A woman contacted a case manager at Feeding Pets of the Homeless very upset and worried about her 9-year-old micro-Chihuahua, Kylie. She had been experiencing some dental issues.
Kylie had an abscess in her mouth that was causing her not to eat, her cheeks and neck glands were swollen, puss was coming out of the abscess and she had a very bad odor coming from her mouth. The woman had been homeless in her dad’s tow yard for 2 years. Unfortunately, she and her dad do not have a good relationship and he would not let her stay in his home with her dog.
They had been living in her vehicle. She was a victim of the pandemic and when everything seemed to go up in price and living was costly, she lost her job and eventually lost her home. It was just her, her vehicle and Kylie, whom she loved dearly.
Homeless verification was provided through a food pantry she visits every day for food for herself and Kylie. Once homeless verification was accepted, her case manager started to look for a veterinary hospital that could get Kylie in and examine her tooth abscess. Kylie was seen by a Partner Animal Hospital nearby and dental work was done the next day with the same hospital.
Feeding Pets of the Homeless was able to contribute $1,570 towards Kylie’s care. A big thank you to our donors who helped this cute micro-chihuahua get her dental procedure done and get her back to eating and happy again!!
