I have two beautiful labradors, vaccinated and insured. Last month I found a lump on JessieJane. While searching online, I was staggered to see how many people can't afford to pay to have small things investigated, if it turns out to be serious they often had insurance that would cover it, but the initial £50 or £100 to check was out of their reach. These folks often didn't qualify for subsidised vet care, they were mainly elderly or the working poor.
Especially we noticed the older animals were being left untreated. Tragically, i do understand that you can't put your family into poverty to check a lump or minor cut on a 12 year old dog - but they still need care and if we had a small fund we could offer to help with the initial consultation at least.
I sat here on the sofa watching my 8 year old girl sleep in a narrow sunbeam on the carpet, knowing that for £48.00 I was able to check she's ok, and I wanted to do something for the others. So I'm setting this up in her name.
If we can raise some funds, we can advertise as a service, making payments directly to the vet from the fund. It's a pay it forward kind of thing, you might need us one day too, there but for the grace go all of us.
