Help Omii & Stacey after Van Fire

On October 4, 2018 a fire broke out in my moms apartment in Vancouver. While my mom was at work, her dog (Omii) was trapped inside along with all her belongings. A few amazing Samaritans broke the door down to remove Omiis unconscious body from the smoke filled room.

Fire has taking everything from my mom but the clothing on her back, her dog and her car! Omii and her need everything to start over and keep them both comfortable during this awful time.

My mom is currently without a home and is in 3 day temporary housing at a hotel.

Omii is currently seeking medical attention at VCA Vancouver Animal Emergency & Referral Centre.
Omii is conscious currently but obvious signs of discomfort, lethargy and lung damage are present. Omii is an Addison patient and is required a daily medication and special diet to keep him comfortable. This can increase complications with the care.
As far as cost goes, We have currently been quoted 2800$ (high end) for a one night stay and treatment. This will increase with further treatment.

Main focus right now is Omiis health and finding a permanent or temporary resistance for the both of them. The remaining money will help with toiletries, medication, food costs and obviously getting her back on her feet!

If you wish to send money directly to the clinic please contact
VCA Canada Animal Emergency & Referral Centre - Vancouver (1-[phone redacted])

Even the smallest amount helps and is very much appreciated by our entire family!
