My name is Christopher Mackley, and I am currently Active US Military and have been for 12 years. I have a family which consists of my wife, Ashly Mackley and my four dogs which are considered children to us. We also have a son on the way, Thomas Mackley, who will be born May 1, 2014. We currently are stationed in South Korea but need to get back stateside due to medical complications with my son. He will be born with polydactyly and will need special pediatric orthopedic surgeon care.
As most know, the US Military will cover expenses to move myself and household belongings, however pets and my wife are not covered. We do not consider our dogs as pets; we consider them family as our children. To relocate our pets, the cost is estimated at $4900 out of our pocket. This cost estimate is for airfare and boarding/ customs which is about $1,200 per dog.
We are hoping for donations of any size to help us keep our family together and help with the transition of getting back stateside. We will have medical bills once back stateside on top of moving expenses from the dogs and my wife.
We appreciate any and all kinds of donations to help cover our personal expense to keep our family together Donations are needed by February 3, 2014.
