Jo is a disability support pensioner who had been in the hospital for 6 weeks and endured a 14-hour surgery to remove cancer from her body. After her money from her NDIS had all been used on her treatment and recovery, she was unable to afford the flea medication needed for her dog and best friend ‘Muffin’ a Maltese X Schitzu. Jo is without family support and poor little ‘Muffin’ had developed bad skin irritation from what the fleas had done to his sensitive skin. Jo asked for PMC to help her and even though it’s not what we normally do we knew what she had been through and wanted to assist her.

“Thank you once again for your help. It is a great relief to have someone so caring do something so helpful to me and my dog, he is my family in a time when I am not doing so well. It means the world to me and I am very humbled by your generosity and care for my family and my situation.” Jo said to the PMC team.

Exhausted by her surgery and other treatments the very thankful pensioner finally can at least relax knowing for now her 10-year-old boy will be no longer be distressed and itchy.

Francesca is on a disability pension due to several different ongoing conditions. Francesca has also had lymphedema from cancer treatment and 3 cerebral aneurysms. She is a single parent and has suffered from panic attacks with a very limited support network around to help her. When she purchased her dog from a Facebook group she did so after being told how much of a difference a dog can make to a humans mental well being, and it was the right information because her dog ‘Tessa’ has been an incredible support for her since she purchased her at the age of 18 months. ‘Tessa’ loves to snuggle with her mum, and she is so much of an inside girl that if she is put outside for a run she cries at the door. Through some of the toughest times in Francesca’s life, ‘Tessa’ has been by her side.

“Just after I got Tessa she sat with me while I did nothing but cry my eyes out for weeks….she has been my companion ever since and I’d be so devastated if I ever lost her.” Francesca reflected on one of her toughest moments.

‘Tessa’ was hit by a car on 27th December – and the driver simply drove away. ‘Tessa’ sustained an open fracture to her front left leg and was seen by Warragul vet at home as Francesca doesn’t own a car so she could not drive her there. The vet took Tessa to their clinic for diagnostic X-rays and stabilisation, and then ‘Tess’ was taken to the Lort Smith animal hospital with a deposit borrowed from the elderly pensioner neighbour. ‘Tessa’ needed to have the leg amputated but with a significant bill that PMC helped with and thanks to our community and followers for helping.
