About the Campaign
Hope for Hope!
This sweet girl is only three and needs her eye fixed!
Nanette and Ray are like many other seniors living off of social security trying to make ends meet. They recently moved back to California from Saint George, where they had lived for a while because it was more affordable. That’s where they adopted Hope during the COVID-19 pandemic, to help them through the challenging times. All of their children and family are in California, so they got very lonely and decided to move back to be with them and, Ray had some health issues, and he underwent radiation treatment.
During this time, Hope had been a constant companion and source of comfort for Ray. But, recently, Hope has been suffering from a cherry eye and developed bladder stones. They took her to the vet, and after consultations that cost over $500, they switched her to a special food that resolved the bladder stones.
However, Hope’s cherry eye needs treatment. The veterinarian told them that if left untreated, it could clog her tear ducts. They tried using eye drops to remedy the problem, but Hope did not like them. Nanette and Ray have been struggling to come up with the funds since October. They are worried that they might not be able to afford the treatment for their beloved Hope.
Hope is only three years old, and they believe the bladder stones are gone, and they have her diet under control, which costs $130 per bag.
Nanette and Ray love Hope dearly and want to give her the best care possible. They are now seeking help from the community to raise funds for Hope’s treatment. They are appealing to anyone who can help them with donations of any amount to ensure that Hope gets the care she needs. The current estimate is rather expensive, so we are working on getting a second opinion, and think we will be able to get this done for Hope at a lower price.
The surgery is urgent, as it has been delayed over 6 months now, so we have started the fundraiser now as we concurrently work on a lower estimate. As always all donations are only paid to the veterinarian, never the owner, so all donations will go to Hope’s procedure. Let’s get this done for this young dog, so she doesn’t end up with permanent damage to her eye or even blindness.
