Donate to Help Doodles in Need (Mystery Illness)

Hi, my name is Kirsten. I decided to set up a gofundme for my mom. While she tries to do everything herself, I see that she needs some extra help to relieve stress regarding her current situation.

The short version: one of her beloved Golden Doodles passed away with sudden surprise Parvo on 9/23. Her other two doodles tested negative at the time but are not in the clear yet and are going to need follow up care. Three dog vet bills, including emergency vet bills add up. Anything leftover I will donate to Joseph's Legacy.
Long version: My mom's beloved Golden Doodle, Rusty (the one on the left), suddenly got sick on 9/22. My mom took him to an emergency vet where he was diagnosed with HGE. He continued to fall ill the following day. While on her way to the vet, he crossed the rainbow bridge in the car. Banfield was awesome and tested him for us, only to find it was parvo.

While confused since he had been vaccinated and never left the house/yard. The concern shifted to her other two golden doodles, Phoenix and Mia. We rushed them there, while they thankfully tested negative and we could reup on their vax. They still aren't in the clear.

Today, currently, Phoenix was taken to the vet as his diarrhea and vomit this morning posed concerns. We await to see the game plan, we suspect Mia may not be far off. All three dogs were vaxxed last year at the same time and were in close contact when Rusty fell ill.

I will used any of the money donated for their care and follow up care, the potential of emergency vet being in the future. If anything extra is left I plan on donating to the rescue Joseph's Legacy.
