Fund the Veterinary Medical Assistance Grant
Organized by: Dianna Georgina
Help with Vet Bills
Too many pet owners whose beloved pets need life-saving treatment lack the necessary financial resources, and must face the sad choice of euthanization. All of the money raised will fund the Water Lily Foundation Veterinary Medical Assistance Grant. This grant currently provides up to $500 in matching funds for veterinary treatment essential to the life of the pet, for pet owners who can't afford the entire bill. The more money we raise, the more pets we will be able to help save. For more information, please visit our website at www.waterlily-foundation.org.
Angel, a whippet mix, got into trouble one day when her owners were away at work. Something caught her eye and she just HAD to chase it! She got out of the back yard and, while on her mad romp after that rabbit or squirrel or whatever it was, got hit by a car.
When her owners came home, Angel was laying in the middle of the street. They took her home and wrapped her in a blanket. She was alive, but something was terribly wrong. Her leg looked funny and she couldn't walk on it. It was probably broken. She would need medical treatment if she would ever use the leg again.
Angel's owners really loved her, but they couldn't afford the veterinary bill. With tears in their eyes, they called Animal Control to come and take her away. They kissed her goodbye one last time before the nice gentleman from the county came to take her away. They prayed someone would adopt her. She was going to a high-kill shelter, and they knew they would never see her again. This was probably her last car ride.
Angel was lucky. She was adopted from the shelter by someone who was willing and able to get her the surgery she needed.Angel is a sweet girl; it's hard to think that she might have been euthanized simply because she had an accident and her owners couldn't afford to get her the proper medical care.
