Our family is facing 2 large bills for operations on our mini dachshund. Roxy needs to be happy again, can you please help her?

I adopted Roxy, a miniature dachshund, from a friend whose family did not have enough love for her after the (owner) young child left home. I took the 10 lb dog without hesitation, I knew we could love her and give her love! First vet visit revealed Lyme's & Anaplasmosis (both tick borne diseases), as well as a couple of bad teeth that need to come out (her breath smells like bad clams) so she can happily eat again. Visit = $265, Proprosed surgery = $750-950 -just to clean and pull one tooth. Second visit revealed 3 large bladder stones that need to come out. Sick visit= $380, proposed surgery = $1,000 . I loved the vet, I have no complaints about him, except his prices! I called my local Humane Society an they will charge $200 for the teeth, and about $800 for the stones removal. I am a divorced Mom of a 12yo boy and a 16yo girl.I deliver pizzas and since summer past, our sales have gone down. We have started saving and have about $160.  I cannot support my children as it is, and now with Roxy's illness.....I just cannot make it happen. Roxy is so sweet! She is 6 yrs old and weighs 10 lbs and is dapple colored. Some say her markings are ugly, but she is just beautiful,,,INSIDE and OUTSIDE! Everyone who sees her HAS to smile! Everyone loves her. I just want her to be healthy again and live a very happy and long life with us and all of our love! I plan on enrolling her with an animal group that brings pets to nursing homes, hospitals, etc.....she can really brighten everyone's day! (That will be my "paying forward" any monies collected here.) Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!!!
