make a positive difference in the lives of others in need.
