ACTORS & OTHERS FOR ANIMALS
May 17, 2012

I feed, vaccinate and take care of anyone's pet that needs it. Including spaying/neutering. I normally only have one or 2 animals fixed at a time, so, I don't ask for financial assistance because I go to the local humane society because they don't cost as much. This time I'm fixing 7 dogs at a time and I'll be fixing a cat in the near future. I had all the dates set, but I just didn't think I could do the nearly $600 it was going to cost. That included surgery, rabies shot and expected extra costs for one of them. I of course cannot administer rabies because that has to be done by a licensed veterinarian. Anyway, I just didn't think June would be a month I could afford it and called to reschedule the appts. and the receptionist suggested three charities that could help. I figured if I could just get $10 per dog from each charity I'd cut my cost in half. So, I emailed actors and others and then called Monday because I know they've got to be swamped all the time, most animal organizations are, and the lady I spoke to was very nice. I didn't give her a chance to offer more than $10 per dog and she was nice to give it to me. Later the same day Beverly called me in response to my email and I told her I'd already spoke to someone and she'd pledge $10 per dog for me. Beverly and I argued for a few minutes about why I wasn't asking for more than that since they weren't my own pets and because on top of their medical needs I typically take care of daily needs for these animals. In the end she pledged $30 per dog. I could't believe! I told her starting in July I will return the favor by setting up a monthly donation of my own.
