OT: (Save) My Mother's Dogs
My mother is dying of a terminal disease and she's no longer able to take care of herself. She has three cats and two dogs and my sisters and I live 200+ miles away.
I was able to find the cats a new home (neighbor across the street) but the dogs are a different story. They're 11 years old from the same litter (sisters) of miniature schnauzers, and no one on the block wants them. My mom refuses to let us relocate them to my sister's home as she wants them with her right until the end. We can't keep taking trips down to Long Island to care for them, so we're at a difficult point unless some of you can help.
It's going to cost $500 each month to get a pet sitter to visit them at the house daily and take care of them. They'll be fed, exercised, walked, washed, etc. with this service that we found. It's the only way to keep them in the house with my mom as is her wish.
We've been going back and forth on this and we've come to the following decision: if we can't raise $500 per month for the 6-8 months my mother is expected to live, we're going to bring them in to be euthanized. There's no other way around it. We've discussed it a million times. If we don't raise the first $500 by midnight, May 1, Pepper and Cindy will be destroyed.
Can any of you help? I can provide my PayPal address for donations (please add 3% PayPal fee).
I don't have a picture of them that I can post, but below is a representation of what they look like. Help them. Please.
