Corny's medical bills

My best friend, soul mate and little dog Corny was attacked by my neighbours' two dogs, unprovoked, under our house.

The vet described her injuries as "the worst I've ever seen in a dog fight - and where the dog has survived."

She is still fighting for her life in hospital, having had one leg amputated and fighting infection.

I am currently a PhD studenty on a $25,000 a year scholarship, which doesn't even cover my basics.

Corny's medical bills have already come to $9000, $3000 of which were paid by the neighbours (the court here considers $2500 'reasonable'), $5000 on credit and limited savings but if she survives her recent surgery, she could be in hospital for up to a month at several hundred dollars per day. Regardless, the bills have to be paid.

If I end up with more money than expected, I will either donate it to AMRRIC - an NGO which helps dogs in remote and rural indigenous communities in outback Australia - or if I have the time and energy - set up a permanent fund to try and raise more money for others on limited incomes who can't afford vet bills for their beloved furry (and other) friends. As one donor said: "She's worth it."
