‘Joey and Fergus’- When chronic pain hurts less because you have love from your doggies

Chronic pain is often unbearable even when the rest of the world you live in is going perfectly. Imagine feeling constant pain leaving you unable to work for years, due to being a passenger in a car accident that rendered you unable to work. Needing back surgery Jennifer took the chance to do what she could, however the problem only got worse post operation. Luckily in this hard luck story we have a pair of heroes ready to save the day. ‘Joey’ is a 15-year-old Jack Russel x Pomeranian girl and ‘Fergus’ is 12-year-old whippet boy.

“My pets have saved your life, if I didn’t have them and their comfort I don’t think I would have coped. They are my family, my kids. I can’t tell you how much your help has meant to me”. Jennifer told team PMC.

‘Joey’ and ‘Fergus’ are all the beauty in the world to Jennifer as she struggles with her back, along with mental wellness issues from head injuries that occurred in the same accident. Jennifer lives with her mum who is and aged pensioner while they struggle to pay the bills that accumulate quickly when you only receive the most basic payments.

Jennifer first noticed that ‘Fergus’ who is slightly built at the best of times, had lost weight and wouldn’t eat his dry food. At the same time ‘Joey’ stopped eating also and seemed unwell. Jennifer, the budding author, knows how deadly serious dental issues can be so she took them to the GAWS veterinary surgery in Geelong. After assessing that the pair of the dogs both needed some fairly urgent dental work, especially ‘Fergus’ Jennifer and the team at GAWS reached out to us at PMC. Thankfully we were able to assist managing and financing both dogs to be taken care of and returning to their normal life free from pain and danger.

Thanks to the Geelong Animal Welfare Society team for helping out, I am sure we will work with you again. Please share our mission where you can and help us grow- social media does help our organisation assist more people every week.
