Andrea opened her heart and her home to Piper, a rescue dog pulled from Miami Dade Animal Services. She and a village of people pulled Piper from the shelter and transported her to Tampa for Andrea to foster. Unfortunately, Piper came with kennel cough--which isn't uncommon in dogs from shelters. Andrea took her to the vet for treatment, and although Piper was pretty sick, she has recovered enough to be looking for a forever home. In the meantime, though, one of Andrea's own dogs was exposed to Piper's illness and developed a severe case of pneumonia. Andrea had to take her dog, Finnegan, to the emergency vet, where chest x-rays confirmed the diagnosis. Finnegan was admitted overnight to receive IV fluids, antibiotics, and nebulizer treatments. After his night at the vet's office, Finnegan spent a few days at home but had to be admitted again to the emergency vet for another overnight stay when things started downhill again with his health. Finally, he is feeling better--but due to the pneumonia he has now developed a secondary infection in his eye, which has required a visit to the veterinary ophthalmologist and more medications, and may cause him to go blind in a spot.

I am asking for help for Andrea in paying Finnegan's emergency vet and ophthalmologist bills. Andrea has always had a big heart for rescue dogs. She has fostered many dogs in her life and will continue to do so. However, this time her big heart for a dog in need have caused large vet bills for her own dog.
