Chubbers: Pekingese urgently needs treatment
Posted 20 February 2012 - 02:33 PM
It is sad that an outburst, such as the above, was even delivered. From the start Patti Jo never took one suggestion or followed any avenue other than that of her own mind. Many people tried to help but the help was not wanted. So many times, I just wanted to ask her if she read the FA information but I refrained, not wanting to add fuel to the obvious fire.
I hope all the Angels out there continue with IMOM and help with their goals of Helping Pets In Need! That IS what it's all about! I feel there was no deception on the part of IMOM, I am not so sure about the owner.

This must be the part where IMOM scammed all of us poor unsuspecting donors... Guess PattiJo missed the part where we can ask for a refund if we want. I donated for Chubbers, but chose to let the General Fund (sorely depleted by so many emergencies) have the money instead of a refund. Believe me, I don't think anyone who is a regular donor/sponsor is going to react any differently, and if anyone else questions IMOM's integrity, let'em read just a few of the testimonials from grateful folks whose companions were saved by IMOM.

Thank you all for your support and kind words. And for those of you that are former PIN cases at IMOM, thank you for sticking around and helping the new PINs. This community is really a family filled with IMOM Angels! (And I am SO lucky to be part of it!)

I too hope that Chubbers is on the mend. And, I have to add that I too do what I do for the animal...I consider my family here at IMOM extra special people...but, yes, there have been times that I've closed my eyes took a deep breath and tried to remain calm...and it's all because of the animal.
They are poor defenseless beings that for no cause of their own are in trouble...IMOM has been here for thousands of them over the years...and with luck...will still be here for many more.
I for one am proud of the work that IMOM does...and I am proud to say that I help even if it's just a little...I cannot imagine what the volunteers of IMOM have to go thru...dealing with upset, worried and sometime angry pet owners...veterinarians...questions, not only from the PIN parent, the vet but also the supporters...I say BRAVO to hem...and THANK YOU for what you do, each and every day.

I still get a gold star because I'm not saying what I'm thinking, just letting her know what she needs: (you may have to click on it.)

Shame on Patti Jo for saying such hateful things about a charitable organization. I sincerely hope Chubbers gets well and lives a long and happy life. That is what matters here - that Chubbers gets the care he needs so he can be healthy.

-and 3 special Sheltie Angels...Sable, Megan and Lacey Jane
-and 2 special Chihuahua Angels.....Callie (Chunky Monkey) and little Peanut

Thank u volunteers for all u do. As a very grateful mom of PIN kids I want u all to remember every single day the PIN kids that are here becuz of what each of u do. The angels donate and sponsor our PIN kids and help keep them alive, but without IMOM and the volunteers there would be no place for us to even have angels helping our kids.
I totally understand being willing to do anything for my boyz- but for someone to do something at the expense of other PIN kids by bashing IMOM and trying to drive donors away is inexcusable.
I sincerely hope Chubbers fully recovers.

I know that IMOM has given families something that I had no chance of getting with My Magic Cat...more time with a beloved companion and furry friend. That makes everything we do worth while.
Does it bother me when IMOM is attacked? Of course it does but only because I fear that people who don't know us will believe the rhetoric and that will have a direct effect on how many PIN kids we can help.
Everyone who is involved with IMOM makes sacrifices. Our volunteers make sacrifices so they can all do their part to help by giving their time, as well as making monetary donations. And our supporters make their own personal sacrifices so they can help the animals.
When someone comes along and wants to take the wind from our sails my attitude is always the same. Go ahead and try but there has been too much good done for anyone to bring us down.
IMOM has been around for 13 years and we're not going anywhere.
Thank you for your continued support
Spay and Neuter -- It's the right thing to do!
From 1998 through 2009, 3.89% of IMOM emergency cases have been for something that could have been prevented had the pet been spayed or neutered.
Pyometra is a serious uterine infection that is potentially fatal and can occur in unspayed animals.

My hat is off to you, that LBK, the IMOM volunteers, and aunties.
You are an amazing woman, and because of you all I have my little monkey here with me .
He is now nearly 6 months old, and 40 lbs.
He would not have made it to 3 months without you all.
The thought of what you all do , on a daily basis brings tears to my eyes.
I have never met such an amazing group of people, with one common interest and goal.
Helping People Help Pets, helpless animals who would otherwise die or be euthanized.
We all know first hand what these animals bring to our lives, each and every day.
The unconditional love, friendship, companionship, and joy.
Anyone that knows you, knows Imom, knows this community..... knows better.
The attack was uncalled for, on soo many levels.
I dont know, nor do I want to know the full story.
I am glad Chubbers seemed to be improving as well as Patti's posts indicated, and
I do hope he continues to improve until he reaches a full recovery.
As we approach the Anniversary of Magic's passing to the Bridge I just want you all to know that Foru and I will be lighting a candle that day , and Thank God as we do every day for Jackie, Magic, and the community of supporters that has created such amazing miracles for so many animals and families.
My little monkey would not be here today, there is no doubt about that.
I cant even count on both hands how many times we heard the word euthanasia.
But I never gave up, nor did the Monkey, or Imom... and here is is today running , jumping, playing, and thoroughly enjoying every moment without a care in the world...LOL.
He acts as if the world is his playground, and everyone he meets is his friend.
he can make a game out of anything as you have seen in some of his video's, but he has such an intense human connection that it is just amazing.
Each day that goes by, I fall deeper , and deeper in love with him ( like that is possible).
I guess I should say every day he does something so cute, or attentive that I fall in love all over again.
These are days we would have never seen, as he grows and develops into the little man he was meant to become.
He never ceases to amaze me,
There is no doubt in my mind , or anyone else's that my little monkey would have died that aweful night in December.
But because of you, and all you do he is here with us, along with so many other PIN that are enjoying life with their owners do to sponsorship , the GF, and all you do and give on a daily basis.
I could go on, and on, but I wont.
More video's of the monkey are on the way!
Its been hard because his best moments are when he doesnt see me watching him. Once I take the camera out and he notices me when he is at play all he wants to do is come and sit in front of me and stare me in the face ...like " what now mom?"
He loves to sit outside when the wind blows and chase leaves when they blow across our yard.......I watch him and it truly makes my heart smile..
He is also a watch dog, and has recently learned a BIG boy bark which he loves to show off when anyone comes over , including the mailman.
But once he sees who it is, he can hardly contain himself and runs over with nothing but love and affection in his heart for everyone he sees, or meets.
There are countless amazing animals , and loyal family companions that are around today because of you all and everything you do.
I am soo grateful, not only because you saved my monkey but because of everything you all do and contribute on a daily basis in memory of that LBK.
So many animals would not be alive today if it were not for IMOM.
As I said in the beginning of my post, My hat is off to you all , and we will be forever grateful, and support you all any way we can for the rest of our days!
Before and after photo's will finally be posted tomorrow on our thread.
God Bless you all!
Dawn , and Foru ( the monkey)
