The Humane Society were kind enough to pay for my dog's expenses before he passed away. Please help me donate to show appreciation.

This money will go to the Humane Society of Fairfax County of VA and hopefully help other dogs in need of medical care. I could not afford to take my dog to the vet. Janice Adams from Humane Society was kind to help out. My dog was in critical condition. Since dogs don't talk, they can't tell you what symptons they have or how they're feeling. It happened so fast.

Fido quickly got violently ill. He became blind and his brain no longer functioned well. It was best to put him to sleep. I couldn't bear to hear him crying and I didn't want him to suffer anymore. Fido was a good dog. He was loyal and funny.

I took Fido in a year ago from a lady who no longer was able to take care of him because she was moving to place where they did not allow pets. She let me know that Fido's previous owners had abused him and starved him. I noticed he was scared of sudden movements and felt threatened at times. But he slowly learned to trust me and my family. He was very territorial and protective of the family. A loyal dog. He was also a shy one. But I fell in love with the dog and his flaws because he was such a sweetheart. And I couldn't of asked for a better dog. My parents didn't like the idea of keeping Fido but they warmed up to him, exactly what I was hoping for. I always treated him as if he was a baby even though he was a middle-aged dog. It broke my heart to see him suffer. But everyone keeps telling me, that he's in a better place and it was best.

My father went bankrupt and we recently lost our house. I'm attending community college and receiving financial aid for my classes. I don't have a job because I struggle with depression and social anxiety which makes it difficult for me to communicate with people without feeling very anxious around them.

I want to show Humane Society appreciation for doing the best they could to save my dog and paying his expenses. That's why I'm doing this fundraiser for anyone interested helping me donate. I hope Humane Society continues to do what they do best and help other dogs in need. And I hope this money will help them do that.
