Our family is requesting help for "Riley" our 1 year old dog, who desperately needs to have his knees repaired and be able to walk

We got Riley at a Rescue Center at 7 weeks old, and 2 days later, we found out he had Parvovirus. We chose to save him, so the Dr. started treatment on him, with aggressive antibiotics, which was a 1 week stay at a Hospital.. He pulled through. Now, that he's a year old, he has been doing less running and playing at the dog park.. And during the night, he was crying and in severe pain. So we took him to the Dr. and both his knees are bad,and now the left knee is ruptured. He needs a TTA repair on both of them. Then the Dr. ordered X-Rays on his hip, said he wasn't walking right. The Hip x-rays came back, and the left hip was totally pulled out of socket. The Dr. said an injury like that, would have to be like getting hit by a car. Which we told him that couldn't have happened, we baby him all the time. He's leashed walk also. So the Dr. said we have to perform surgery on him in the next 3 weeks, no longer than that. So we agreed. After the surgery the Dr. said it wasn't an injury, but a severe birth defect in the hip. He was in surgery for 3 hours, the Dr. said it was so messed up in there, but he put in a Toggle pin. He's just now recuperating from that. But will be facing 2 more surgeries on his rear knees. We have no more money, I already used my Care Credit for this surgery. The Dr.said without this surgery he will go lame for sure. Please help!
