Job Loss And Medical Bills, Need Rent Help

My Story:

My husband and I moved to a great city along with our 2 fur babies. I work full-time and just started a part-time position. My husband who is a veteran also works full-time but it's commission only. Unfortunately we do not live close to any family but our dogs are like our kids.

My husband and I moved here for his job. After 4 months it was determined the position wasn't right for him and he was let go. At the same time we found out our fur baby has a tumor and needed surgery ASAP. My husband did find another job but it is commission only. We do not have any family we could ask for help. We had the surgery for our pup but the combined expense of the surgery along with the job loss has caused us to fall behind with our rent. We are in a serious bind. We need Modest Needs help with our rental payment.

We are worried that we could eventually lose our home if we do not get back on track with our landlord. This funding will bring our household current with our rent and give us peace of mind. I have just started a part-time position which will give us a chance to build an emergency savings fund for ourselves so that we will be able to maintain our expenses should something like this occur again. Your help would make a long-lasting impact on our family.
