Poppy's leg is broke AND SO AM I! Parent of a rescued dog needs rescuing from vet bills!

Poppy, our rescued five-year-old pit bull, has a partially torn ACL and needs surgery! Within the past three years, my mom has spent over $30,000 in surgeries for three of my rescued dogs. When we adopted our babies, she was working and financially able to pay for their operations. Unfortunately, since being diagnosed with lupus and fibromyalgia, she can no longer work and can’t pay for another dog’s surgery. When our other dogs needed medical help in the past, they received treatment right away, but poor Poppy has to wait due to insufficient funds. We don’t want to end Poppy’s life due to a completely reparable leg injury, so we’re asking for donations to help Poppy get his life back!

We regularly take our babies hiking and swimming, both of which Poppy LOVE. In fact, Poppy tore his ACL while exploring one of his favorite spots - the dog beach. He is normally quite active, but this injury is forcing him to live a temporary sedentary lifestyle.

Despite being abused by his previous owner, Poppy is now EXTREMELY lovable. He adores everyone and would love the opportunity to lick your face and sit on your lap! He came into our family as a foster dog, but he was so terrified of humans (with good reason) that we felt it was necessary for him to have a permanent home with people that adore him, so we added Poppy to our pack of puppies. Poppy once cowered in fear of humans, but he is now thriving in his new environment. He loves kids, dogs, cats, and even our neighbor, Blossom the Opossum!

My family and I are BEGGING for donors that can contribute to Poppy's surgery, even if it's only $1 - ANYTHING HELPS!
