Homeless since MAY 2014 w'7 rescue dogs NEEDS RV for A HOME!
For: Ena Silva & pups Rosie, Mama, Lucy, Tommy, William, Dottie and Penny.
HOMELESS IN NEWPORT, OREGON
PLEASE HELP US, HAVE A ROOF SO WE CAN BE WARM IN THESE COLD TEMPERATURES AND FOUL WEATHER.
Last week we were in a 60 mph wind storm with rain. Our tent poles broke and the cover was torn.
I have come to the conclusion, I am NOT going to be ABLE to rent a place with seven dogs.
Especially with 3 pitties because the breed is so discriminated.
Have looked since May 2014. I have looked from Stockton, CA to Lincoln City, Oregon.
Have been paying for motel since May 2014, but now the money has run out.
We live from my disability. I spend on nothing completely necessary, the basics.
My food is mainly bought at the dollar store. The pups do get decent food, Call of the Wild, Salmon.
Even though I have not wanted to, I am starting this fundraiser because the weather has changed and we need a place to be safe and warm. The only option is to buy an RV.
Have no other choice to survive the winter in Oregon.
Have to get one that I can handle, low miles, in great condition and with everything I will need to survive being in a campground or off grid. Must last me years. I want it to be no more than 15 years old. That means, a 2000 model or newer
Must have room for all the seven dogs be able to lay down, otherwise be comfortable
Just don't want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with extra expenses. Plus have to place to take the dogs while repairs are done.
I am on my own, don't have anybody to call to assist me in an emergency.
My car, "02 Saturn Vue can only pull 2500 lbs of dry weight
Because of that I can't get a most trailers. Only one is a tiny an A frame Chalet.
Too small for my 100 lb German shepherd, a catahoula, 3 pitties, a basenji mix, and a dalmatian mix.
The only option is a class C motor home, that can pull my car.
A USED one with low miles, in good condition, 24 ft long sells from about $15,000
This is if sold by owner. If from a dealer it would be twice as much.
This might sound like many demands, but believe me older models have water damage, appliances don't work, tires have been sitting too long and are hard to deal.
I am terrified that we will get stuck. That the RV brakes down.
The RV can go to a shop where it could cost thousands of dollars to fix maybe an engine, or a transmission.
My worse fear is where do my dogs and me go in the mean time. If I possibly find a motel; how do I pay for it.
Boarding the dogs, that is a huge expense.
Hope you understand and helps us be safe and warm.
I just want to keep my dogs safe forever. We are a family.

GRATEFUL!!!!! That's how I feel when I read your comments. In these difficult times, I am humble, you have taken the time to let us know you care. The doggies don't read but they can feel when mom is relaxed.
The donations are needed and so are your prayers.
I can't say it enough; God bless you for caring about 7 dogs, whose life started under sad circumstances. I am so lucky to have guided and chosen to be their Mom.
Hugs to each one of you

Hello friends, The weather has dramatically become more winter. There has been a series of storms. Everyday has been raining hard . The nights are so chilly.. Because the high amount of humidity, all our things feel wet.
Regarding the amazing offer for us to get a free RV, I haven't any concrete info. So I ask you to please keep sharing the fundraiser until I let you know. The reality is we don't know if this legit. No disrespect to Lisa Lewis. Her friend is the one making the offer.. Plus the weather isn't going to get better. Everyone who lives here, tells me to expect the storms to be increasing more strong and longer.
Living in a wet ground is extremely hard on the dogs and me. Every night listening to the loud sound of rain makes us all have difficulty sleeping.
Please pray for us and to have this ordeal come to an end.
God bless you
Ena and the pups

First of all I want to apologize for not answering your comments on a timely manner.
Unfortunately there is no Wi-Fi in the campgrounds.
Also my dinosaur cell phone won't let me open big sites, like this one.
If you want to get in touch with me, right away. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will reply you the same day.
Having said all that; I want you to know the doggies are all healthy and happy.
Nothing is too good for them!
Our tent is great. We have plenty of room, even my 80 lbs shepherd can stretch and down with the others having just as much room.
I in the other hand, well you know how it is. The tent is theirs :) I am just allowed to have a little room to sleep. I am sure you can all relate ... right!
They each has their own blanket, there are 2 large sleeping bags for them, plus body pillows, more blankets and more pillows. They love their tent. Its like their den.
You should see them rolling in their backs or chewing bones.
I walk them 3 times a day. We have water and can cook in the campground.
They get breakfast, a snack, dinner and snack before bed.
No they are not overweight or underweight.
Even though they are happy. We still need a permanent solution to our housing dilemma.
I have grandkids and adult kids in Northern California.
So the only places would live in are Oregon or Nor Cal.
PLEASE KEEP SHARING! Blessings Ena and the pups
