Save the Pibble House!

Kissa-Bull Blog Header

























It still makes me tear up to think of what Sandra and her family have been through in the past year. It's bad enough to lose your house and everything you own in a fire, but to lose 5 dogs at the same time just adds to the devastation. The amazing Two Pitties in the City wrote about it at the time in their blog post.

Though the family had home insurance, it only covered 3 months of living expenses, while it has taken 10 months to rebuild the house. Not only did they have to make the construction loan payments on a house they weren't able to live in, they also had to pay rent for a room for Sandra, her husband, their baby and their 2 remaining pitbulls. Their insurance also didn't cover contents, so they had no money to replace the things they lost, like basic clothing, beds, etc. When Sandra had to go on bed rest due to complications of her pregnancy they fell behind on payments on the construction loan, and now the bank has notified them that they will foreclose on the unfinished home. Here is the latest update from Kissa-Bull.



A link to the full Chip-In page to Save the Pibble House is here, or you can click the Chip-In button above. Please donate whatever you can afford, even $5 can make a difference. If 42 people can donate $5 each, that will raise enough money to save the house. The 5 dogs they lost in the fire are buried in the backyard, I can't imagine having to leave them under these circumstances. By helping them you'll be helping a family that has been rescuing dogs for years. Thanks for anything you can do!

  2. Done. Sorry it couldn't be more. I remember when this happened - it is so devastating that after everything they've been through, their ordeal still hasn't ended. We will hold them close to our hearts and hope the house can be saved. Thanks for sharing.
