This page is dedicated to raising funds for Sheilla Dingus, a hearing impaired woman in Kingsport, TN. I would like to say that she is doing everything she can, including having yard sales, every weekend. They have been successful and with that profit and a few donations, together they have kept her in her home. The goal is to help her stay afloat until her disability insurance starts. She is in the final stages and it looks promising that she will be "safe" soon....according to her case manager. In the meantime, any help is appreciated for those of you who wish to donate. And for those of you who are not familiar with her story, Sheilla's service dog and companion, Lucy, disappeared from her yard in April along with her littermate, Reese. These dogs were Sheilla's family as well as her lifeline. To say that she is devastated is a gross understatement. Very early in the search, Sheilla lost both hearing aids while out searching in a rural area of TN and is now unable to hear. She was employed prior to this tragic event, but without her service dog and hearing aids she is now unable to work. Only compounding the situation, she began battling illness made worse by stress. She is suffering from extreme vertigo. She is not on disability and has no source of income right now except yard sales where she is attempting to sell all of her possessions to remain in her home. She has no health insurance or support from family. Lucy and Reese ARE her family. She is still trying desperately to find them, but is facing eviction. She has applied for aid and is seeking medical treatment, but without help from kindhearted, compassionate people willing to help ,she will be homeless in about a month. Our goal is to keep her in shelter and food and utilities until she can receive some type of financial aid and get back on her own two feet. Sheilla does NOT live a lavish lifestyle and we are not asking you to support her without further information. We have a facebook page that's been set up ever since her babies went missing and there is plenty of background to be read there. I can personally verify that she is someone who has dedicated her life to helping other people and rescuing animals and now it's time we rescue her from being homeless. There is only so much tragedy we should stand by and watch before intervening. Please, if you feel led to do so, donate and help us keep Sheilla from being homeless and ensure that Lucy & Reese have a place to come home to. Thank you so much! https://www.facebook.com/ComeHomeLucyAndReese
