Where can we get help paying for our puppies medical bills.?1Karissa2012-11-05 01:56:03
post this question again as there was no solid leads : My boyfriend and I adopted our puppy 3 months old , Elizabeth , June 7, 2008 . We were told the following Wednesday that one of the puppies in the litter had parvo and that she should be tested. She tested positive . Although he recovered, the cost of treatment over $ 1300 and while putting a financial strain on us, that was not the end : After recovering from parvo , she came down with pneumonia and that treatment has cost us an additional $ 450 + . We carried out some loans , but the problem is that my boyfriend and I are students and only works part time to pay other bills (car , medical bills , school , etc . ) If we do not help, we will be behind other bills . We have searched the organizations that can help, but most are for future treatments . Does anyone know of an organization or maybe even people who can help us ? We love our puppy and I tried to do the best for her ...
I can't afford to keep paying my parents' bills. How do I say no?3Beverly2012-09-26 06:11:03
I am a 19 year old college living 3,000 miles away from my family . I pay for college myself with a combination of scholarships and student loans, and I have a part time job that pays my bills . I can pay for everything myself , food , rent , transportation (I have a car , ride the bus ) , medications , etc. My parents did not support me financially in any way MedlinePlus . MedlinePlus Three years ago , the company my father worked for went bankrupt. Because of the economy , has been unable to find a job. There is no chance that you'll find a job that pays what his old job paid , but shall have no regular work , even for a few years until the economy improves. The mother company is on the verge of bankruptcy and had their pay cut in half. They lost their home to foreclosure and are now living in a small rental. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Because of these problems , my parents have asked me to start sending parts of my paycheck to them. I've been giving enough to help pay the smaller bills , such as heat or water , but can not afford to give more. Recently, my work hours have been reduced ( economy ) , and I 'm not making extra money as much as I used to. I told them I would be unable to continue to help them, but he got angry and told me it's my duty as a daughter to help my parents in a time of need . Say it with everything you have given me , I give back to them . I want to help , but I 'm running out of money . What should I do ?

MedlinePlus MedlinePlus What if I just stop paying your bills right now, while trying to locate a lawyer? And they will stop because the loan amounts are so high? Do you lose your home or your car?

A question about paying bills online?0jihb2012-08-23 23:29:03
I have spent a long auto loan bill for Capital One for $ 566.48 . When I was on the phone with them , Mrs. unpleasant ( though I was being polite and try to solve the problem ) told me I had to pay immediately through Western Union or Money Gram . I got off the phone with her and I went to the website Money gram and said I had to choose a place for the creditor to collect the money there and then I would have to call back to give them the reference number . Well I do not want to have to call those nasty people return again and again. If I go to my online account and make a payment through my checking account , how long usually take for them to receive the money . I do not want to repossess my car , so I'm hoping that pass for today. Thanks for any help .
Need Help with saving money and paying bills! Can Someone Help me????0Finch2012-09-14 00:45:05
I have 20 years of age and at least 8,000 in medical debt. I had Medicaid, but I give off when he turns 18. I think their was a way to keep medicaid to show proof that I was in school and elsewhere but I was too lazy to do it. I've been in college for 3 years and have since accumulated 8,000 hospital bill go to the emergency room. A bill for 3500 was for an ambulance to come and get me in the hospital for respiratory problems. My thing is I can do with this debt and how do I get rid of it. Do not tell me anything about how to get health insurance because they can afford it nor can my mom. Do not know my father and campus life. My mom has 5 other children to take care of that is receiving Medicaid, so I will not put pressure on it to pay my medical bills or get insurance for me. Trying to work and go to school, but it did not work because I was failing my classes. Classes or too expensive, so I will not waste my precious time ot wage job at some stupid mimunal school failure. I'm not a person who can do too many things at once. My question is how I can do something about the debt, and get a job. MedlinePlus I'm trying to get into medical school and was working class and not an option unless you leave school and get a job, then it might work. If I so much that could well leave my classes because it takes all my time and I fell. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus my question is what I can do about it, is I can as I am a college student who has no insurance? with all this medical debt. I have four credit cards and all are important over 1000 credit limits. paid and save. I can check my credit report and is perfect except medical bills. I have no lates repo or anything in my report. My son is shown but not taken into account until the end of school in eight years. I have a car loan on my credit report that my aunt is worth to drive and has always been paid on time, in fact, I have only one more year for that. So in a year I'll have a car loan paid in my report and more than 6,000 in credit that is avaible and paid in full on time with payments. I feel bad because I could not use my card to pay the debt, but do not want to use credit to pay the debt that will soon be too much debt. I think it's like most Americans are in debt up to your knee and I do not wanna be one of those people. It's bad enough when I finish school I will have atleast 150,000 in student loan debt, but which can be paid over a period of years after becoming a doctor in 8 years
