Operation Healthy Pet

Hi folks, I'm Vincent and i am fundraising for my new found pet Ahsoka. As far as i can tell she looks like a snoodle(schnauzer/poodle) mix. She must be an adult because her teeth are fully developed. I just couldnt get myself to take her to the pound after she looked up at me with thay cute face of hers and those puppy dog eyes. Now, why do i need a fundraiser you may ask? To help pay for the veterinary bills? Well, it's real simple. I'm on a limited budget, recieving a disability pension from the US Dept of Veterans Affairs. And, apparently, i make to much to get food stamps. Even though i am 125% under the national poverty limit. So everything comes out of my pocket. Needless to say, I'm practically broke as soon as i get my check. When i found her, Ahsoka was riddled with ticks all over her little body. It literally took me 5 days to remove them all myself. Now, everytime i take out the tweezers she runs. LOL. She was dehydrated and badly malnourished I don't know how long she was on the streets nor do i know for what reason. But i made a promise to her that I'll never abandon her. That she will never have to worry about where her next meal came from, and that i will always protect her and keep her safe. This includes her health. Having so many ticks on her, the odds of her acquiring a disease from them is quite high. Blood work alone is $300.00 USD. Not to mention initial vet checkup, shots, heartworm prevention, vet fees. And what if she did acquire some type of disease from all those nasty ticks. Lord knows how much the vaccine will be. I really want to keep her. She has gotten quite attached to me. She doesn't want me to go anywhere without her. It's almost as though she thinks if i leave her that i will never come back. Not so. I would like to make her a service animal as well. She brings a smile to my face everyday and has given me a sense of worth. Two things i was lacking in my life. All funds raised will go towards her vet bills and any remaining will go my local animal shelter to help other abandoned pets get a new lease on life. This means so much to me. She is my everything, and i cannot break my promise to her. I thank those of you in advance who help me with this task of successfully completing Operation Healty Pet. I am forever indebted to all all of you kind folks who give. Even those of you who can't give but send your prayers. I thank you as well.
