Hi i'm Pamela Cruz retired high school teacher, Yurt (The dog) used to live with a homeless man , 57-year-old Lucas Hardy, in his car in my neighborhood.I would always take my morning and afternoon walks with my dog and bring them food because he was always there and i felt really bad for them i would always say hi to him and pet the dog ,it seemed like my dog got along with his dog so one day i decide to ask would you like to come to my house and shower and bath your dog ,he got so excited you can only imagine being in a car for weeks with out bathing and bored all the time in the car.My neighbors would also take him food as well and give him blankets and other items.So asked him to come with me and his best friend Yurt to my house gave him soap and a tooth brush and tooth paste with a shaving razor,so while he was showering i was bathing his dog wow never had ive seen so much dirt and hair knots on a dog poor thing needed it .Yurt got so excited and started running up and down playing with my dog so i let him play and have fun in my back yard.In the mean time i was making a quick dinner for lucas while he showered o did he look like a brand new person when he came out. He was eating and we were talking and he asked me if i can adopt his dog because he can no longer care for him,I said sure i can take care of him for you,I staid with the dog he was very happy. But a week ago he knocked on my door and asked me to take him to the hospital so i did and i waited while they did all kinds of test and came out with lung cancer i was like omg what do i do know he has no family no money ,how is he going to pay for his treatments .I decided to take home with me a gave him a empty room i had in there rear of my house. I have a good heart i could not see him go thru this so i decided to pay for a nursing home were he can get the proper care. Thank god my community came together and help me out to pay for the nursing home.But we are till trying to find a way to raise money for his medical treatment.Please if anyone can make a donation to help lucas please its vary appreciated i will personally pay the medical bills with the funds raised for him.Anything helps thanks everyone.
