Early this year, we had a request from Sylvia, an elderly lady who had adopted a bundle of trouble named Barkley. Trouble in that he was experiencing the normal problems of age. Sylvia, being a senior herself, had adopted him as a senior dog figuring she would be getting a sedate pet and would not have to put up with the exuberances of puppyhood. She also didn’t count on the higher veterinary costs to care for an older dog. That’s when she contacted CEASE. We have paid for a few issues with Barkley in the past years but now he was not able to eat due to enflamed gums and sore teeth. Thanks to dedicated supporters like the Pedigree Foundation, we had the funds necessary to help Sylvia and other low-income people like her in our community care for their pets when it was most desperately needed. Barkley had a full dental, including periodontal scrapings, and one tooth removed that was especially bad. He is once again eating normally and enjoying his life with Sylvia.
Thank you for contacting CEASE
