JS Dog’s Owners Die Of Coronavirus; Here Is How You Can Help
This story is a tough one.
But we have to get the word out so Che-Che and the many other pets that will be stuck in the same situation as her can get help.
Che-Che unfortunately lost her two family members when they passed away from the coronavirus.
Che-Che is now in the hands of the Monmouth County SPCA . At first, she was shaking when she arrived but the loving touch of their professionals have since put her at ease.
"We can't imagine what it's like for a dog like her to suddenly lose everything she's ever known and then end up in an unfamiliar place," Monmouth County SPCA wrote on their Facebook page.
Che-Che isn' ready for adoption yet because she still needs veterinary care including dental work, spay, vaccines and our personal favorite, a warm bubble bath.
Plus, it is a lot to be torn from your life at a moment's notice. It would probably be a bit too much to have her adopted into a new home immediately. But when she is ready, Che-Che will be up for adoption.
BUT...there is a way you can help: DONATE!
"Unfortunately, Che-Che is the first of many animals that we anticipate needing a safe haven in these uncertain times," said the MCSPCA. "We're asking for your support NOW so that we can ensure every animal has a loving place to call home while they're temporary without one."
Monmouth County SPCA is asking for donations so they can continue to care for displaced pets who find themselves in the same situation as Che-Che.
There is an anonymous donor who offered to match ANY donation dollar-for-dollar up to $200,000 through August 31st.
They are calling it the MCSPCA Matching Gift Campaign and according to Patch.com, here is how the money will help/be used:
- $15 will become $30 to provide shelter to abandoned dogs and cats
- $25 increases to $40 to help spay and neuter animals
- $50 turns into $100 for emergency surgery
Please give anything that you can spare. Thank you in advance to anyone who donates.
Take a look at the MCSPCA Matching Gift Challenge for more information.
