Marley's story

December 25, 2018 - Christmas Day

Julie takes her puppy Marley to DMV, Lachine. It was Christmas day and this was the only she knew would be open, it was evident to her that Marley was very ill and she needed to be seen immediately. Upon arrival at DMV Lachine Marley was rushed in for examination. Twenty minutes later a vet notifies Marley’s owner that the test results indicate she has Parvo. The vets main concern now turns towards the owners finances, explaining it would cost between $3,000 - $5,000 for treatment with no guarantee of her survival, the next option which was described as a  more humane option, have her euthanized so she wouldn’t continue suffering. Her owner could not imagine the thought of her suffering unnecessarily without guarantee of survival, nor could she afford that kind of money for treatment on Christmas day. Marley looked already so weak. With no other options she reluctantly signed the documents to let Marley go humanely. She chooses to stay and assist.
A few minutes later the veterinarian comes back with a last minute, final option, surrender Marley to a rescue they work with, the rescue will take the costs and adopt Marley out if she survived. Marley’s owner questioned why this was not presented before the option to euthanize her puppy, the veterinary’s response was that after looking at Marley again the idea just came to her. Now Julie even more confused on what she should do because she was first made to believe Marley had little chance of survival, but now how could she have Marley euthanized knowing they think she may live through this case of Parvo. Julie then asked if she would be able to adopt her back then? It didn’t make sense to her that the rescue would pay $5,000 in treatment and just get back a $400 adoption fee, how do they survive? Unfortunately they couldn’t tell Julie where Marley would end up. Julie basically was going to give up her rights to Marley up to the rescue, and it would be considered abandonment in their files. Julie was devastated. She did what she could do to keep Marley alive but she can’t shake the feeling that something isn’t right with this whole situation.

December 25, 2018 - Christmas Night (10:51 PM)
This story then takes an unexpected turn when SPCA Ouest posts a medical emergency case on Facebook about a puppy being left to die on Christmas. On this post you can read “Marley was surrendered and immediately brought to an emergency animal hospital because it was very clear that he was a very sick boy” summarized with “Marley needs a Christmas miracle. He did not deserve to be left to die. We reacted. We came to his help. Now we need you, our loyal supporters. Any donation will be greatly appreciated.” Their first goal was set between $2,900 - $3,500 for  Marley’s treatments. Over the week the goal has climbed all the way to a little over $14,000 for Marley’s treatments.
However, The truth is Marley arrived at the emergency animal hospital DMV in Lachine that afternoon and had never left, he was brought in by his original owner, Julie. The public began getting curious and  began asking questions on the SPCA Ouest facebook page, those messages got deleted one by one, leaving only the good comments, raising even more suspicion regarding the true costs of Marley’s treatments. 
Nearly two weeks later when Marley is apparently strong enough to be transferred out of ICU the end of an invoice is posted to prove the $14,000 invoice that people had been asking for. However the invoice had no details about Marley and was very vague, people then began asking for the rest of the invoice and those messages were either deleted or responded with defensive messages saying they were upset anyone would even doubt them.
Today we still ask for that proof and have yet to have an answer. $14,000 is unheard of for the treatment of Parvo, SPCA Ouest still refuses to show the entire invoice as of January 7, 2019.
