A Clear Future For Keller

Keller is doing great, and seems to be back to her old self!!

— Bush Family —

Being reassigned from Georgia to California in March, this military family of 2 adults and 3 companion pets moved to the area during a very difficult year. Already experiencing the challenge of moving into a new location, COVID-related job loss was making this move even more financially difficult. After months of creating a home and settling in, the family began to feel a little sense of peace in their new environment, regardless of financial struggles still occurring.

In the Fall, as things were settling for the family, one of their furry family members, beautiful Keller, began experiencing eye troubles. The family took Keller to their new vet in September to determine what was occurring. While medications were helpful in easing the pain for Keller, it was discovered she had an ulcer in her eye, and surgery would be needed for her sight to be restored.

Having only one income at this point due to COVID and expenses from the move still weighing on the family, the Bush’s reached out to Max’s Helping Paws for assistance. They shared, “My husband has been unemployed since March due to Covid 19. He has had no buisness after the lock down in Georgia. Since moving to CA on military orders, he cannot claim either CA or GA unemployment.” Max’s realized this family was responsibly reaching out for assistance to make sure Keller got the treatment needed.

With support from our donors, The Doris Day Foundation and AWAG, Max’s was able to provide financial support for Keller to receive the care she needed to clear up her eye troubles and see clearly into the future. It is with glad hearts we can report during our follow up with the Bush’s, they shared, “Keller is doing great, and seems to be back to her old self! I really can’t express how thankful I am for your support!
