Mossie and Diane

As the saying goes, “When it rains, it pours.” So it was for Diane and her husband when faced with several costly medical emergencies for their ailing cat, followed almost immediately by the discovery of a lump on the body of their newly adopted dog, Mossie, an adorable mutt with a wide, winning grin.

Diagnosed as a mast cell tumor, their specialist recommended immediate surgery to determine whether it was benign or malignant. Their savings depleted, and with more vet bills still to pay for their cat, the couple was in desperate need of financial assistance for the newest member of their tightly knit family.

And so, thanks to your ongoing and generous support, we provided them with a Home for Life grant to help pay for the removal of Mossie’s tumor.
