HOW WE HELP PEOPLE AND ANIMALS

“Jill does an extraordinary job; she and her foundation help the ‘powerless’ victims of the terrible MRSA bug and empowers them with her boundless energy, understanding, sympathy and knowledge.  To think that this amazing organization was borne from sorrow and the awful, unnecessary tragedy of the loss of the beautiful Bella is nothing short of a miracle.  Others might have just cried and ‘licked their wounds’ but not Jill.  How many people knew that animals could contract MRSA?  I certainly didn’t.  Jill has shown a powerful spotlight on this and brought it to the public awareness; the foundation helps so many in so many countless ways: victim support, owner support and morale, liaising with professionals in order to bring about more effective ‘battle strategies’ against the bug.  She is a true inspiration. “

I really thought we’d lose Freya our dog but through Jill’s positive attitude and kindness she helped pull me through a nightmare.  Jill is a god send to pet owners with infected pets, because if you need information on MRSA BMF is a wonderful resource and Jill spends so much time helping to save lives.

Dusty

My story is how the Bella Moss foundation really touched my life and saved my best friends life. I had come to the end of the road with my dog dusty. She has had a hole in the side of her leg for two years that has never stopped draining. I live in the Dominic Republic and vets here wanted to euthanize Dusty.  I couldn’t give up, the love I have for Dusty my dog is worth everything to me even though I sacrificed much emotionally. I had taken her to so many doctors for help including fifteen surgeries along the way. When I came across the Bella Moss website it truly caught my eye because I had found someone that expressed the same love and determination for her animal as me. I read Jill’s story and contacted Jill.  Jill and my journey to saving Dust’s life had begun. I was immediately comforted in knowing that there was still hope out there for Dusty. Jill truly is a person that cares and knows what us animal lovers go through. She immediately put me in contact with vets from different parts of the world and helped me every step of the way. These vets were incredible and pointed me in the right direction for Dusty. After two years of an ongoing emotional rollercoaster I had found my stop. I was directed by expert vets which way to go and I took her to a  BMF vet who saved her life.

Thank you Jill so much for all of your time and hard work. I know I speak for all the ones you have helped out there. You will never know how much you mean to Dusty and I.

Sincerely, Jaclyn and Dusty Dominic Republic
