Scamp, a 13 year old, large black dog was adopted from a shelter as a young pup by his person, Charlee, now a retired telephone communicator. Over his lifetime, Scamp was a true life saver – several times, in fact! He was that kind of dog. A first responder, of sorts.
Scamp helped Charlee when she fell. One year, Charlee fell decorating her Christmas tree. She had a concussion and the first thing she knew when she woke up was that Scamp was licking her. Another time, Charlee fell on some ice and broke her arm. Scamp pulled her to a safe place so she could use him to get back on her feet without falling again.
Whenever their home was in danger, Scamp protected all of the pets (even the iguana) and Charlee. Scamp scared an intruder who invaded their home. If there was a gas leak, carbon monoxide fumes, or a hot wire in the wall, Scamp would insist that they go outside so frequently, that she knew they had a problem in their home even before the alarms finally went off.
Charlee had to move several times in a short period of time. After every move, Scamp helped Charlee make new friends and helped her adjust to their new home.
Scamp was even in tune with Charlee’s medical health! Whenever Charlee’s blood pressure would rise or her blood sugar was too low, Scamp would let Charlee know she needed to take care of herself (and not just him).
They loved taking walks together, and as he got older, Charlee made sure Scamp had pain medication to manage his chronic pain and see his veterinarian every 6 months. She needed to make sure she helped Scamp, the dog that saved her life so many times. He deserved to live a long, healthy life, even after she started living on a fixed income. She even moved so that she could afford to take care of him.
That’s when tragedy struck, and generous people like you helped.
Scamp was enjoying a walk in the park when all of a sudden, another dog attacked him! Charlee knew that he needed veterinary care right away. Because her regular veterinarian wasn’t available after hours, they went to see Dr. Brown at Tyler Animal Clinic. Scamp needed lots of stitches, and he was in a lot of pain. Thanks to Dr. Brown, he got that care. It was very expensive for Charlee who needed extra help affording any follow up care with his usual veterinarian, Dr. Earle Rogoff at Orange Village Animal Hospital.
Because of generous people like you, Scamp was able to get the excellent care he needed. Charlee got the Veterinary Payment Vouchers she needed from One Health Organization to afford the veterinary care that Scamp required when he was hurt and got professional help.
We are pleased to say that Scamp lived a long and happy life with Charlee. He was able to live another 2 years before he was euthanized for humane reasons at the ripe old age of 15.
If you want to help make sure that other dogs like Scamp can get the veterinary care they need, when they need it, please consider becoming a monthly, quarterly, or annual donor today.
Irene was a nurse until she broke her ankle just months before her retirement. Luckily, she was still allowed to keep her pension. That was many years ago and her fixed income hasn't kept up with her expenses now that she's in poor health.
Her beloved dog Puff Daddy is no longer with her (he had to be euthanized because he was in poor health and in pain), so to keep her quality of life high, she adopted Gypsy Rose, another Pekingese dog she got from a rescue.
Thanks to caring people like you, Irene can live a healthy and happy life with Gypsy Rose. And Gypsy Rose is healthier than she's ever been!

Johnnie and her cat Missy are inseparable. Johnnie rescued Missy from a shelter so that she has a forever home, they both live in a residential facility for low-income seniors in a small apartment, and their household is a One Health Family Member receiving donor-paid benefits to help afford veterinary care for Missy. Missy entertains Johnnie, prevents loneliness, and provides a source of unconditional love. Johnnie is grateful for the donor-paid vouchers she was able to receive from the generosity of people like you, donors of One Health Organization.
New One Health Family Member Tiffany cannot wait to get help for her beloved therapy dog-in-training; a veterinarian needs to examine his eyes and lumps on his belly. This is the story she wanted to share with our donors.
"Thank you so much for your help. Diesel helps me in so many ways. I have Aspergers Syndrome, depression, anxiety and agoraphobia. Diesel is in training to be my service dog. He will help me be able to be more independent and I hope someday I can even get a job where they will accommodate Diesel and myself. He has already learned "DPT" (deep pressure therapy) when I am on sensory overload or my anxiety is really bad he can lay on me which will help me relax. He is also learning to bring me my medications when I am having a meltdown."
One Health Family Member Vanessa left us the following message to share with our donors.
"I wanted to give you a quick update on my sweet Ellis. Dr. Brian was happy to see his ears were much better. He loaded up the ears with medication and we have a prescription. We go back in 3 weeks. I am hopeful that Ellis will be infection free then. I am so grateful to OneHealth Organization. Ellis' quality of life is so improved. He is playful again! I am so grateful. Thank you."
When Dr. Rogoff of Orange Village Animal Hospital learned of Lil' Girl's broken leg, he offered to help fix her leg for a reduced rate. This would not have been possible without the new Project Noah Fund, developed by Dr. Brian Forsgren of Gateway Animal Clinic. This is what Pauline had to say to donors who were able to help with this unexpected and expensive surgery:
“I really appreciate the help that everyone at One Health Organization provided to us. Everyone was so nice and treated Lil’Girl with great care. When I picked her up I could tell that she felt safe and comfortable. We are so grateful for all the help.”
Scamp was a hero to his person Charlee. His veterinarian saved Scamps life. A #OneHealthHero like you helped save Scamp through a donation to One Health Organization so Charlee could afford those veterinary fees.Read More
