Meet Mini. She is an eight-year-old Yorkshire Terrier. She was recently diagnosed with diabetes and is currently in the hospital. The illness has caused her to lose about two-thirds of her body weight and has left her mostly blind. Her ketones are very high and if they don't go down and I can't afford to get her further treatment, the doctors are going to suggest I put her to sleep.

She is such a nice dog and I would do anything for her but I am in a bad situation right now. I work part-time in retail. I have not been offered full-time, I have been trying to find a second job but so far been unable. My car is in desperate need of repair but I have had to put it off for months because I can't afford it. I don't even have enough to pay my bills or buy food for the next two weeks. As you can see, I'm very desperate and I need to pick up Mini tomorrow and figure out what to do next. If anyone were able and willing to offer any size donation, Mini and I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so much.

Mini is home again. She was pretty shaky when I got her but still seemed alert, walking around and rolling over to demand belly rubs. She seems okay at the moment but all signs point to her having Cushing's Disease as well which makes dealing with her diabetes alot more complicated. Please keep sharing and donating. Even if you can't donate, I really appreciate just spreading the word and words of encouragement.

Everything was going fine until tonight. I got home from work and found Mini shaking and falling down. I'm at the 24-hour hospital now. I'm starting a new full-time on Monday but right now I have $8.14 in my bank account so if anyone is able and willing to help me with what I'm sure will be a hefty hospital bill, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Good news! Mini is doing alot better. The vet wanted to keep her for one more day. Then it'll be a matter of following a strict diet and insulin regimen. I will have to take her in for a follow-up appointment, probably next week. Infinitely thanks to everyone who donated and shared. Please keep doing so. We're not out of the woods yet.
