I never wanted children. Well…now I have them. They just happen to have fur and four legs. My animals are my family, and thanks to PAWS/LA, my family is healthy.
I turned to PAWS/LA for help because taking care of “special needs” animals can be extremely challenging for seniors like me, struggling to pay for our own healthcare and necessities.
I heard of PAWS/LA quite accidentally. I was taking my cat Frankie to the vet’s office and someone told me to call your office.
I needed help, so I called and you listened.
I qualified for your services and I have been receiving PAWS/LA’s assistance ever since. I honestly don’t know how I could keep my animals without the support of PAWS/LA.
When I adopted my cat Frankie and my sweet dog, Cora, I had no idea they both had chronic health issues. But I love them, and I made a commitment to keep them safe and to care for them as best I could.
These babies are my pack. They are a responsibility I took knowing there might be bumps in the road. But given the joy they provide me on a daily basis, there really is no downside.
I hope more people can learn about PAWS/LA and support your efforts to help families like mine remain healthy and happy for many years to come.
