Help Bring Brucie Home

Brucie is our family fur baby. We have had him since he was a puppy, even longer than we have had our own human babies. With our move from Florida to Hawaii, flying Brucie home has been the greatest unexpected expense [especially due to his size, and Hawaiian quarantine regulations] that has become a burden on the family. We know we cannot live without him, and we need a way to bring Brucie home! 

Brucie was a gift from Chauncey when we were in college, I soon had him registered as my service animal to help me through anxiety due to a serious trauma I had experienced. Since then, Brucie has been in our wedding, and been with us while we have been raising our children. He is the perfect family dog. Our love for him runs so deep. The idea of leaving him behind due to money makes us all incredibly sad. I had considered it, but after talking to people and being encouraged, it's not an option. I had a stranger tell me this morning that if I never ask I will never receive. So I humbly ask- if there is anything you can offer I would appreciate it, from the bottom of my dog-loving heart. 

Our move is at the end of February and I still need to get Brucie seen at the vet and make arrangements for his flight and quarantine process.
