We need more people like Yolanda and services like this!
My dog Nemo was diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension a few weeks back. Unfortunately, on a Sunday, he had an episode and knowing I did not want him to be in pain anymore decided it was time to let him go to the Rainbow Bridge. This day it was snowing, and the streets were bad. It was Sunday so only the hospitals were open. I previously read about this service and Yolanda’s story the first-time nemo collapsed in my home thinking who do I call? That day I drove him to Medvet, crying the whole way, speeding and not caring if I got pulled over or ran a light. When I read Yolanda’s story it was so similar to mine it was scary. So, this time I decided to called Squad 51 to help me, and my baby get to the hospital so he would not suffer anymore. Yolanda answered the phone and I told her what was going on. She made it happen that an ambulance would be there within the hour, even though the roads were not great coming from Cleveland to Stow. She also let me and my friend ride in the ambulance because I explained I had no one to be there with me to help me through this hard time. I cannot believe the service Yolando gave to me and how she was very empathetic and worked with me. I would highly recommend this service. She came through in my time of need and unprecedented circumstances that occurred on a Sunday. I highly believe there needs to be more services like this closer to other counties, Summit being one. I am such an animal advocate that what Yolando created was the best thing she could have done for our fur babies. I am really grateful to her and her team which includes Nicole who gave my baby oxygen on the way and talked with me to help me know I was making the right decision. Nemo was 15.5 and lived a wonderful life. Thank you to Squad 51! I only can pray and hope they expand and help out others in their time of need. If you need anything I would be proud to help in any aspect of expanding the company. This was a blessing and cannot thank Yolanda enough for what she did.
