On Thursday, June 19 we received an email from a concerned neighbour. She was writing to see if we could help her neighbour Lucy and her cat, Paws who was having trouble breathing. Lucy is elderly, who lives alone with her cat, Paws, and is on a fixed income and unable to afford a visit to the veterinarian clinic.
At Paws for Hope, we understand the significant impact pets have on the elderly, and others who may have limited mobility and are isolated, so we wanted to do what we could to see that Paws and Lucy had more years together.
Within two hours, we were able to recruit Board Director, Megan to pick Paws and Lucy up the next day to transport them to Scottsdale Veterinary Hospital where Dr. Shawn Llewellyn would examine Paws.
Paws has an upper repository infection, and really bad teeth. She will need blood work and major dental work. In the meant time, she is on antibiotics and lysine. We will do everything we can to help Paws, and are looking to our supporters for donations to help us cover the cost of the major dental work required to eliminate Paw’s discomfort and reduce the risk of other illnesses.
Our goal is to raise $1,000. Please consider giving…so Paws and others like her do not have to suffer
