My name is Tom Foster and my dog named "Possum" has a seriously dangerous immune disease called "Pemphigus" that if it were left untreated he would have died, I had a regular Vet that I took him to but after all of my money ran out I wasn't able to afford to take him there any longer, I searched around the internet and was about to give up when I was contacted by PAW Team and I was told to bring him in to be looked at and hopefully get treatment, Possum was in rough shape and he was even being considered by the Vet to be put down as that's how bad off he was but no one gave up and he was given medications, medicated shampoos and other supplements and a chance, Since then he has been thriving the only side effect being his hair loss due to the use of Prednisone but I'll take a hairless dog over a sick one full of fur any day, I've had only good experiences with PAW Team, They have always treated Possum and I with great respect and the care they have provided for Possum is the only reason he is still here with me today, I wish I were able to do something of meaning for them as they truly deserve it, One day when I'm able to I will gladly be a volunteer for them and do whatever they ask of me, PAW Team is a great organization that needs to survive and giving to them is a blessing to all of those animals that need them that otherwise wouldn't get the care they deserve, THANK YOU PAW TEAM, POSSUM AND I LOVE YOU ALL!!! :)
