with Vet Bills
The inclusion of a service,
organization or program on this page is NOT an endorsement or
recommendation. We are not able to guarantee the quality of
services. We strongly suggest that you check them out yourself
before using a specific service.
If your dog is having ANY medical or behavior problems that
might be related to health, you should take your dog to your
Veterinarian. Behavior problems that might be caused by health
issues are things like newly developed aggression, some anxiety
issues, a dog wandering as if in a trance & so many more.

Crowdfunding & Other Fund Raising Sites
- Be aware that Crowdfunding sites will usually
charge a fee for processing payments (usually a small flat %),
some charge for listing on their site, but
many allow listing for free. Some sites are for Non-Profits or
Business Ventures only, but here are a few that let you reach out
for almost any kind of funding.
Social Media (facebook, google+,
Twitter, Ello etc....)
Start a facebook campaign &
SHARE, SHARE, SHARE. Make sure you set it up as "public" so that
all of your fb friends & family can share it freely.
One of the biggest ways to help make sure this
works is to publish the name/phone number of the vet treating your
Akita - Most people prefer to give the funds straight to the vet.
Set up a PayPal or Google Checkout account to
accept funds, just be aware that there is a nominal payment
processing fee for both of these.
