According to USA Today, rising veterinary costs and a still faltering economy have resulted in an increase in “economic euthanasias.” Pet owners are putting their fuzzy family members “to sleep” because they are unable to pay for necessary treatments.
Our own pet medical emergency began August 18, 2014.
Originally, our goal was to write a book to pay the emergency veterinary costs of our beloved pet, Kahn the Cat, who suffered acute heart failure without warning. We were able to scrape and borrow enough money to pay the initial bills, but, because of the costs, we seriously considered euthanasia.
We are not the only people that have faced this problem.
Everyday, thousands of pet owners must make tough decisions because they can’t afford the cost of unexpected pet medical emergencies. We’ve been there, so how can we help others in the same situation?
For us the answer was to turn Yes We Kahn into a mission by providing resources to pet owners who find themselves in unable to pay for needed medical treatment for their pet.
Buy our book. Write a review. Donate to the cause. Share our story and our mission.
With your help, our book and website will help pet owners find the resources needed to help save the lives of their four-footed family members.
Once the Yes We Kahn book makes enough to cover Kahn’s medical expenses, any additional proceeds will go to help pet owners with their pet medical expenses. We want the book to keep on giving.
