Default Tasha's vet visit!

Well it is a growth. 2 hours and 145 dollars later she's squeezed and looked through and I have an estimation. Prework to determind what cancer, how bad etc all together is 839 dollars. The surgeon said that the surgery is approx 4500 range and then possible after care. However I got declined of care credit so I will try some other avenues. The Dr wants to start this week, and I have no funds what so ever. I have a few small hopes though. bf's mom said Missy can move in with me and Tasha, but first feliz has to move. But before it was no Missy either, but she has grown ok with that now. And then I have 600 a month over but I need to find a loan, I am contemplating one of them high itnerest loans that ANYONE can get. Once I move I can afford that but Im not sure if I can wait that long for Tasha's sake thats minimum another 4 weeks. The sweet Dr was gonna put in an application for a fund they had for Tasha as well if that gets approved Ill pay that fund back once I moved though. Cause once I can afford it I want to pay cause there are people who will never be able to afford it that needs the money more. I just need the money temporarily for a few months so to say.

Please guys keep fingers crossed, and due to the rapid growth he said that begning tumors can grow like that once in a while but when I asked him how common is it, he didn't want to speculate but I know what the odds are. Im not kidding myself so Im not really much wiser for the moment.

It will be a rough patch till Im through this..
At least the people at the vet place are the sweetest, JGLI really did recomend a good place.

Wow that is not good news at all. I'm really sorry to hear that. Watch out for those high interest loans though. I understand that you want to help Tasha, but there are some real scalpers out there and nowadays the credit market is a tank full of piranhas. That does sound awfully expensive though!

Moo I'm sorry, I hope that you manage to sort something out, I'd be careful where you get your money from to do this as much as possible though. And I hope that once Feliz has gone to her new home that you all manage to settle down together at your bf's mom's house.

Its not so bad if I could only get a loan. I have approx 2500 that I can get loose in two months from this place as soon as I let go of the lease. In another month or so I get approx 1200-1500 in tax refund. So bam there's 3500, granted it's all togehter maybe only half of the amount. but after moving I can clear about 500 a month due to cheap rent so Id be debt free in 7 top 10 months again depending on prices, what happens etc. BUT I need somewhere to loan from thats the big issue. WIth no credit the good places don't trust you so I can't proove anything.

and I dont even know what it is yet.. Once the pretesting is done that might be it as well.. so that is what I want to start with and have that over with. I just want to know what it is Im dealing with..

Poor Tasha and poor Monkey! I agree with the other don't get caught up in these loan sharks they are evil Steer well clear. You work don't you? Can't your bank give you a short term loan over 12 months or so? If you are on a low wage then maybe there is the equivalent to the RSCPA prehaps they could help? Or even contact the vet and see if he will let you pay over a period of time and even offer some extra cash as a kind gesture if he agrees I do wish you the very best Monkey and of course to Tasha give her a gentle hug from me and my girl!

Bigboy US don't function like most of Europe you need to have a credit to get a loan and due to everything I have no savings no nothing and no bank or credit card that is by their right mind will grant me a credit/loan. The more dubious once with high interest might.

I have a few ideas that Im working on all together it might work.
Keep fingers crossed!

Well there's a small progress.
The couple of who wanted to adopt Feliz did get cold feet. The husband don't feel emotionally ready yet which is sad but understandable. I am giving them some time though. However, the woman, has started a small fundraiser to help Tasha cause of all the dogs I have helped. They are so sweet and helpfull.

The vet has put in an application for a foundation that can help as well.

Im trying to bribe bf's mother with 100 dollar extra in a monthly rottie rent if she says yes to Feliz coming with me til she find her forever home. It would be two months before we moved in anyhow which should give her some time. She's a bit scared of the big dogs, rottweilers especilly. IF she says yes, then I can resign this apartment, take out the 850 from work in an advance and pay that off through this month (You have to be done paying by the end of the month when getting an advance) and at least get the prognosis and diagnosis done. After that it would take me about 4 months to get the 75% of the payment together for the surgery but it would likely be more doable IF the grant don't come through.

So keep fingers crossed. The vet said its a good sign though that Tasha is roughousing and being all happy goofy self. So Im holding on to that hope.
