I live in a very bad neighborhood. I live alone except for dogs and cats, whom I consider my family. Something happened about a week ago that truly makes me fear for my pets when I'm not home. The neighbor next to me was arguing with his roommates and I heard gunshots. Not long afterward, I saw a small fire had been started in his yard. Our houses are so close together and I’m so worried about my animals each day while I’m gone to work. I have been trying to find a remote job just so I can be home in case something happens but haven’t had any luck finding one that pays a livable wage.
I have been selling stuff online in the hopes of raising money to put a down payment on another house and sell the one I live in, but it has been an uphill battle. I deal with a chronic illness that prevents me from working an additional job, and quite frankly, I would worry about leaving my pets alone for an additional length of time.
I’m asking anyone who may have been touched by my story to consider donating to this cause. Thank you on behalf of myself and my darling pets.
