Help get Peter back on all four feet - donate to his surgery fund and keep his tail waggin'!

Peter is a six year old mixed breed dog. Best known for his infallible adoration of all things human, canine, or feline, and his startling habit of "smiling" when he greets anyone on two legs, Peter is a gentle giant, loved by anyone who meets him.

In June of 2010, Peter was diagnosed with a partial tear in his right cruciate ligament. The surgery required to repair the ligament is estimated at $4000, not including post-operative pain medication and follow-up appointments. As the surgery can only be performed by a board certified surgeon, and due to the specialized nature of the procedure, it is quite expensive.

Unfortunately, I don't have $4000 to have Peter's surgery performed. The news of his condition came as a complete shock, and like most of the population of the world, I struggle with bills and debt like everyone else. I work two jobs in order to make ends meet, one of which is at a clinic, which helps with the pain meds he has been on since his diagnosis to keep him comfortable.

My New Years resolution is to get Peter his surgery, and my goal is to have him operated on and recovered in time for our annual trip to the cottage in August. Any support or donations would be greatly appreciated.

There may also be an upcoming Spagetti Dinner fundraiser within the next few months - I will keep everyone posted on upcoming events as well as Peter's progress.
