Are you a 501c3: no, i dont know what that means.
Additional Info/situation: The family was moving when they broke down in Junction Texas, the community pulled together to save Potter Pooh from being put down. The family had to travel via bus. We had to donate all our belongings. When the family arrived in Washington, they were displaced and there was no housing as promised to them. They became displaced and Potter has been with Carol at her shelter for 5 weeks now. The family has no gotten a very good place for the dog and also for the whole family. Things are looking up, but a member of the family is still in Junction Texas. Carol is willing to work out a way to get Potter to the airport and has been making sure Potter has all health records available. Sharon, which is me, will be getting Potter certified in state of Washington as a service dog for the children. I will do anything to ensure the dog and boys are reconnected. It is breaking my heart we had to leave our best friend behind to finish traveling. It has been a hard 5 weeks without him and it is devastating the children. In 2010 the 3 of us were in a very traumatic car crash as a result of a drunk driver. The driver of my car, which was my fiance died, leaving very traumatic scars. We were lucky to make it out alive but we bare the scars emotionally and physically. We all worked endlessly to reclaim our health. Potter was the emotional healer to the whole family. The boys are Mason age 6, whom has Traumatic Brain Injury, and everyday he cries for his beloved Potter Pooh. Logan age 11, whom is emotional scarred the most, due to seeing so much death from the crash bonded instantly with Potter when we got him at 4 weeks old. Logan spent hours taking care of this dog. They were never apart. At night Me, Sharon, would have the comfort of Potter to cuddle during the hard times when I needed a friend.
I do not know how to ask for help really about this issue, but all I know is someone out there can help bring us Potter Pooh. being a single MOM, a fulltime online student, and disabled, I simply cannot afford his transport. I need help. Potter needs help before he falls threw the cracks. Carol's shelter is a kill shelter, and she has agreed to keep Potter Pooh safe and loved till he can be reconnected with us all. She believes Potter Pooh is very worth saving and has dedicated a lot of time in his care. Logan is reverting in emotional status and is losing faith. I AM STILL in great HOPES that someone will help us. Please contact me if you can help guide me in the direction of help. The boys named Potter Pooh, he is named after Harry Potter and Winnie the Pooh. Both the boys picked his name. Potter is a silly goofy coonhound but does get nervous a bit. He needs his family back.
