Help Chewie and Vader and their feline friends be free of fleas for one year!

Five months ago, the most devastating thing happened. A seemingly healthy, 30-year-old man died of a heart attack, leaving behind his fiance, 2 Pugs and 3 cats. This man was my friend Jay. Just 5 days before he and his fiance Dannel had come to the Pug Crawl to support my own 2 dogs in the costume contest. Now he's gone. Also gone is his income that was helping to support fiance and their pets. I have been trying to keep Dannel social and getting together as often as possible, but when I asked if her Pugs would like a play date she told me they couldn't. They had fleas. The five letter word that can strike terror in the heart of any pet owner. I asked if they were on any flea treatment and was told she could no longer afford it on her one income. She then revealed that she was considering giving up her pets to better homes now that she couldn't provide for them. Then she said that first she was going to sell her home. The house that used to belong to her own Grandmother that she had purchased years ago, because she would rather keep her pets who were so dear to her and all she had left of her fiance. Can we help her people? I've found the best price I could for one year of flea treatment for her 2 dogs and 3 cats. Can we at least give her that? Help me out here people. I know money's tight for everyone, but this is better than helping out all the wonderful yet faceless charities we donate to every year. This is a real person, my friend, who needs some help. This is also URGENTLY needed. Sorry, there is no time to think about it, just GIVE. I will collect all the donations and at the end of the week I will buy as much flea treatment as we can and give it to her with a card from anyone who donated.
