Frank's Emergency Vet Fund

My name is Caleb Quill and I’m a single dad with a beautiful daughter and an amazing dog named Frank.

I’ve had to make some significant changes in my life this past year, but I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve got a healthy daughter named Roq, and a sweet loyal dog named Frank.

If you’ve seen my Facebook, then you know the two most important things in my life are Roq and Frank.

Frank has been by my side for 3 years. Roq just turned 2 and I can’t describe the joy I feel watching her laugh and smile and love on Frank. He is truly our best friend. 

I’m facing a very difficult situation. This past weekend, I could tell that Frank was very lethargic before I headed off to work on Friday. I made an appointment with a Vet, but when I got home, Frank didn't jump up to greet me like he usually does. I could tell things were getting worse. 

When I was changing clothes to leave, I let him out and he wandered off.  After 20 minutes of looking, I found him laying by a creek in some mud and he wouldn't respond when I called his name. I ran up and grabbed him and thought he was dying so I carried him to the car and rushed him to the Pet ER.

He was dehydrated, panting, and moaning the entire way there. His vitals were shutting down from what we later discovered was over a year of living with a swallowed pacifier lodged in his intestines. He was going to either die or require emergency surgery.

I knew it would be expensive but I could not hesitate at the cost. So I told the doctors to do what ever they needed to keep him alive. They told me he may not make it through surgery.

Thank God the surgery was a success! It’s going to be a tough climb and a long recovery and Frank will need more hospitalization. But HE WILL MAKE IT! Our prayers were answered.

My downpayment only covered a portion of the bill and this has become a life-changing expense for my daughter and I.

The money is due soon so I humbly ask that if you can, that you would consider helping me and support the cost of saving Frank’s life. Any amount, no matter how small, will be helpful and mean the world to me. The money raised will go directly to the debt I owe the Blue Pearl Vet Emergency Team, who saved Frank’s life, and any extra will be donated to the Humane Society.
