Thank you to everyone who donated toward Zoey's care!
Zoey's mom wrote a beautiful and detailed review of the help you gave her and Zoey! She describes how she has two cats, that she considers emotional support animals, both on different prescription diets. With Zoey's advanced Idiopathic Megacolon, she only recently learned about the benefits of the prescription food, but her hope was quickly snatched when she realized the cost did not fit into her fixed income. Your donation has made a huge difference for her.
Below is an excerpt from her review.
She talks about how "the organization" helped her, but please realize that she means you. There is no For The Love Of Alex without donors like you.
"I managed to scrounge together enough money to buy her first bag of food and start her on it. And it worked wonders for her! The difference in just a few days of having her on the food… It was like a miracle in a box. So, I started another exhaustive search- this time for financial help. Even if just a little. But I hit dead ends everywhere I turned...
So, on a wing and a prayer I filled out the application, not really expecting anything, knowing that our case wasn’t exactly the typical kind. The next morning I woke up to an email from them. When I first saw it, my initial thought was that they were emailing to tell me they couldn’t help me, so I prepared myself for that- But wouldn’t you know, the amazing people at this organization (YOU) didn’t reject me. They listened to my story. They heard me. They actually cared about us, and they cared about Zoey. When there were dead ends everywhere else, this organization opened their arms and graciously took us in. In the end, they were able to provide 6 months of food for my Zoey, and in turn help me keep providing food for Zico as well. But this goes beyond just helping me keep my cats on prescription diets. Zico and Zoey are my emotional support animals, and they’re my family. The kindness that FTLOA extended to us has such a huge impact on our lives. Not only does it ease so much financial stress, but they gave me hope back. Hope for Zoey’s long term health, and hope that her, and Zico, and I can stay together and live a long, happy, and fulfilling life together. Idiopathic Megacolon is a progressive disease that only gets worse with age. But this food so far has been working wonders for her. It can save her health, and quite possibly her life in the long run. I couldn’t have done it without the generosity and kindness of the amazing people at FTLOA. For taking us in, and saying "yes", when there were no other avenues that I could find, for their kindness and generosity, and above all for giving us hope to keep moving forward. Words can’t begin to express how grateful I am to this organization.
Miracles and blessings come in all shapes and sizes...Thank you so much, FTLOA for being our miracle."
