Please unite with The Castro's, Families, Neighbors and Friends in raising the funds to help our family pet who needs to have surgery asap.

On 10/26/12, my 7 year old son was walking out the back door of our home, as he did, our dog ran past him so fast, he didn't have a chance to stop him. Our dog "hercules" ran into the street and was hit by an oncoming truck. The guy was so kind enough to stop, and check on our dog. However, we had to rush Hercules to the nearest hospital. His mouth was ripped open, his eye was swallon, he was scraped up pretty bad, and the vet found that he had a badly broke front leg. I was told it would cost between $2500-$3000 to have his leg fixed. I had already paid $1000+ just from the Xray's, examinations, and pain management. So when they told me how much the surgery would be, I thought I would have to put our family friend to sleep. But then I told myself NO! I will not put my best friend to sleep because of this! All he needs is his leg fixed, that is no reason to lose him or end his life. I am now determined to do whatever it is I need to try to raise the funds so I can get my dog the surgery he needs. At the very least, I need to raise a minimum of $1900, and this will pay for an amputation. I would rather have my best friend with 3 legs then not have him at all, which would ultimately devistate not only my 2 children, but me as well. You can see the love for our friend in his son is laying behind him and has barely left his side. So I am here, reaching out to everyone to please help my best friend get the care he needs. He was hospitalized at Baring Boulevard Animal Hospital in Sparks, NV, their # is 775-358-6880, this is where I would have his surgery done at. I have to whatever I possibly can to raise these funds and I am turning to you to please help us. God bless!!!
