Fundraiser link: http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/help-kato-beat-heartworms/83344 Hey everyone! I see fundraisers get really successful on here, so I’m hoping Tumblr can work its magic for Kato too.
My dog Kato has heartworms. Heartworms are very, very serious and can be fatal if not properly dealt with. The treatment has been quoted at $873. When I told my friends and family that I needed help paying for it, they were surprised someone would “spend that much on a dog.” I only make $8,000 a year at my shitty part-time job, and it will be really hard to pay for this on my own - but not paying is not an option.
Kato brings a smile to the face of everyone he meets. He’s a rescued heeler mix, saved from death row in a rural Colorado shelter two years ago. He’s been with me through lost jobs, through evictions, through a move 1,000 miles across the country (as an emotional support dog, he got his own seat on the plane next to me!), and through the emotional ups and downs I could not have gotten through without him. He is the reason I get out of bed in the morning; he’s why I leave the house at all. Kato is my four-legged soulmate and while it may have been that I saved his life that day two Januarys ago, he saved mine with the way we’ve bonded.
The fact that he’s sick makes my heart hurt, and I can’t imagine a life without him. Kato is only 5 years old and deserves to live beyond another decade. I promised him when I adopted him that no one would ever abandon him again, and that promise holds true through this diagnosis. $873 is a small price to pay for the life of a priceless dog, but I still need help raising the money.
Won’t you please help Kato survive his diagnosis so we can live together in the happy forever home I promised him two years ago? Anything helps. If you can’t donate, that’s okay! Share, share, share! Thank you so much Tumblr!
