First of all: THANK YOU for caring and helping.

My lovely Shelby dog. I've had her with me just shy of 14 years. She's an exuberant, silly, whacky, smart-as-a-whip border collie who I've been convinced would live well into her mid-teens. 

Suddenly, the vet tells me she's got acute renal failure. Acute. Not necessarily chronic. She has developed a kidney infection which is impacting her kidney function. Her lab numbers are sky high. But she's a fighter and she misses her mom and "sister" Molokai.  I know Shelby can have more time with us.  We just need to get her out of the woods. She's supposed to be in hospital for 5 or more days to get stable.  I've been told that this hospitalization and subsequent medications, future lab work, and other procedures will total beyond $3000. Just the labwork cost $200 out of the gate, before she went into the hospital.

Sadly, her self-employed "mom" has been struggling for months with almost no income. I've been trying to do anything I can to bring in an income.  My own medical and dental bills are outrageous, and I've put most every expense on credit cards for the past year. They're maxed out.

I cannot let the lack of funds be the cause of my not being able to save my darling dog. Anyone and everyone who knows me knows my two dogs are THE most important two things in my life. (no partner, children, etc).

Won't you help me save my girl? Molokai misses her. I am not convinced this is her "time" and know she CAN pull out of this with proper treatment.

With deep gratitude,

Andrea T
