Aero's Story:

A few months ago (the beginning of July), I went to Texas for my brother's wedding. I had someone taking care of my three rabbits (who live in my room and are a part of the family!). I returned from the airport late at night after my trip and walked into one of my worst nightmares. I found little Aero lying on her back, contorted and twisted so that her head was nearly upside down. She wasn't moving, and it was clear that it had been quite some time since she'd been able to get to her water or food. I rushed her to the vet the next day and got the diagnosis that I had expected - severe head tilt. I discussed the treatment options with my vet and we decided that the most likely cause was Pasturella (based on symptoms and Aero's medical history) and started her on a course of Baytril, which stopped the progression and significantly improved Aero's health. 


However, Aero's head continues to be tilted at a 90 degree angle, and one of her back legs juts out to the side. Because of the awkward positioning of her body, she has several sores that need constant applications of antibiotic ointment to prevent infection. 


Aero's initial vet bills for visits and medication have totalled over $400. In addition, she has also seen a chiropractor twice (which helps to give her improved mobility for 5-7 days before the adjustments wear off), which has brought the bills for her care even higher. 


After doing much research and discussing options with Aero's vet, Aero has started acupuncture treatments. She had her first treatment on 9/19/13, and has shown significantly improved mobility. She will need 6-8 more treatments, once a week, at the very least. Each appointment costs $65. 


I'm a single mom and a full time student, so needless to say the cost of Aero's care has begun to be a huge burden; however, I can't give up on her. Just look at those eyes!


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.
