A gift for Gucci

Dear Family, friends and animal lovers –

It is hard for me to make this plea and I am usually a very private person but my baby boy and best friend, Gucci, is having a medical crisis and I need help raising funds to cover his emergency stay at OVRS and surgery.  Gucci is 10 years old and has a mass on his spleen that is leaking.  He will need emergency surgery to have his spleen removed before the mass ruptures.  Without this surgery his prognosis is only a couple weeks. Until  they can get him in for surgery he needs to stay under observation at the ER.

 

I am one of the unfortunate ones who lost my job during COVID.  I can’t imagine life without Gucci so I am humbly asking for your help.

 

A little more about Gucci.  I rescued him from a dangerous situation in Pontiac ten years ago.  He was so tiny (as tiny as a kitten), had no name, no collar and no medical.  The people who had him were neglecting him – feeding a puppy adult dog food from their neighbor.  I begged the owner to let me buy him (so that I could save him).  The man saw how we were bonding and instead of making me give him money he just asked that I promise I would take care of him and give him the best life.  And I have done just that for the last ten years and I know he deserves many more years.  And just when I thought our bond could not be any stronger, COVID brought us closer – I must do everything I can to save him.  He is the best cuddler, loves arm scratches and adores his teddy bear.

 

I know these are hard times for many of us – but I am hoping you can help me by sharing my story, donating and praying.  Every bit helps – no donation is too small.

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart (and Gucci’s).
