My little dog Bria was seriously ill and required emergency hospitalization. Can you help me cover her expenses?

Many of you know and love my little dog, Bria. She was picked up by Animal Control in Hillsboro about 4 years ago, starving and lame. Indigo Rescue took her in, provided her with knee surgery, and rehabilitated her. I adopted her as soon as she had recuperated from surgery. Thank you to everyone who has generously donated! We have raised almost 30% of the funds required to pay for her hospitalization and medications!

Bria recently broke a tooth and had to have it pulled. Neglect in her early life has likely contributed to her ongoing dental issues. A few days after surgery, she began vomiting large amounts of blood. I rushed her to NW Veterinary Specialists for emergency treatment. Upon arrival, she was hypothermic (and about to go into shock) from the blood loss. Her red blood cell count was so low that she required a transfusion. The vets caring for her believe she may also have an ulcer. Her ultrasound looked good, though, and I was able to bring her home. Excluding her dental surgery, Bria's medical bill stands at just over $2,100.

I believe Bria deserved every chance at regaining her health, and I authorized all the necessary medical treatment. She is feeling GREAT now! Bria is on medications for an ulcer, but has her old energy back and is busy causing trouble at home. :-)

Now I have 6 months to pay for her medical care, but am facing significant financial hardship due to issues including limited work hours and other debt repayment. Can you help me fund her necessary medical care?
