Stand By Jen And Diva

Dear Friends, Due to no fault of my own, Diva and I have lost our home. Normally I am not someone who asks for help but, Diva and I have lost our home and car. Right now we are at a hotel and a week away from being on the streets. We were lucky enough to have the pet fee waived and pay extended stay rates. It has already snowed a few times, the weather is in the negative temps at night, I have no warm clothes and I'm almost out of food for Diva. Because of circumstances and everything that’s been going on, and as advised by the police officer assigned to the case, I can’t even tell anyone where we are located. It’s a safety precaution.

I have been trying to keep our head above water for months, but I am now unable to do it alone. I've been collecting recyclables for money, but it's just not enough. I have spent days on the phone reaching out for help and no one or no place would lend a helping hand and give me something to work with so I can pull myself up. Unfortunately family isn't an option. I have cried countless hours, I have self sabotaged myself repeatedly, I have been anxious 24/7 and it's getting so bad that it's crippling me and making it to the point where I can't do anything! I have been worried, stressed, angry and right now I am TERRIFIED! As of recent, I have lost all means of income. As I was on disability due to my medical issues and they are currently on hold due to my circumstances. I don’t know when disability will determine the outcome but I was informed that it could be months. I’m doing everything in my power to move the process along. I have to keep fighting to make this work, not just for myself, but for Diva too. She needs me as much as I need her! If I end up on the streets, Diva will be taken away. Not only is she my furbaby and best friend, she's also my service/emotional support dog as I have multiple medical issues. Fibromyalgia, depression, severe panic and anxiety, I’m hypoglycaemic, I have a neurological disorder and over active nerves which causes me to feel pain so severe I have been reduced to vomiting uncontrollably. I have went to several homeless shelters to inquire and have been turned away because I have a dog. No shelters here allow pets, I was told it’s either give up on your companion or continue sleeping rough. Being homeless is hard, and if you live in Canada, being homeless in the winter is almost like a death sentence. I have been told by EVERYONE to give up on Diva and I wouldn’t end up and almost be homeless. As you can see, I refuse to give up on Diva. I WILL NOT LOSE MY MALAMUTE, PERIOD! It’s really sad that people only look at Diva as a dog. Yes she is a dog, but she is so much more to me. She is my best friend, my companion, my therapy, my fur child.. she is my whole entire world! Her comforting presence and concern for me has helped me through many scary times and potential life threatening situations. A few times I have collapsed, and every time I did she caught my fall and stayed by my side. Diva alerts me to upcoming anxiety attacks/episodes, low blood sugar dangers and panic attacks. Diva gives paw signals when I tend to over exert.. those signals are to let me know to either slow down or stop what I’m doing so I don’t end up vomiting uncontrollably. Every time this has happened I’ve had to go to emergency to have it stopped, have my blood sugar dealt with and to be hydrated. She is my lifeline.. Diva is the ONLY thing that is keeping me going. Without her, I would be nothing.Diva and I have pretty much lost everything. Most of our stuff has been stolen, years of memories have been destroyed and valuable and irreplaceable things have been ripped from us. WE DON'T WANT TO LOSE EACH OTHER. If you could please find it in your hearts to help Diva and I. I finally realized that sometimes you need a little help in life and we really could use your help.I want y’all to know that this is incredibly hard for me to push my pride aside, put everything out there and ask for help. I fear that I am going to be criticized, but it’s come to the point that I’m willing to do anything to keep me and my daughter (Diva) safe. If anyone would like to donate directly to my PayPal account, my email address is [email redacted] and my link is: PayPal.Me/jett14I would like to say thank anyone who is able to donate and thank those who can't but are sending us a prayer. You will always be in our hearts and our thoughts. We may not be able to ever pay you back, but we can pay you back with love, hugs and tons of malamute slobber kisses. ❤️
