Treat's Story:

Treat is an energetic goofball that goes full speed whenever he can.  Unfortunately, his joyful enthusiasm lead Treat to accidentally gore himself through the abdomen on a downed tree branch.  We were 45 minutes into a hike along a steep trail when he tried to leap over the branch while racing to the front of our group.  Treat was uncharacteristically brave and was able to hike out with minimal assistance.  This strength led us to underestimate the seriousness of his injury.  The vet advised Treat was extremely lucky since the branch just missed his femoral artery and didn’t hit any organs.  Treat quickly bounced back and although sore, he was back to his old self in a few days.  This surgery was $770.


This past week, Treat became extremely sick and we learned he had a blockage from swallowing the tail of his toy skunk, squeaker and all.  The vet had to surgically remove the toy and sutured various parts of his stomach and intestines.  This surgery was $2441.


A few days later, Treat’s health seemed to be dramatically declining.  The vet determined he tore some stitches in his intestines, which led to fluid buildup and an associated infection. The vet performed a third surgery in less than a month, but wasn’t confident that Treat would be able to pull through.  So far, Treat seems to be holding on and seems to be getting stronger, but the vet advised he isn’t out of the woods just yet.  Treat was able to come home the night of Thanksgiving while the clinic was closed, so I haven’t received the bill for his latest surgery just yet, but I estimate it to be more than his previous two.


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.
