‘Maya’ is a 13-year-old kitty that loves to laze in the sun with his elderly pensioner Mum Tania. Tania has owned ‘Maya’ for virtually his entire life, the soft-natured cat is loyal, quiet and never far from his Mum.

“We just about live out in the garden, he snoozes in the sun most days. If I sit in the lounge he always comes over and tucks in beside me for cuddles, he is always there. He is such good company for me as I am on my own and a constant source of love for me so he really is my best mate and yes he is spoilt….why not.”

Three years ago when ‘Maya’ had really bad pain in his teeth and gums Tania was unable to afford the costs, and being unaware of Pet Medical Crisis meant that she was unable to get the treatment needed. Thanks to the kind nature of Vet Dr.Chris Gallagher from Hallam Park Animal Hospital he sent the application for the cat’s procedure to us at PMC, and it’s been our pleasure to manage the case and donate to cover the costs. Tania whose sister sadly passed away without a will now look forward to leaving the inheritance to help more humans and animals at PMC- stay tuned to learn more about our bequest program in the New Year.

Sue makes room for Vini on her scooter so they are always together

Sue is an aged and disabled pensioner who adores her cat ‘Vini’, but Vini has been in some serious trouble with his teeth and gums. When he was taken to the kind vets at Castlemaine Vet Clinic they realised the cat had broken lower molars with gum recession, which needed to be extracted. Jade from Castlemaine Vet was fantastic in arranging an application to receive help from PMC who jumped at the chance to manage the case and assist alleviating with the financial pressure Sue was under. Castlemaine vets helped with discounting the procedure and PMC covered the difference.

Sue is feeling very blessed this Christmas as ‘Vini’ is in her words – “Her entire world”.

For many people this time of the year can be very difficult and lonely, so we at PMC thank all of you who donate or share what we do to help pet owners that need our love and support most.

Jena is a very well educated woman with a Ph.D., but sometimes even that doesn’t help with getting work when you move across the world to Australia. Living on an aged pension and having only $70 in the bank, living week-to-week becomes a hardship that’s often almost impossible to navigate. Jena lives in a small commission flat in Carlton, but the one thing she can rely on is her adventurous female doggy named ‘Jones’ after the other swashbuckler –INDIANA!

The place is somehow empty without her here this afternoon. She’s such a funny, sweet, independent dog. She has a beautiful temperament – always happy – a joy to have around with a character fit for the hero of any novel.
I could go on and on about Jones. I regard her as my best friend. I cannot contemplate what life would be like without her. Just watching her play makes me happy
.” The beautifully spoken Jena was quoted saying.

When ‘Jones’ seriously damaged her jaw and teeth whilst chasing a ball Jena was faced with the worst prospect she could imagine, losing her best friend for the sake of money or lack thereof.

Racing her loved Scottish terrier to Carlton Vet Clinic for assessment, PMC was almost immediately contacted for help. ‘Jones’ had the surgery at the Lort Smith hospital to fix her teeth. After some recovery time, ‘Jones’ will hopefully be a little more careful in the next few adventure sequels she will star in! Jena is over the moon to have her explorer home where she belongs.
