I've reopened the fundrazr. I've decided to start a charity to help animals who need critical care but who's pet parents cannot afford it. While the paperwork is coming together, I've reopened the fundrazr and people can contact me at ginstafford@facebook.com if they need assistance for their pets to find out what the requirements will be (have to be a critical care need, must prove financial hardship, must be approved vet, payment will go directly to vet and may not be for full amount etc) FYI, SOUTHEAST VET SPECIALISTS ARE NOT AND WILL NEVER BE APPROVED. Once the paperwork for the charity fund is set up, it will be called THE ARISTOTLE BOWIE STAFFORD CRITICAL CARE PET FOUNDATION Sadly, Ari lost his battle and passed away in my arms at 415 on Friday July 13, 2012. My heart is shredded and if I can help prevent someone else from feeling this way, I will. Below is Ari's story. Aristotle Bowie is a stray that I rescued at 3 weks old. I bottle fed and hand raised him. He truly is my fur baby. Today he was extremely lethargic and I rushed him to the vet. They pulled blood and it was extremely thin (like red water). His labs came back with bad news. His White blood cell count is 36000 (should be at 18000), red cells are at 12% (should be 30%) & he has low protein. His gums and other fleshy areas are ghost white without even hint of pink. I'm having to force fluids into him with a syringe. The Vet said he needed an immediate and total blood transfusion and is probably bleeding internally. The hospital that does those want nearly $1700 before they will even look at him. If Ari makes it thorough the night (he as sent home with me...I have meds to help him be a bit more comfy) I'm taking him to another vet. I am on workmem's comp due to an injury I sustained 6 months ago and am on a VERY fixed income. I spent my last $250 on the vets today. Please consider donating to help me save Aristotle's life. There are no words for how much this would mean to me. Please help me safe him.
