On December 30, 2019 , I came home from work and found my dog, Nova, looking really sick. She could not move and was shaking. I called my family to ask for their help with money to bring her to the vets because, like many, I was denied care credit.
I brought her to the vet and Nova tested positive for Lyme disease. We started her on medication and it didn’t work. I brought Nova to her regular vet. They said either bring her to a specialist vet or put her down.
I brought her home and syringe fed her, not wanting to give up on her, but nothing worked. On January 7, 2020, I made the worst call one could make to put Nova down because I did not have the funds to bring her to a specialist. After telling my family what was going to take place, everyone was so upset.
Then, I told my best friend what I was doing. She knows Giselle, so she put me in contact with Action for Animals Maine. I had to fill out an application form, provide the denial credit letter I already had, and give it to them. Giselle said, “go ahead and bring her to the Scarborough vet hospital.”
They started her on another plan. Then, Nova starting getting better. Nova now runs around and plays which I thought I would never see again. Thanks to Giselle and Action for Animals Maine, Nova received a second chance at life. Nova brings me and my family so much joy. Action for Animals Maine kept me from giving up on Nova and I will always be grateful for.
Thank you Action for Animals Maine. B.R.
The foundation helped Gracie with being quilled by a porcupine. The cost of pulling quills out is $150. We came to the rescue for the full amount. Sharp ending!
Perky had an unfortunate case of fleas. Rhonda couldn’t manage to pay on her own. We stepped in to save the day.
