Help my people help me. I was a stray found with a broken leg and I am costing my saviors A LOT of money!!! Every dollar helps.

Let's see how "MIGHTY" the dollar really is. If each person who views this page donates $1 it will add up quickly. Please just $1 to help.

Hi my name is Casanova and I really need your help.
I was found starving and with a shattered leg behind some bushes where I had crawled to die after being hit by a car several days earlier. I had one surgery that was unsuccessful and now after 6 weeks I needed another surgery. The first one actually did more harm then good. My saviors that found me took me to a specialist for the second surgery to ensure that I was cared for properly. The rescue that helped cover the costs of the first surgery are unable to help financially due to they are still paying the costs for the poorly done surgery. The vet has provided a detailed letter confirming that the first surgery was poorly done and that the leg was not stabilized properly to ensure healing. So hopefully the rescue that took on the cost of the first surgery will be able to get reimbursed. The cost of my second surgery with a specialist at ASG Animal Specialty is about $4000.00. This doesn’t include therapy 3 times a week for the next month and follow up radiology appointments at 4, 8 and 12 week. Not to mention the gas to go to LA and back 3 times a week. The people that found me are seeking donations to cover some of the cost because they are beyond tapped out, so if anyone can donate any amount please contact them.

We are taking on all expenses for Casanova’s recovery with no assistance from the first rescue as they have many other dogs that they help and try to find homes for. We contacted several pet assistance programs and so far none have been able to help due to the overwhelming need and the limited funds. If you know anyone we should contact or can donate any amount please e-mail us the information. Thank you

Donations can also be sent directly to either Mari or me (just email us) as we are at a point now where all expenses have been covered by donations from friends and many other generous angels, except for the initial $2300 deposit put on my credit card, that we are trying to raise to pay off the card. I know the amount listed is $2400 - that is due to that fact that the website keeps 7% of the donations.

Please note that Casanova has been relinquished to a wonderful Italian Greyhound rescue as we (my Aunt and I) can no longer afford to provide the therapy he needs to make a full recovery. As I still have a couple thousand dollars worth of debt on my cc and could still use donations to help cover that, this page will remain active until we have raised enough to cover the costs we have incurred. So help is still needed. The rescue will find him a wonderful loving home, though he'll never be loved like I love him.
