Success Story
Cat or Dog


Lily’s Mom noticed something wasn’t right with her little girl, and took her to the veterinarian right away. After performing some examinations and x-rays, an infection was also discovered near her bladder and rectum. Lily has been treated for several weeks in an effort to avoid surgery, but it isn't working. Lily needs to have surgery to correct this, or she will be another casualty of a feline urinary blockage. 

Lily’s Mom is struggling to make ends meet as she is being challenged by her own personal medical bills. She has had both a hip replacement and a knee replacement in the last two years. Nobody intends to have these emergencies all at the same time. As you can imagine, Lily’s owner’s has exhausted her funds and needs help. Although still struggling with her own bills, her Mom has covered as much of Lily’s medical bills as she can, but it is not enough to bring Lily back to health.

Lily’s owner lost her job due to COVID-19 and is living on unemployment. This simply isn’t enough to make come up with the needed funds. Lily is lucky that her medical situation is treatable. She will need the help of our Angels to get her through surgery and move on to a long life of happiness. 

Please donate towards Lily’s life-saving surgery.

Good news for Lily

This rambunctious 1-year-old needed to stay quiet after her surgery and not jump or get excited for ten days.

When she started feeling better, she got to go outside to enjoy some sun on her fenced-in porch.

Today they received even more reason to celebrate. Lily's liver test came back negative, and she is feeling well and looking good too!

Lily's mom had this to say about her and Lily's experience with For The Love Of Alex:

"My Lily baby was diagnosed with bladder stones. We have some extremely expensive vet bills. And we were looking at a very expensive surgery if diet didn't dissolve the stones. We found For The Love Of Alex and applied. Thankfully we were accepted...
I have been unemployed since the pandemic started and living on unemployment. I've had two major surgeries, joint replacements in the last two years and missed a lot of work. Lily did need to have her surgery as the diet didn't work and the stones grew. She is recovering, happy, and is loving being on the deck in the sun with me and her sister Rosie. Thank you to for the love of Alex for getting us through.
All my love to all the pet families that are struggling and have found these Angels to help."

Thank YOU to everyone who donated to help Lily.
