Meet the Health Heroes: Cate Dorr and Ford

What is your No. 1 piece of health-related advice or encouragement?

Cate: Get a pet. There have been studies that found that people who own pets (especially dogs) tend to be healthier. In fact, one study showed that people who have had a heart attack are significantly less likely to have a second if they own a pet.

There’s just something they do for you, for your health, both physically and emotionally. They are completely passionate, nonjudgmental creatures who love you unconditionally. They don’t care if you can’t run marathon, walk slow, use a wheelchair, or have a limp; they are just thrilled that you’re taking them for a walk. They don’t understand that you’re stress at work. They just know you’re home now and are thrilled to see you. There is something so comforting and therapeutic about that kind of love.

For some owners, their furry companion is more than just a companion. Trigger found his way into a loving family’s heart three years ago after being adopted from a local rescue organization. Not only is this handsome boy part of the family, but he also serves as a certified Emotional Support Animal (E.S.A) to aid his owner Heather, a former Navy veteran who says she would be lost without Trigger.

One day, Trigger’s owner noticed some blood along with some unexplained vomiting. As any responsible pet owner would do, Heather rushed him to the veterinarian. Unfortunately, the results were not as she’d hoped. The vet told Heather that she believed Trigger had a multitude of conditions that needed to be addressed right away. Heather and her family were faced with a difficult decision of what to do next, as the family was not able to afford the necessary medical treatment for Trigger.

Luckily, Pet Specialists of Monterey Bay graciously sponsored Trigger to receive assistance from Max’s Helping Paws Foundation (MHPF). Trigger’s mom was panicked.  Trigger needed help immediately, and wasn’t sure how they would be able to afford the ultrasound 
Thankfully for Trigger’s family, MHPF was able to step in to assist with the often overwhelming burden of surgical costs and recovery.Heather says, “We cannot express how much we appreciate all those that chipped and came together to help him/us. I am so grateful for all the help we received. There was a point where I really felt we may have to say goodbye to Trigger. When I count my blessings at night Max’s is at the top of the list.” Today, Trigger is continuing a smooth and steady recovery. His GI symptoms have almost completely resolved and his skin has improved in just the last few days of medications. Trigger is also back to climbing up on his owners bed to snuggle with his best friend, the family’s 8 month old son Wesley. He’s even getting back into the habit of begging for a ride in the car when he hears anyone grab the car keys! A big hug from and a sloppy kiss from Trigger to all who were involved in his care!”

Vaquita is a Chihuahua who was adopted 7 years ago from an elderly neighbor. It was the black patches on her fur that made her family settle on naming her “vaquita,” which means “little cow” in Spanish. As an “only child” as described by her human mom, Julia, Vaquita enjoys playing with kids, but she also likes her own space. Julia went on to say, “Vaquita likes to chase our son around the house, and enjoys going for long walks to the bike trail.” Every day, Vaquita’s family would take her on a walk around the Seaside neighborhood where they reside. Just before Vaquita’s daily neighborhood stroll, right before the family was getting ready to leave on a short trip -out of nowhere- a large, unleashed dog attacked Vaquita without notice or provocation. This dog picked Vaquita up by her back and shook her profusely, until her dad was able to get the dog to drop Vaquita from his mouth. Vaquita laid there- still, in shock and in horrific pain, having sustained numerous deep bite wounds that damaged both her neck and back, as well as several broken ribs.

I held her aloft- one hand supporting her front legs and the other holding her tiny haunches.  She turned and looked at me with complete trust.  I was smitten.  This little black and white kitten that I named Sashay had my heart from that moment. She and her brother, another tuxedo, were in a little room at the SPCA set aside for meeting prospective pets. But there had been no doubt that these little cats were going home with me. I was excited about having these fur people as family members.  Raised in a dog-only home and then living places where pets weren’t allowed had postponed this day for a long time.  Now my husband Mark and I could have “children” to love and spoil. We named the boy Saki after my favorite short story writer and Sashay Sashay because Mark thought that was a good cat name. Sashay fit her name perfectly.  She took over the house immediately, putting her brother and us in our appropriate places.  Brother was much bigger but she was the quick and fearless. She claimed my lap and if Saki tried to sneak up, she bit his butt and he got the idea.  How could one cat have so many endearing habits and quirks? 
For years I kept my bedroom door closed so I could have one area dander-free.  I was afraid my minor cat allergies would worsen if I didn’t.  Sashay put up with that until one day when she didn’t.  She scratched and meowed and butted her head against the door.
Who cared about allergies?

She jumped on the bed and surveyed her new kingdom.  She had a dozen darling ways to snuggle.  She would pick which ones she would use for that night.  I was happy regardless. I could always, always count on her love and attention and she could count on mine.
Then she got sick- really sick.  We couldn’t afford to begin to try the treatments that could help her.
Then a miracle happened and Dr. Marcus, our vet, told me about Dyana Klein and Dr. Fradkin.  They had established an foundation to help people and kitties like us.  Max’s Helping Paws made it possible for Sashay to receive extensive and comprehensive treatment.  I had her for five more weeks because of the indescribable generosity of Dr. Marcus and Max’s Helping Paws.  Most of my tears are sad now excep

"Thank you so much to Max’s Helping Paws and the doctors/staff at Pet Specialists for helping to save Kaisah’s broken leg. One week before I was scheduled to have spinal fusion surgery, Kaisah broke her leg and required a very expensive repair. I was unable to afford the cost as I was not working at the time due to my injury. Max’s Helping Paws made it possible for Kaisah to receive the care she needed. Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts!
