My Emergency Savings Have Been Wiped Out & I Need Help with My Rent Before Another Crisis Happens!
I'm a single, unmarried dog mom with a senior Boston Terrier at home as well as a new foster dog. Sadly, my senior dog got a nasty GI infection in December and has been in and out of the emergency vet 3 times since then. I used my emergency savings to pay for his treatment, so I don't really have any of that left. I work full-time and even picked up a part-time job to compensate for the vet bills, but I'm still one emergency away from being completely wiped out now.
I'm able to take care of all of my bills month to month with no problems, but if I happen to have another emergency, then I'm not sure I'd be able to keep up with my rent or other bills. For example, if my car broke down or my dog got sick again, then I'm not sure I would be able to make it through a crisis like that. Now that my emergency funds are gone, I want to be proactive about my situation and try to make sure that I'm stable before an emergency comes along instead of waiting to react to one. While my housing situation isn't in the most immediate danger, I'm only an emergency away from potentially losing my home down the line. So, I'm asking for assistance with paying my rent this month because it will allow me to rebuild my emergency fund and to be better prepared for anything that might threaten our home.
Getting this help will ensure that I'm able to remain in my home well into the foreseeable future, and it will allow me to spend as much time as I can caring for my senior dog while also working hard to provide for us. Given his age, our moments together now are extremely precious to me. Thank you for allowing me to cherish those moments as best I can and thank you all for helping me stay stable and safe in my home. I will never forget your compassion and generosity.
