Review for Pet Assistance, Inc., New Preston, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since COVID my husbands hours had been cut and I was on workers compensation. Of course our 6 month old lab / pit mix Poppy had an emergency. We took her to the emergency vet and they concluded she had an intestinal blockage. They gave us 3 options 1 surgery would be $4500. 2 sign her over to a rescue and release our rights to her or option 3 put her to sleep. We tried to get care credit, etc but we were denied. After a long night we took Poppy home to figure out what to do. I was online emailing organizations begging for help. In the mean time we found a vet that would do surgery for $1500. I was continually emailing organizations begging for anything. I put a note on Facebook asking my friends for help and in 35 minutes they came up with $965. In the mean time I received a phone call saying Per Assistance would help us with her bill. They called daily after surgery to check on Poppys progress. She is back 100% to her normal self. It would have never been possible without this great organization and people that run it!!
