Pippi Lives: The Angel Fund Needs ICU

Pippi being loved back to health by ACT’s staff

One way that we care is through your donations to the Angel Fund.  Angel was the first little pit that was found by the side of the road, so skinny that her ribs protruded and she couldn’t lift her head.  One of our volunteers nursed her back to health but couldn’t afford the medical care, so we put a jar out and flyer and we asked for help through the Angel Fund.  The donations covered Angel and the concept took hold, so it now covers other destitute situations that come our way.

The Angel Fund went into the deep red for Pippi.  But the good news is that Pippi lives!

Pippi is the light of his mom’s life.  She’s had many hardships and Pippi is her only anchor.  They are like Salt and Pepper.  Peas in a pod.  Yin and yang.

Mom worked hard to get out of a homeless shelter when they would give her a roof but not extend it to Pippi.  Back in a very humble but private space, Pippi recently fell ill.  He was unable to eat or use his litter box and cried out whenever anyone came near him.  Mom thought it was something that would be cured with antibiotics, but didn’t have money for even that and felt guilty and helpless and very depressed.

Then Mom heard about ACT and a friend paid for an exam.  The horrible news was that antibiotics would never touch what was wrong with Pippi.  He was in lots of pain from a blocked bladder and stones he could not pass. The reality that she could lose her baby showed on her face as shock, but was soon replaced with relief when the medical team at ACT was determined to find a way despite Mom’s dire financial situation. The surgery and aftercare took 3 long days and ran around $1500, including two nights of aftercare that ACT had to outsource.

Now, Pippi is home and Mom is loving him back to health.  But the Angel Fund is in trouble.  It’s underwater. That’s the bad news.  But we can fix that with your help!   Click on Donate, and in the special instructions text box, write in “FOR ANGEL FUND.”  We will send a note of your compassion in your name to Pippi and his Mom.
