We are seeking assistance re-cooping the cost of Dexter's surgery. We used our mortgage money to pay and now we may lose our home. Thanks!

Dexter was found by my daughter in the middle of a very busy highway near my home. She stopped in the middle of the road to jump out and get him. She was on her way to work but returned to my house to drop him off. I knew he had been injured but did not know the full extent of his injuries. I just kept him warm and let him rest for a day or so. I realized that his injuries must be worse than they looked so I took him to my vet even though I really couldn't afford it. They said he was approximately 5 months old and they did x-rays and found that his right femur was broken in 2 places and he needed surgery. When they told us how much I cried because I was afraid we would just have to put him down. We had recently filed bankruptcy and were already having problems meeting our bills. My husband and I decided that we just weren't able to allow them to euthanize him, so we used the money that was for our house payment to pay for his surgery. He underwent the surgery and actually died on the operating table but he is a fighter and they were able to resuscitate him. Now we are at risk of losing our home. I am not used to having to ask for help from anyone but I cannot think of any other way. Please help if you are able and maybe one day we will be able to return the favor to someone else that is in a bind. Thank you.
