Save Camp Catherine's Pet Salon and Resort

To try and make a long story short...... Camp Catherine's is a small business in Delray Beach providing boarding, grooming and daycare services to our local pups.  The owner Catherine has worked there since 2006 and has owned this incredible facility since 2010.  In January of this year Catherine totally renovated the facility with help from lots of friends.  Earlier this year she was diagnosed with Diabetic Retinopathy. Short definition of what that is...Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and a leading cause of blindness among working-age adults.  With that said... Catherine does not have medical insurance and has to pay all bills relating to the care and treatment of her eyes out of pocket.  They usually run about $1000 - $3000 per visit.  She had to file for personal bankruptcy to try and help pay for her medical bills.   Because of this she is not able to get a loan from a reputable place.  I know that is a lot of very personal information but I'm trying to put all of the facts out there so everyone knows how hard she has and is still trying to keep her passion and dreams alive.  She has currently fallen behind on the rent at her facility and needs to pay $25,000.00 to her landlord by the 19th of July 2019 in order to not be evicted and to keep the doors open.  I being her mother can not see all of the hard work and efforts that she has gone through for her dream to just come crashing down.  Anyone that knows her would agree that she is a very caring person that has an extreme love for the animals, wears her heart on her sleeve and would give the shirt off of her back to anyone in need.  At the facility most clients and all of the pups are greeted by name and with love upon arrival.   It is like a family there and everyone is treated as though they are apart of it.  Catherine is a very honest and upfront person and does not keep any secrets.  She has reached out to numerous people to let them know of the current situation and her plans to try and save the business.  If she has not reached out to you yet it is because I was quicker at setting this up.... I ask from the bottom of my heart please pledge a donation. Any contribution small or large will help this wonderful place keep the doors open. Its not just a business it's a safe place for your pups and is a second home. Please share this page allowing others the opportunity to donate as well.   Thank you all in advance!!! My daughter means the world to me as your pups mean the world to her.
