I am not one to solicit for help; but in this case, I am soliciting for a relative in need. The relative is my mother’s dog, June Bug. Yes, that’s right, her name is June Bug. She is a six year old Boxer dog.

Recently, I received a visit from a woman in tears asking if I could help her save her dog. She was looking for a home for June. She was literally on her way to the vet to have June put to sleep because she could no longer afford her eye medications, which she needs on a daily basis for a condition called dry eye. Dry eye in dogs can be very serious if left untreated. Being a dog lover, I felt compelled to do something to save poor June from being euthanized. Other than her eye condition, she is perfectly healthy and a real love "bug."

I was successful in finding June a temporary home, but was having trouble finding her a forever home. However, the family she is with now has fallen in love with her and would like very much to keep her. Unfortunately, the family themselves have fallen on hard times with some serious health issues and don’t feel they are in a position to pay for June’s medications either. This is where you all come in. All I am asking for is a small donation from anyone that would like to help keep June in her current home rather than uprooting her again, or worse. If she is taken from this home, it would mean four families in less than a year as she and her mother were both rescue dogs as well.

I know these are hard times for everyone, but if you could find it in your heart to contribute any small amount toward this cause, it would be greatly appreciated. I estimate the cost of her medications to be approximately $760.00 a year. I am just trying to get her through this year and then worry about next year at a later date. I can assure you your donation will go directly to paying for June’s medications and nothing else. Unfortunately, any assistance programs available for pets seem to be for critically ill animals and not for animals with chronic conditions. I have been able to secure some help from a few caring people, but it’s just not enough. Please help us keep June in her current home with people that love her.

Thank you again for your help!
