Success Stories “Durranis, Minishe and Lala”

Message from our customer via Facebook:
I want to thank you so much for helping our dogs with the vet visit. The oldest one 16 got her eye drops and pain med and her eyes are clearing up and I think she can see a little bit anyway. The meds calm her down so her quality of life has improved . My dog Durranis is scheduled for surgery to remove the growth on his neck. I’m nervous about it but thankful it can be done. Vet said he’s in good shape for 9 years old! And Minishe’s growth he said to keep an eye on it. Everyone was really nice there and didn’t treat us different for being homeless! We are so thankful to you for this help. God Bless you all!

Pets of the Homeless received a call from a disabled homeless woman in Perris, CA. She lives in her car. She’s been homeless for about 2 years, and learned about us on Facebook and sent a message. We messaged her back to call us directly to apply for assistance.

The woman called and was concerned about her two dogs. Durranis, a 9-year-old male Queensland Chihuahua mix had something in his ear and some growths on the back of his neck and one on his belly. Minishe, a 6-year-old female Shih tzu possibly had a tic on her head. We approved examinations at a participating network veterinarian for both dogs.

After the exams, the doctor called our Case Manager. The veterinarian recommended a dental cleaning for Durranis and he had skin nodules that should be removed. We approved a mass removal surgery which is scheduled for November 7, 2018. We are unable to assist with dental cleaning.

Minishe was diagnosed with a growth on her head. The doctor told her to keep an eye on it and to only come back if it changes.
We assisted with $35 each for Durranis and Minishe for examinations.

The woman’s disabled boyfriend who is also homeless living in his truck for the past 2 years had a concern about his dog, Lala, a 16-year-old Chihuahua. Lala seemed to possibly have cataracts in her eyes.  The vet recommended and we approved eye drop medications. We assisted with $95.00 for Lala.
