Help A Dog In Need!

July 11, 2012

I know I just wrote a post about a song for everyone to check out by a friend of mine, but I wanted to write a different post to make you all aware of something. On twitter, I began following a woman with the name @HelpforBear, about 6 months to a year ago. She was trying to get the word out that her dog named Bear was very ill (with cancer) and she needed help. She is a single mom on a fixed income trying to find some generous people to help her out. After a few months, Bear became extremely sick to the point where her vet needed to put him down. It was a very sad time for Charlene, and to make it worse, for months her dog Jewel had been dealing with bad heartworms and she was finding it difficult to pay for the medication.

The situation as it stands now is that Jewel still has the heartworms, she eats very little (or not at all some days) and now can’t use her back legs. She has been having to buy doggie diapers because Jewel can’t go to the bathroom outside (or walk at all) and Charlene has to lift her back legs to get her in and out of the car. She now has to have blood tests and xrays done at the vet to see what is going on, but Charlene does not even have the money to take her to the vet. The vet is afraid that if Jewel can not be treated and gets worse, they will need to put her down, but Charlene does not want to have to do that (she had to put down Bear, as well as a previous dog) and even if that is the case she does not have the money to do so.

The reason I am telling all of you this is that I would like to try to help Charlene. She has had a very rough time, and although she has some support over twitter and facebook, she does need more help. So if you could please go to her Chip In site for Jewel, read her updates, spread the word, and donate if you can, I would appreciate it and I know Charlene and Jewel would appreciate it more than you can imagine.

Thanks everyone.
