Chloë didn't start out as Chelsea A.'s dog, but once the charming and cuddly Maltese mix arrived at Chelsea’s home, she won everyone's heart.
Sadly now Chloë is struggling to get around and needs medical attention immediately.
"Chloë had what was once a small soft bump just under the skin on her belly until a year ago when she hurt it by jumping down off a wall," Chelsea tells Waggle. "Later, it grew enormously until it began to look as it does now. Angry, red, grotesque, ulcerated, and so clearly very painful and difficult for her to walk."
French Valley Vet is ready to remove the tumor, and her outlook is outstanding.
Chelsea is asking for assistance paying for the surgery so Chloë can remain a huge part of their family.
"Chloë was my fiancé's daughter's dog that came to us when she started college and moved into a no-pets residence several years ago," Chelsea says. "It wasn't long before we realized just how special Chloë is. She has become the central part of our lives while she showed us her amazing qualities. She is the kid I never had."
Chelsea says she can’t wait for Chloë to get back to being the bouncy spunky dog she knows.
"Chloë's personality is hard to describe in terms of a dog because she's nearly human, it's very peculiar," Chelsea adds. "She is beyond sweet and patient. She is a hero, a huntress, a lover, a teacher, a comedian, ever playful, empathetic, tender, and there's not enough space to describe the quality of her essence as the best pal ever."
Our pets are our family. Regardless of the “how” or “why”, once they're in our lives, they stay with us forever. Sadly, every year, more and more family members are being euthanized because of income challenges.
Many pets, especially in economically challenged communities, go through this pain. But what if people can help? Help financially struggling families save their best friend.
