Helping The Cullums

My name is Amanda and my wife's name is Alexandria. On Sunday night, 11/12/17, we came home. My wife opened our apartment door and out came black smoke. Our home was on fire. Alex ran in to get the dogs, I started to and then I ran out to get other people put of their apartments. Our one dog Ryder, shown in the above photo, was brought out first. We tried everything. We did CPR, the firefighters did CPR and the vet as well. He was already gone. Our little hamster ace, it didn't have a chance. His little lungs just couldn't stand the smoke. Our other dog, was in our bedroom under the bed. Alive. Alex screamed for me and we got him out. We've lost 2 pets already, and our apartment. Charlie is in critical condition. He was doing better but has now slowly gotten worse. So the vet is keeping him another few days. Charlie is all we have left besides each other. So please pray for him. For us. I'm not one to make these things. And I hate asking for help. But, we need all the support we can get. We need money for medical bills for Charlie and we need donations to help somehow get us back on our feet. So please even if it's only a penny, I ask you to please donate.
