I am doing everything I can to come up with the money for Charlie's surgery, please do what you can to help.

This is Charlie, my 4 year old chihuahua and my best friend. This past Wednesday, he took a dive off the back of our couch and dislocated his tarsal bone, tearing the tendons in his lower back leg. Due to this, even with a splint and time, he will not be able to support his weight on that leg without further damage, and so our vet has told me he would need tarsal arthrodesis to join two bones in his leg to create support for him to walk again. The splint is currently on him to prevent further damage to his leg but can not be kept on him longer than 2 months.

Asking for help from others is something that really took me to swallow my pride to do, but at this point I am desperate. So far I have about $1,000 for him but will need another $2,500 at least. My family wants me to put him down because they believe it is an exorbitant amount of money that I shouldn’t be “wasting” on a dog. Charlie is still as energetic and happy as ever despite the pain he is in and how difficult it is to get around; he is doing his best for me. I want to do everything I can to avoid putting him to sleep.

I really believe that this is a doable amount, please pass this page along to others you know who can help. Thank you for taking your time to read this and please remember that any amount helps.
