Cazzie's Vet Bills & Service Dog


24851312_1508731359.2086_funddescriptionCazzie was a dog taken far too early when attacked and ultimately killed by two vicious dogs at Mission Park Greenway in Kelowna. The struggle ensued between multiple adults trying to save Cazzie from the two large dogs, one of whom was off leash. Lisa's (the owner) 70 year old father wrestled the two mastiff's and threw his body over Cazzie in an attempt to save the small dog and was bit multiple times. The owner of the dogs fled the scene. Cazzie passed away at the vet hospital despite everyone's best wishes. He provided 6 years of love to Lisa and her family and acted as a support dog to her 5 year old son with Austism. Lisa was left with a large vet bill, her father was bitten badly on the hand, and her son witnessed the horrific attack. We would like to send her family support by covering her vet bills and providing money to give them the availability to one day get a service dog. Any amount is most appreciated. These people went through a terrible thing that no one deserves to go through, and they are incredibly kind and appreciative people. Let's show them the kindness of friends and strangers and take the monetary worries of this horrific event away for them.

UPDATE: Thank you so much to all the generous donors out there who are supporting the family. I (a witness) set a goal amount not expecting so much support, and am thrilled with how much has been earned. I have no idea how much a service dog will cost for this family, so please do not let the goal amount discourage you from donating at this time. I have heard that a service dog will cost much more than this, and we still want to provide money for the family to cover the vet bills and new glasses for the owner's father (he lost them in the fight to save Cazzie and they have not been found). A huge THANK YOU to all the supporters. The family is so kind and appreciative and they are a great cause to support. Sending love and gratitude to all the supporters out there
