This is the help Gomez in his time of need fund. Please show your support!

Gomez is in desperate need of medical attention but unfortunately the only pet hospital needs payment in full before they will begin to work on my best buddy. We do not have the means to do this in any way shape or form. We are looking for help from all our family, friends, and friends of friends. Gomez got out of the yard through a hole in the fence caused by some wind damage while we working outside on the opposite side of the house. Out of nowhere we heard what all dog owners fear most and that was OUR dog being attacked by a stray dog. We hurried to stop the fight with each running step of desperation to stop the pain that was being inflected onto Gomez. When we got close enough the stray dog took off and was out of sight in a hurry. Poor Gomez was just laying there after this malicious wounding and it was clear we had to take him to the emergency room right away. He had lacerations all over the place that were down through the muscle. Then he turned his head to the left exposing a 4-5 inch gash that was spread open by two inches wide. Now that's where the urgency to get to the vet hospital became greater. After paying $100 dollars before they would even look at him, the waiting game began. Jenn and I sat there waiting to hear something for just over two hours. With nerves stretched and tested to their limits they finally called us into the back.... where we waited some more. Upon talking to the doctor it was clear Gomez needed stitches and drains put in to have him heal correctly. We tried EVERYTHING- we applied for credit and they denied us both! Option #1 was to pull $2,000-$2,500 out of thin air and option #2 was to get an anti-biotic, pain reliever, and treat the wounds ourselves (unfortunately this was really the only option) and hope his poor neck would heal properly without becoming septic. Gomez is home with us now and there is still time to get him the care he really needs and deserves. He has been Jenn's loyal sidekick for almost ten years and Marissa's first dog. I know times are tough for everybody out there but I'm not asking for a lot. Anything helps- A dollar from all our friends could make it possible within a day or two. Please spread the word and help our poor, loyal, defenseless best friend in his time of need. He never asks for anything besides treats and the ball to be thrown. Thank you for reading and ANYTHING will help.
