Father Christmas

"Bear With Us"

Hi there! My name is Jasmine, and I have always been a huge animal lover. My mom raised us kids to be compassionate towards ALL living things, and often helped her rescue racoons, bunnies, birds of all sorts etc. This year I came across an animal rescue that had a unique looking dog up for adoption. I can't explain why, but I had this strange feeling that I was MEANT to adopt this 3 year old dog "Bear". Mom and I instantly fell in love after meeting him. However, within the first week of adopting Bear, he had a health crisis where he nearly died. The vet said, had my mom arrived 15 minutes later, he wouldn't have survived. It may have only been a week, but I already couldn't imagine a life without Bear. After extensive testing, the Vet is pretty certain he has an adrenal glad disease called "Addison's". He has to be monitored all the time, because if he has another episode he has limited time to get to the animal hospital. He's being treated with weekly injections of Cartrophen, and is doing much better now. The rescue knew he was ill, but somehow failed at relaying this information before we adopted him. We promised Bear a forever home, and that's exactly what he has! His previous owner couldn't afford the vet bills....and truth be told, we can't either, but I am determined to find a way. I will NOT let him be ripped away from another family that he loves! Unfortunately, Bear also has severe luxating patella in his hind knees, and will be needing surgery in the near future. These are expenses we weren't expecting right away, and so I'm hoping that Bear's story will touch other's hearts too, and inspire a wave of generosity! If you would be willing to skip your daily cup of coffee, or bought lunch, and donate a small amount to Bear's cause, it would mean the WORLD to me. Words cannot express the gift you'd be giving to our family! My mom is very ill with a rare blood disorder (daily tranfusions), and unable to work. Unfortunately, my job as a waitress doesn't really cover Bear's medical needs....so this really does mean more than you could imagine! Thanks for taking the time to read our story, and please pass it on to your family and friends! :)
