My name is Ronel and I am from Albertinia, Western Cape, South Africa. We are trying to raise funds to take our basset babies to San Francisco.
We are in South Africa and have a wonderful opportunity to move to the San Francisco area, to build a better life for us. Us being my sister Sarina and I. We were both widowed young - Sarina lost her husband to a heart attack at only 32 and my husband died of lung cancer at 47.
Luckily we have each other and also the loving support of our family. We also have 5 Bassets kids, grumpy Max, big boy Troy, loving Bobby who suffers from epilepsy, queen Chloé and baby Millie, who are our entire world and have no idea that they are anything other than spoiled children. We have to relocate them as well. Leaving them behind is under no circumstances an option.
All but Chloé who came to us at 6 weeks old are rescues and have all of the normal fears and anxieties associated with being abandoned. Ideally they would travel the same time as we do, as, being rescues,they do not cope well with change and have severe separation anxiety.
We are working from home, which also contributes to this, as they are used to having us around all day. We have obtained quotes and so far the best quote is $12,000, which does not include vet reports, inoculations, crate hire, etc. This is an enormous amount on top of the other relocation fees and even after selling everything we own, there is simply no way we can afford this on our own.
This is why we are counting on the kindness of fellow animal lovers, who understand that there is absolutely nothing that can compare to the unconditional love of a fur kid, to please assist us in taking our babies with us. Please find it in your heart to help.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you cannot afford to donate, please take a moment to say a quick prayer, that we may be blessed and assisted.
