Hello! My name is Joshann and I've had my Pomeranian, Chester, for over 8 years now. He's a ray of sunshine in my rather stressful life and I don't know what I'd do without him.

Chester has had to have dental work performed before in the past and desperately needs it again, only this time it seems a bit more serious.
Like everyone else in these financially-trying times, my husband and I have been struggling just to pay rent and utilities while still maintaining our home and providing for our pets. It is a daily struggle for us, a one-income family. My husband has been searching for work for over a year and I work only about 30 hours a week (more if I'm lucky) with my job. We have been fortunate to have the love and support of family and friends, who are able to help out fiscally from time to time.  But in this instance, we are in need of help from others.

Chester's dental work will require more than a cleaning. It appears he may need more teeth extracted and on a more serious note, it also appears he possibly has a serious infection or abscess on the right side of his mouth. As his owner, it breaks my heart to think that I could not take him to get the necessary treatment he so desperately needs, and I think any pet owner who has had their pet as long as I've had mine would understand this feeling.  I am worried that delaying treatment over a length of time will cause more severe medical problems, some too severe to fix.

I love my Chester very very much and I am trying to find more alternative ways to raise the money myself to get him to the vet as soon as possible, which is how I found this site. I'm asking all those who can spare the funds to please donate to this cause that is very dear to me and I know Chester would appreciate it too. Any little bit helps and I appreciate all those who donate or just took the time to read this. Thank you very much for your contributions! :)

I am going to talk to Alex about where our finances are at, but I'm doubtful that we're in a good position to help. $500.00 seems like a good price, but if I were you, I would still call around to the animal shelters, and humane society, and see if they know of any low-cost veterinary care that may be able to save you some money and get your little Chester's teeth fixed! To anyone who's on the fence to donate: I urge you to! :) JoshAnn loves her puppies. I know a lot of people believe in the saying, "If you can't afford the vet, you can't afford the pet." But what happens when a lifelong friend of yours needs you, but you're in a rough time of your life? This little fuzzball of a dog is super hyper, a lot of fun, and he seems to have almost no clue how old he is. So if you have the money to help, and there's even an ounce of compassion in you, help her out. This dog is great and deserves to be out of pain!
