Bella has become a famous dog, leaving behind a legacy to help save the lives of so many animals. Help us help others by donating

Beautiful Momo, a black cat with one perfectly shaped white heart on her chest, came to Joe and Lori Spagnoli in the USA homeless one day, and of course they took her in. She changed their lives in the best of ways and brought and continues to bring them unlimited unconditional love every single day.


One day in 2005, Momo was at her vet for a routine physical and teeth cleaning. While there she also had a urinalysis done which involves the insertion of a needle into the bladder. Shortly after Momo returned home, Lori came to learn that their other cat, Fluffy, had a urinary tract infection, and after a culture, that it was MRSA. Fluffy was given targeted antibiotics and, lucky for him, he cleared the infection. Lori then learned on November 12, 2005, that Momo had the same infection. She wasn’t so lucky. Momo was treated with antibiotics for two years, and still she had MRSA. The vet said there were virtually no antibiotics left to try. In desperation, Lori went online and began researching MRSA. in this way, they discovered The Bella Moss Foundation.

In that instant, Momo’s fate changed. Where she was hopeless, now there was hope. Where they were alone, now they had the selfless help from Vikkie, the Reiki Healer. Because of the Foundation, Momo chose to participate in the Canadian MRSA study conducted by Dr Scott Weese and Meredith Faires, and their unselfish involvement and input have helped guide Momo’s family and many other pet owners to make better and more informed life-saving choices. The Foundation, also introducted them to Bella’s homeopathic veterinarian, Dr Richard Allport, whom the Spagnolis credit unconditionally as 2012 marks the celebration of Momo’s 19th birthday on this earth. Lori, Joe, and Momo have learned there is no ocean too wide believing that by that moment of divine internet intervention they went from nothing to everything they could possibly need to make a difference. For this and for so much more, they are eternally grateful to Bella who gave her life, so others may live.
