This Disabled Man Didn’t Have The Money To Pay For His Pet’s Treatment.
So I work at a pet store, my family owns it. We do boarding, daycare, training, grooming and retail.
I had a regular come in a few months back he wasn’t doing to well financial since becoming disabled. He brought in his dog for grooming and I noticed he had large amount of fleas, I called and informed him. I let him know that I would give his other dog a flea bath for cheap so he could take care of it. Once he got there he tried to pay with a care credit card that the state had given him. Unfortunately, we don’t take that card. So he gave me his card information so I could charge him when he got paid. I sent with him with some flea and tick topical we sell over the counter.
Well the day came for me to run his card, he called me to remind me. I thanked him, got off the phone and didn’t charge him.
Today he called realizing he hadn’t been charged, I told him I didn’t plan on charging him and was happy to be able to help. He couldn’t talk for a bit, trying to compose himself. I got off the phone knowing I had made someone’s day better.
I know how hard it can be living on disability, my mom is on it. Sometimes even the littlest of things can help.
