We hear heartbreaking stories like the following every day, and we are asking for your help today, so that we can continue to say “Yes” to pet owners in need.
“We got Max at 8 weeks old. He was born in the shelter, and we almost share a birthday. My family are all complex PTSD and anxiety disorders. When I brought him home, he instantly knew that we were his humans. I had a terrible panic attack one morning, so he crawled up on my chest and laid on me, heart to heart, and stayed there until my heart rate was calm again. He is the most loving and affectionate dog we ever had, and he has sincerely improved our lives just by being in it. I honestly do not know what I would do without him. He is my other child. My family has been hit hard with the impacts of COVID-19, and we are currently on public assistance. We can’t bear to lose our beloved pet.”
Max experienced severe allergies that led to broken skin and infection. When his family reached out for help, FOMCA provided a Vet Voucher through our Vet Assistance Program. Because of FOMCA, Max was seen by a partner veterinarian later that same day and received immediate treatment.
Our Vet Assistance Program kept 46 pets together with their families this year, preventing unnecessary relinquishment to the shelter, or worse, prolonged suffering as owners find themselves unable to afford the care they need for their pet. Together with other life-saving programs, FOMCA has provided services to 1,090 Madison County animals in 2021 and we rely on you so we can continue this level of support.
Please make a year-end gift, so FOMCA can be there for beloved pets like “Max”, and no one in need is ever turned away.
