This is funding for my foster dog's much needed surgery. I don't want to give up on Pearl but I need your help!

I decided about two months ago that I was going to foster a dog from the city shelter I volunteered at. Shortly after bringing her home, I was told that she most likely needed expensive ACL surgery. Since the shelter won’t help me at all, I have been trying everything I can to drum up funding for surgery. I know if I return her to the shelter, she will be euthanized and I can’t let her die for such a ridiculous reason.

Pearl is a three year old Am staff/bull terrier mix and she is just so precious. She gets along with other dogs and cats, kids, and knows basic commands. Pearl listens very well and is also potty trained. She is a very happy dog, has relatively low energy (compared to other pitties), loves to cuddle, and just soaks up any love you want to give her.

She was already abandoned twice - the second time she was tied to a pole without H2O or food in a well known dog fighting area. I have been trying everything possible not to give up on her. I already have four dogs, and one of them also needs the exact same surgery so all of my extra money is going to him.

After months of research, I was graciously given the name of a ortho. who was willing to do her surgery at a discounted rate of $800. I already have a seperate donation of $200. While that is a huge weight off of my shoulders, I still am unable to afford that. She is in constant pain so I need to get her surgery soon.

I am trying and willing to do anything at this point. In addition to this fundraiser, I am still reaching out to many organizations. Thank you for your consideration. I am fighting as hard as I can for her BUT I NEED YOUR HELP!
