Success Story: Journey


A woman and her dog have been homeless in her car for the past three years in Medford, OR.  She parks wherever the police don’t kick her out and receives social security income. When her dog, Journey, a sweet nine-year-old spayed female 11-pound Cavalier kept shaking her head and wasn’t eating much she called Feeding Pets of the Homeless. She learned about us from No Pet Left Behind. We verified her homelessness with a local non-profit organization where she receives services and approved an examination at a partner veterinary hospital.

After the exam, the veterinarian advised us that Journey’s teeth were very bad.  We approved dental extractions which included:  bloodwork, x-rays, hospitalization, iv catheter and fluids, anesthesia, injections, pain medications, and dental extraction surgery.  Unfortunately all of her teeth were extracted but one.  We assisted with $669 and received $70 in discounts.
