Bailey's family is uniting to raise money to help her receive a much needed surgery. Please show your support!

On January 5th we came home to our 13 week old puppy Bailey limping in pain, only using 3 legs. We have two older dogs we rescued a few years ago at home she was playing with and must have gotten hurt. At first we figured she probably pulled a muscle, so we kept her mostly in a kennel for two days to rest it, but she was still in pain and was favoring it even more. After calling a few vets for consult, we decided to bring her to Mass-RI Veterinary ER in Swansea, Ma for an evaluation and x-rays. It was determined that Bailey has a lateral epi condyal fracture, which requires surgery to repair. Without surgery, her leg will not heal correctly and she will not regain the proper use of her leg. The cost of the surgery is between $2,500 and $3,000. We were completely taken back by all of this, and still are. We have four daughters at home as well as the three dogs, so needless to is tight. We've paid the $300 for the initial visit, and have come up with $500 towards the surgery, but we still have a long way to go. We have applied for care credit but were denied. Contacted all programs available for assistance or low cost services, but havent had any luck. We are doing everything we can for her, but seeing her struggle and in pain is really taking a toll on our family and on Bailey. We just dont know what else to do...
