IL - 2019

Five years ago, I did not expect to adopt a dog.  But when we saw Coco when he was 3 months old, it was love at first sight.  He became a part of the family.  He was a happy, playful, loving and sweet boy.  

Until last year, he was diagnosed with some infection or fungus on his paws.  That's where the problems began.  I took him to the vet so many times and it seems like the infection keeps coming back.  I did not know what was causing it.  They said it could be allergies.  The infection on his paws or feet has gotten serious.  There was a foul smell and some bleeding.  That really made me worry.  

At the same time, I was having a financial hardship because I'm a single mother of three kids and I also go to school.  My income was not enough.  

I started searching for organization who could help me financially with Coco's clinic costs.  And I found Brown Dog Foundation.  I prayed and hoped that someone would have the heart to help my dog.  I was surprised and so happy to hear from Brown Dog Foundation.  They have approved my application and granted me a gift.  It was such a blessing and I can't thank Brown Dog Foundation and the donors enough for saving Coco.
