Beau is a two-year-old male Vizsla. Vizslas are a high energy breed that love people and play. They are affectionately known as the 'Velcro dog' due to their propensity to be as close as possible. Beau has been the perfect third member to our family, he marathon trains with my wife, goes on hikes in the woods with me, and curls up next to us on the couch every evening. Due to his energetic nature, Beau gets a minimum of 2 hours of play time daily. Thankfully there is open land near our apartment and a number of dog parks in the area. He gets to run through the woods, chase squirrels, play with friends at the park, greet the neighbors, and just enjoy life. Last week I took Beau out to play as usual, as we were about to head home he was in the woods just out of my sight when I hear him cry out in pain. I immediately called him to me as I ran towards his cry. He came hobbling towards me, and I knew something was very wrong. Blood was pouring out of his right hind leg with a gash deep enough to expose the bone. Beau had severed two tendons and an artery on a broken glass bottle someone had thrown out there. We rushed to the emergency clinic down the road to determine the extent of the injury and the needed intervention. If Beau was ever going to be able to use that leg again, he needed surgery to repair the tendon damage and a long period of immobilization to allow healing. We had money set aside for Beau in the event of an emergency but never imagined it would be this expensive. His initial care, medications and surgery cost $2450, the sling to keep his leg immobilized for the next 4-6 weeks cost $300, and the follow-up care adding much more to the total. We could not afford the necessary procedures, but without it we knew we would be ruining his chance for the quality of life he deserves so we went forward with the care he needed. Now we’re reaching out to fellow pet lovers for help paying his vet bills and ensuring he gets the care he deserves.
All Chances complete 30 days after they are first Submitted for Verification by the Pet Owner. The reason they end at all is because credit card refunds must be issued if the funds cannot be raised and, therefore, the treament will not be provided.
So, if a Chance will not be fulfilled by a doctor/provider within 30 days, the money must be refunded to the people who made donations.
Shortly before the Chance completion date Pet Chance will try to work with the doctor/provider to see if the treatment can be fulfilled with partial funding.
Our goal is to fullfil as many Chances as possible!
We call it Pet Care Assurance...
At Pet Chance, our goal is to empower pet owners to make the right decisions for their pets. By funding Chances where owners have already incurred debt we are giving the next owner facing that daunting decision confidence to provide their pet with the care it needs.
The more Chances where treatment was already provided to get funded, the more likely it is owners (and vets) will make the right medical decision first, and handle the financial obligation after the fact.
We encourage you to support the work we do to help pets and their owners so we can continue to run PetChance.org.
Our world-class customer service and national impact has honored us with Top Nonprofit awards from Great NonProfits. We can only do this thanks to your generous contributions!
