Help Bring Bonty Home

If you know anything about me at all, you know the love I have for my furry baby. The Universe has put me in charge of his dear soul this lifetime and I've done, and will continue to do, everything in my power to provide him the best life possible. That being said, I've come to quite a roadblock.

I've had Bonty in Taiwan for over a year now and we've had some amazing times together along with Iroh. It's now time to say goodbye to Taiwan and come back home to the US. I just received the quote for his airfare and, believe it or not, it's going to cost over $2000 USD to bring him home. I am stunned and sickened by this news, honestly.

I recently became a single mother and have struggled to give my son a great life. Just one week ago, I lost my kindergarten teaching job, which was my main source of income. I'm also dealing with a major hiccup with my son's visa with the immigration department because my boss didn't renew our visas on time as I requested and, due to no fault of my own, will be charged very heavy fines. Needless to say, I'm in quite the financial pinch.

Now, here's where I beg: I believe a pet is a pet for life no matter what happens. Abandoning/finding a new home fir Bonty is not an option. I just want to get him home safely to live out the rest of his days in peace and harmony in nature. I've only got two weeks to figure out how to pay for his ticket before I depart for the states. His airfare back to the US is literally double what it cost to bring him here and I'm out of ideas, thus this campaign.

I'm def not someone to ever ask for financial help. I'm a strong and responsible woman who takes care of her own, but I'm at a loss as to what I can do in this situation and hope you can find it in your heart to help a poor mama out. I really appreciate your love and support. Thank you.
