Many of you know me through rescue and know that I have helped you and helped to save many animals with donations for your pulls or pulling myself. I have pulled hw positive sick dogs with my own funds and always volunteered in many other ways to transport, home visits, moral support and worked for many rescues.

I have never asked for help and hate to now but, "this help is not for me", it is for a sweet, young college student who needs our help to save her best friend.

Ashley is a 21 yo college student in Gainesville Fl. She was raised by a single mom and she is putting herself through nursing school.

She is a good girl, with a huge heart and loves animals, just like we do. She works full time and has and apartment to support, as well as tuition to pay. She has always paid for routine vetting but this is far from routine.

She adopted Fluke, a yorkie/ shitzu x at 2 months old and he is  only 8 months old now. He is utd on his shots and he is her best friend!!!

5 days ago Fluke stopped eating and started vomiting. At my urging Ashley called the emergency vet and was given a $2k plus estimate to bring him in Friday night.

Knowing that was far beyond her reach she nursed him through the night and brought him to her own vet Banfield Saturday morning,

After $700+ in testing, they ruled out parvo and the likes, he appears to have an intestinal blockage. They gave him IV fluids, a bunch of meds and sent him home in Ashley's care hoping he can pass it with fluids.

Well sadly, he is still vomiting now (with blood )and she rushed him back the first thing this morning, He will likely need life saving surgery to clear the blockage.

Please help me, help Ashley save Fluke's life, he is her best buddy and companion and she is doing everything she can but, she needs our help. It is very likely surgery will be another 3k or more and of course she just cannot afford this.

Any amount you can donate is not too small, it all adds up! If we all could give a something . I have set up a fundraiser to help Ashley and Fluke.

You can donate through paypal as an guest and don't even need to have an account . if you prefer to donate directly to the vet. Banfield Vet Hospital 3736 SW Archer Rd. Gainesville FL 32608, phone is (352)377-3769. It's under Ashley Owens and Fluke.

The funds will go directly to saving Flukes life and paying his vetting fees. Please help me, help her to save this pups life.

Thank you for considering and donating. Best Always, your fellow dog rescuer.
