Diagnosis: Chronic Renal Failure

Sponsor Amount: $253 - Pockets is fully sponsored

S/N: Yes

Volunteer case worker: Cindy

Pockets is a 12 yr old Beagle that IMOM assisted in October with treatment for a severe EColi/bacterial kidney infection. She receives fluids,multiple medications and supplements daily but she needs frequent monitoring by the vet to assess her condition. Her family is thousands in debt and her costs continue to be hundreds every month. IMOM is trying to raise funds to assist with her monthly exams and tests, such as bloodwork and urinalysis.

Monthly sponsors are needed for Pockets, but Any size donation will help. Please visit our donation page at Donate here! and scroll down to "sponsor a pet" for a monthly contribution, and one-time donations can be made by using the Specific Pin box at the top. Be sure to designate your gift to "CRF - Pockets Castello"

You can read about Pocket's journey at her former thread here:Pocket's first thread Her mom will be here soon to continue to update us on her progress.

Thanks in advance for your support of this very special pet.

Everyday and every chance I got I visited Pockets I didnt want to lose my girl she is a big part of my family.. We started to see inprovement she spent nearly 5 weeks at the vets office I prayed everyday for her recovery.Pockets made it..So home she went I am still giving her injections in fact it is 2.00am and I just finshed at 5am I need to give her some pills through out the day until 10pm at night..I really want to keep her on the road to recovery...I have spent so much and have exsausted my resources..I need HELP..Please help sponser Pockets anything would be so grateful I need to keep moving forward.Please read through everything Pockets has gone through I Love her and she is part of my family..I do not have any kids so I am hopeing you understand my love for pockets..

Before I make a long drive today, I just wanted to welcome u to the "neighborhood". I have kept up, and have in the past posted on Pocket's thread, but let me introduce myself again now that we are "neighbors" in the Chronic Ongoing Illness Forum. I am Tucker and Justice's mom, and they have numerous health issues, but are sponsored for their severe epilepsy.

I am so happy that IMOM has allowed Pocket's to become a sponsored PIN.

As I posted in the past on her thread, many years ago I was in the hospital 3.5 months due to a kidney infection that was resistant to everything but an IV antibiotic. My kidneys shut down, and it was a scary and painful time.

You have been a remarkable mom, becuz many would have given up when all of this first started and sent Pockets to the Bridge. Pocket's is alive becuz of ur dedication, and the angels will see that and want to be a sponsor for her.

Please angels, no sponsorship is too small. Can u help???

Please give Pocket's a hug from me.

Hugs,

Cindy and the boyz

Pockets has a $25 per month sponsor! Thanks so much! Now there's just $228 left to go.

Folks, the amount we're trying to raise is only part of the charges Lisa's family incurs every month. Her bills are mounting, but we can still help. Please donate for Pockets, even $5. You'll help save a life.

Hi, Lisa,

I've been following Pockets' story, and your remarkable devotion to her. Visiting her constantly when she was hospitalized and fighting for her life.....wrapping her in a blanket and sleeping on the floor with her to keep her warm....medicating her all through the day and night.....ferrying her back and forth to the vet for frequent monitoring.....and keeping everyone here updated with the most sincere posts in which your utter love for her just rings through. Even the name you chose when you signed up for the forum says it all.....theloveofpockets.....Lisa, you have loved this little dog and responsibly cared for her like few others would have.

I will sponsor Pockets for $30/month. Can anyone else chip in a little to help Lisa and Pockets? Even just a few dollars a month would really add up.

All best,

Michele

Thanks, Michelle! Pockets now has $55 per month! WOOHOO!!!

We're still looking for $198 more. If you can spare even $5 per month, please help Pockets. She's been through so much - we can't let her down now. It's very easy, just visit our donation page and specify CRF - Pockets Castello for either a one time donation or as a monthly sponsor. She thanks you, and so do we! :beagle:

Pockets has one more sponsor! She's at $65 now, 25% of the way. Only $188 to go. If 18 people could spare $10 a month, we'd have her vet visits and bloodwork covered. Can you be one of those 18?

Click here to help Pockets Castello. and thank you!

Pocket's Mom loves her so much and has worked really hard to get her well again...she needs our help to continuing making sure that Pockets stays that way...

I know that we can help...if you can't be a monthly sponsor a ONE TIME DONATION will help to give her a cushion while we work on getting monthly sponsors...it should would be a great Christmas present for Pockets to know that her Momma won't have to be worried about her. Judy

Hi Lisa,

Welcome to IMOM!! I bet you have already found out you have found a very SPECIAL place!

I'm Susan ..was a PIN parent for almost five years until my beloved Zoom, a toy poodle, lost her battle with diabetes due to complications of pancreatitis. But now have another poodle, MisChief ..who has definitely some of that back into my life, but My/ZOOM's thread is In Loving Memory ...just so you know. I can definitely relate to your devotion to Pockets ...they are our family. And you'll soon come to feel like IMOM & members are another extension of that as well.

I pray you get more sponsors ...I will keep you and Pockets on my prayer chain for that...and am sure there's some Angels out there who will come forward to help out. CALLING ALL ANGELS ...PLEASE HELP POCKETS IF YOU CAN!

Hang in there my friend.

:hugs:

Susan, MisChief

& My FurAngel Ms. ZOOM
