WE'RE HONORED TO HAVE HELPED
If it wasn't for D&OUA Foundation Clyde would still be extremely restricted on a daily basis on exercise. He had double hip dysplasia bone on bone. D&OUA Foundation helped pay for the FHO surgery he needed. He's only 3yrs old and we wanted him to live his best with his 3 other brothers. We are so thankful to them!!
On January 19th 2020 my family’s world was turned upside down, my Ju was hit by a car while trying to get inside of my car to go for a ride. (One of her favorite things to do) which caused her front leg to be broken. This couldn’t have happened at a worse time mentally, and financially. I had just recently stopped her wellness plan in the summer due to financial reasons. I have never been in this situation so I was unaware of how costly a veterinary bill could be! So of course I was overwhelmed when I was told her bill would be a few thousand dollars. I spent my entire paycheck getting her care the day of the accident but there was more to be done. I started a Go Fund Me that didn’t turn out so well . As I was running out of options I thought I would try to reach out to some fellow dog lovers but, in all the Facebook groups I am apart of asking for donations are not permitted! I thought I would try my luck anyway and I reached out to “Long Bois & the House Hippos” they responded back quickly and explained to me that they couldn’t ask for donations but all was not lost because they then told me about the D&OUA Foundation! I filled out an application and I received an response within 48hrs! Communication was at a 5 ⭐️ and I felt like I wasn’t alone they were with me every step of the way, not only did they contribute to Juju’s procedure but they were also there to give advice before an after. I will forever be grateful for all of their help because I don’t know what I would have done if I couldn’t have saved my baby girl. As of today JuJu is doing great she can still run at a full speed (which is very shocking she’s fast!) she can still jump and climb the stairs as she would if she had all 4 paws. Although I can see a slight change in her spirit she’s making the best of the situation. She gets tired quicker but that’s to be expected we’re working on building her strength. She also has doggie siblings as well as my twin 7 year olds and they’re keeping her on her toes she’s still the boss of the pack! I would like to thank everyone that was involved throughout this process on the behalf of my family and myself what you guys are doing is great keep up the good work!
The D&OUA Foundation has been nothing short of a miracle for my family. Because of them, Moose was able to have his much-needed surgery and given the gift of mobility.
Let me start by saying I AM NOT a cat person and swore I would only have dogs. BUT Preston came into our lives when we needed him the most. A close friend had recently passed away around the same time that the stray cat we found gave birth to a litter of kittens. I decided my girls could keep two and Preston was one of them. My youngest decided to name hers Preston after our dear friend since they were both gentle giants and both had big beautiful eyes. When Preston was about 1, he started getting awful ear infections that would go away with medication but would immediately come back when he was finished with the medication. Finally, we took him in for a second opinion and they determined he had a mass in his ear that if left untreated could cause hearing loss and other problems. The vet also recommended we take him to the WSU veterinary school since they have the proper tools needed to remove this mass. The total cost for surgery was not something I could ever afford on my own since I am a single mother and time has been extremely tough due to COVID. I had a hard talk with my daughter that we might have to put Preston down. I could not bear for my daughter to loss someone else so close to hear heart so I promised her I would do whatever I could to make this surgery happen for Preston. I immediately started a GoFundMe, then reached out to a long-time friend Jeff to see if he could help share our GoFundMe on Facebook. He then informed me that this is what he and his wife do, they help people that need help with vet bills, and he encouraged me to apply. Of course, I did, they made the process easy and were so helpful through the entire process. We really could not have done this without the entire D&OUA team!
If it were not for D&OUA we would not have been able to help Preston. For that alone we are so extremely grateful!
This sweet and very sassy girl is Georgia, she will be 5 years old in September and is the queen of the house. She may be smaller than her brother and sister who are pit mixes but she keeps right up with them. Well in doing so she tore her right CCL in December and thanks to this amazing organization she was able to get repaired but her doctor did warn us that with one tear usually the other one will tear within a year due to overcompensating. My girl likes to go big and didn't disappoint and completely tore her left CCL not even 6 months later. Her first surgery was such a success and she recovered easily I'm hoping for the same with this knee and she can get back to her spunky, bossy, happy self!
