Benny Emergency Hospital Bills

Yesterday, on my Aunt Lori's birthday, her pitty Benny jumped up on a shelf and grabbed one of her birthday gift bags which contained a container of sugar free gum. Unfortunately, this gum contained Xylitol and Benny had eaten a lot of it. My cousin and my aunt carried him to the car and rushed him to their local emergency animal hospital. As they made it closer to the emergency animal hospital, Benny started to seize in my cousins arms and was stiff and foaming at the mouth as they handed him to the veterinarians. My Aunt was in contact with the animal hospital throughout the night and it looked like he was in the clear. Unfortunately, they ran some more tests and Benny has suffered liver damage. We do not know if Benny is going to make it home and if that wasn't enough, the vet bills are now racking up as my Aunt refuses to give up on him. As many of you know, my Aunt is an amazing, caring, selfless woman. She is a single mother of 3 girls and also supports her infant granddaughter, She is also a mom to 3 adopted dogs, 3 adopted cats and works full time to support this large family and is the only one in her household currently working and has had her hours cut during this pandemic. My Aunt Lori has also been involved with rescuing animals for over 5 years. Since taking Benny in, she has put a lot of her time and effort into making him the best dog he could be after being saved from a terrible situation for the first year of his life. Although we do not know Benny's fate (we are hoping for the absolute best), we do know an estimation of the medical bills and therefore I am asking for help for my Aunt during this time! I've always known my Aunt Lori to be the first person to help others and I know times are hard right now, but please try and donate whatever you can to help my Aunt during this horrible time.47500490_1587254616122317_r.jpeg47500490_1587254635296785_r.jpeg47500490_1587254656315674_r.jpeg
