Air Force Family Pup Needs Help.

On Thursday evening, Leroy Jenkins, our family dog was accidently hit by a vehicle outside of our home on Joint Base Andrews. Leroy brings joy and happiness to our family and friends. He's helped us adjust and cope though trauma. We’d absolutely love to help him get though this. Unfortunately, his injury requires one hind leg to be amputated and veterinarian bills are adding up. We're reaching out to the community for help. Please consider donating. Thank you for reading.

Update 9-22-2017
Hello all, my name is Becky. My family is also part of the military community at Joint Base Andrews. While on our way to celebrate the success of the Air Show, we stumbled on this unfortunate accident. My family was one of the first on scene and drove injured Leroy to veterinarian treatment.

While Leroy was receiving care, we met his people: Michael and Katelyn. Michael mentioned he’s served in the USAF for 6 years. Leroy was a stray they adopted at their last duty assignment in Hawaii. Michael lost both his parents six months previously and Leroy brought comfort. Michael also noted the sweet pup helped him transition home from a six month deployment in August 2017. Of course, while he was away serving, Leroy was the best companion to Katelyn and their small daughter.

Unfortunately, Leroy passed away from his injuries. Pups are family. We’re devastated for his people and want to ease the pain by erasing financial responsibility. Thankfully, Southern Maryland VCA offers a 10% military discount. Donations from family and friends are also helping. The new goal has been adjusted to match the exact veterinarian bill with a cushion for the GoFundMe fees. Until resolved, my family will shoulder the responsibility of the debt for now so Michael, Katelyn and their sweet family can heal.
