This fund is to provide our beloved Rocco the surgery he needs to get back on all fours. Please help ease his pain soon!

My sweet year old pup Rocco is in need of a very costly surgery to repair the two breaks in his rear left leg. After an office visit, exam, x-rays, and $217; I was referred to another vet who has estimated upwards of $1800 for the surgery. The first opening for surgery is Tuesday March 13th. I am a single mother and am just not capable of coming up with that kind of money. I am embarrassed to ask for help, but all other options have been exhausted and I will not put my boy down over a broken leg! Rocco has been a trooper throughout the entire ordeal. He hasn't growled once at anyone regardless of his pain or discomfort, he just continues to wag his tail. He whines only when he can't seem to get comfortable. My heart is breaking for my sweet boy as he rests his head in my lap raising his eyes towards mine as if begging me to make him better. His buddy, our kitty Vinny hangs out by his side anxiously awaiting his recovery so that they can play, and my 4 yr old daughter doesn't understand "Why wont the 'veternarnian' just make Rocco's leg better?" I don't know how to respond. I am doing my best to keep him comfortable as I attempt to raise the funds for his surgery.

For more information please feel free to email me at

I would like to thank you all in advance for your generous donations and concern. Any additional advice or suggestions to raise the funds neccessary for his surgery are welcome!
