For that I tip you my hat.
Well played sir/ma'am.
You have a really compassionate soul.

Have we really sunk so low that having money decides whether or not someone will live or die?

Yes, yes we have. But some people are, right now, actively trying to change this. But they are just a bunch of doped out hipster wanna be socialists.

I mean, i'm healthy, so screw everyone else right? Who cares about anyone but me and my money? Ohhh, you'll die without a kidney but can't afford it, boo hoo, get a job.

Good job muse7! If we had more people in this world with hearts like yours, this would be a better rock to live on. Thanks for your positive energy mate!

Good on you sir, but why do people get pets and not take out pet insurance when they can not afford bills if something goes wrong? Pet insurance (here anyway) is very cheap and covers all vet bills.

Well done for you sir, I am in not in a position to give much to anyone, but instead of supporting these nameless charities that are run like businesses with ceo claiming hunf=dreds of thousends a year, I often give a 3 or 4 pounds to someone who looks like they need a good meal or warm drink. If only i could do more.

Sadly many people have a tendency to turn the other way, i am so glad that you got something out of it also. It is almost as if we are scared to help people anymore.

Bless your heart for helping that family out.

My vet would never turn a man like that away. His office is very informal and he does not have staff that shields him from the patients financial concerns. I have seen him on several occasions do things for people at no charge. He said it's just good karma to help people. In return, he has a lot of people who LOVE him. His reputation is spreading throughout several towns and people travel many miles to have their pets cared for by him.

That vet got into the "business" for the money. He probably has a slick looking office and charges office visits. This is disgusting. I can understand people wanting to make a decent living but they should not do so at the expense of the less fortunate.

My vet has a very humble office and reasonable charges and yet still manages to make very good money.

Unfortunately unless the banking cartels who rule the modern world are toppled the sad truth will remain the same, money is the all important item human need to live.

I applaud the OP for the actions undertaken! Life is infinitely more valuable than any amount of money ever will be. Money can be printed, life needs to be created and nurtured.

I've had a jar of change in my bedroom closet for years. I have never seen it do any evil of any kind. I wish it would grow faster but thats something for another day.
What I have seen is people who possess money do evil things with their money but money itself, no . I also know people who have money and they are kind and generous and caring people so money does not corrupt. It is the hands that hold the money that determine whether it is used for ill or good.
Thinking of money as evil will surly keep it from finding you. Just sayin'

More people need to be made aware of this. We did not know about pet insurance and paid out the nose for vet care. Once we came home from the vets after only one hour, $450.00 poorer and our dog was dead.

fantastic muse! If more people in this world were like you it would be such a better place.
I'm kind of new to posting, I saw the flag button but haven't figured out how to star yet.
But I will.
Kudos !
and Kharma will repay you.
what a good heart !

I wish I was in the position to be able to do things like that, I would if I could.

A very nice, selfless act that could only have been improved by utilising the services of a different Vet.

The best way to deal with heartless greed is to not feed it.

A short note or phone call to your local paper, relating this story could be an effective way to draw some attention to this lack of community mindedness, as well as maybe refer people to a Vet more concerned with the welfare of suffering animals/pets, than their next Bahama's holiday.

A star for your act of kindness.

Wow! I just read the opening post and want to say "Thank You" your act of love just made my day. I know being able to make a difference in someone's life as you did is going to be something they will never forget. The world is a better place with you in it!

People like you are what makes me proud to be human. Too many times, all people care about are their own greedy agendas, never caring about their fellow man. A couple of summers ago, my 76 year old mother was making a trip to southern Illinois to visit her brother. Along the way, her car started making funny sounds and she managed to get off of the highway and into a little town. Once there, she went into a small cafe and asked a group of elderly gentlemen sitting at a table if there was a service station nearby. They directed her to a station, but when she got there, after looking at the car, she was told that the repairs were going to cost something like $200. Well, she didnt have even close to that amount and didn't know what she was going to do. She decided to go back to the cafe to have a cup of coffee while she tried to figure out what to do. Once there, the gentlemen at the table asked her what was going on and she explained the situation. My mom went into the restroom and when she returned, one the fellows came up to her and told her that they had taken up a collection for her, and proceeded to hand her $200. My mom coulldn't believe it. She said she had tears in her eyes as she told them how greatful she was and then when she asked them for their addresses so that she could repay them their money, they told her to forget it and just take the money. People like you and those gentlemen are what makes this a wonderful world to live in. Kudos to you!

This is so far, the best story I have read on ATS. Thank you for inspiring me to do the same when I next see someone in need of some help.

Its not like that everywhere. When my scrappy( Long haired Chuahua) broke his little right elbow i guess you could say I only had $110 and they took it and on my word they would be paid back before the end of next month, the bill was $332, and they even included the $110 to break down the final amount. And I get free check ups every 2 months from the doctor.If you show them you are worth it they will work with you.But that could just be a fluke of a thing. But thought I would share my experience

That is really amazing of you. I wish more people would follow suit if they could.
And you made some great points. I am sitting here with a stiff and painful jaw needing my wisdom tooth removed, but my insurance doesn't cover tooth extraction. It's a sad world we live in.

Yes all Humans have the capability to be a Hitler or a Jesus Christ? It is which personality we focus on that brings out what we are. Essentially I believe we are all good, loving sentient beings that wont whats best for each other.
Fantastic inspiring OP S+F. Keep up the good work... :-)

'What you do to the least of these, you do to me...' or something like that. I'm not religious, but I know from the bottom of my heart that this is true. It is actions like yours that will hasten the coming of the new era. Yeah, there will be people who smugly deny that anything makes a difference. But we know better. There is a cumulative effect and the momentum is gaining steam.
I don't know you, but I love you for what you did there....

I am so grateful to be living on this beautiful Earth with a magnificent compassionate human such as you.

When as a child, I too was the recipient of a compassionate gift from a stranger, Beyond the gift, there is no words to express what that stranger gave me. I think of that compassionate person often and their gift to me has carried me with hope even to this day. I did not know their name, but I remember their heart.
