Owner left with $20,000 vet bill refuses to let dog die, raises money to save her life

What would you do to save your pet’s life? For many pet owners, there’s no limit: people have scraped together the cash to pay off even the steepest vet bills, if it means keeping their best friend alive.

Recently, one man was faced with a whopping $20,000 vet bill to save his beloved dog, and was willing to sell his house to make it happen. But thankfully, a miracle happened instead.

Jaxon Feeley, from Wigan, England, is the owner of a 2-year-old Weimaraner named Rambo, and last month he experienced every dog owner’s nightmare as the young dog suddenly became seriously ill

“She began vomiting throughout the night over 30 times and by Saturday morning we were in the emergency vets,” Feeley wrote. Rambo had gone into hypovolemic shock, and also had gastroenteritis.

The dog spent many days in intensive care, and though her condition stabled, her medical bills soon began to add up.

“Rambo’s insurance has covered her up to £6500. Her bill is now up to £11,500 after 1 week in care,” Feeley wrote. “It is unknown how long Rambo will need to stay at the vets and intensive care costs is approximately £1000 per day. If the worst happens and Rambo requires major surgery, the cost of this as well as the aftercare is something I need to be able to give my little baby girl.”

Despite the astronomical cost, Feeley said he would do whatever it takes to provide his beloved pet with the care she needs, even if it meant selling his own home to get the money.

“There was no way in hell I was ever going to give up on this gorgeous girl, she is just a little baby, with a want to live and be happy with her big brother Rocky and the Feeleys,” the owner wrote.

Thankfully, he didn’t need to, thanks to the kindness of strangers. He set up a GoFundMe account, explaining Rambo’s story, and many people were moved to donate.

It raised more than Feeley could have dreamed of: as of this writing, the fundraiser has made over £25,000, more than doubling the initial £10,000 goal.

Feeley received even better news: Rambo’s condition continued to improve to the point where she was finally able to come home, he wrote in a February 4 update.

“Over the last 3 days, Rambo has pulled off a miracle, hour by hour she has increased her oxygen efficiency, started eating and drinking, her lungs are slowly recovering and we started to see that beautiful little personality resurface. She got herself into a little routine of seeing me for 10 minutes every 4 hours that she even knew what corner of the waiting room to find me in.”

Feeley and Rambo are now home together, and thanks to the kind donation of strangers they’ll be able to afford any care Rambo needs.

“There are no words to express how grateful I am for everyone’s love, support & donations over the last 2 weeks. It genuinely means more than you will ever know,” he wrote.

It’s true that people will do anything for their pets, and it’s inspiring how determined this owner was to keep his dog alive.

Thank you to everyone who came through and donated to help Rambo! Please share this incredible story!
