Brittney and Puggy’s story
“Puggy came to me through a friend a few years ago, I have another cat named Jasper and they are buddies. I have always had a strong connection to my animals and they mean so much to me. I would do anything to make sure my cats are happy and healthy.
Last year Puggy had some health complications and ended up needing a surgery which was a very scary time. I would visit him everyday at the vet and he was so happy to see me while he was healing. I am grateful the vet was so kind and let me make financial installments on his treatment because it was so expensive.
Since then he has had to go back for several check ups and recently Puggy developed what seemed to be a bladder infection, which meant he needed further x-rays, urine samples, bloodwork and treatment.”
Brittney contacted VHS last week as she was struggling to pay for Puggy’s veterinary care. “I do not qualify for CERB (Canadian Emergency Response Benefits) and I’m a former youth in care living off of very little funding and school bursaries. I also have a disability which prevents me from being able to work and I can’t work during this time due to covid.” She told us that “any assistance would be much appreciated as I can not afford a huge vet bill and have no other resources or people that can help pay.”
“Puggy is honestly the sweetest and most loving cat ever and he is very attuned to my emotions. We both love and support each other when we are in pain, and he loves to cuddle and is very social. I take him on walks in the garden and we sit in the sun together. I couldn’t imagine life without him.”

“Having help from the McVitie fund is a blessing especially during COVID-19. Animals are so special and because of programs like this one people can have support in making sure their animals are healthy and safe. No one should have to choose between their animal and paying for rent or groceries.
