The family of Jiggie, a beautiful, loving and energetic Jack Russell Terrier, is uniting to raise money for her emergency veterinarian bills

Our 7-year old Jack Russel Terrier is like our child. She does everything with us, goes everywhere with us, drives us crazy and gives us so much love at the same time - now we need to give her as much love back.

Late last night as I was coming home from work, Jiggie ran into our front yard with excitement to greet me, as she always does. At that moment, I realized that the side gate was left ajar by our rear neighbor. I scrambled to try to close it before she got there, but she ran out to the street to meet me as I walked up the sidewalk.

Our neighbor's enormous and very aggressive how/lab mix, who is constantly escaping their yard despite 1 million complaints to animal services and phone calls to the police even, charged across the street at her.

She of course barked at him and acted like the little Jack Russel fireball that she is, especially when feeling threatened, and he chomped down on her neck and would not release her. It took 4 adults and a log to pry him off her, as she squealed and shrieked. We finally got him off her, ans she is ripped wide open from the side of her rib cage to her throat. I rushed her to the only 24-hour pet hospital I know, where she is now.

Now it's a matter of life and death for Jiggie.

They require 100% of the deposit before they will even help her. We were able to give them a portion of it, but we're not in the financial position to have that much money at the drop of a hat. My partner was laid off from his job this year, and we are struggling not only to take care of our pets, but ourselves as well. We have received support from friends and family but are still in desperate need to get Jiggie the care she needs.

The current medical bill is estimated to be $3,800. I do not have this available to me right now. Any way that you can help us, we would be eternally grateful for.

We are a family of dog lovers - and animal rescuers. Over the years we have rescued and re-homed 9 dogs, and we hope to keep giving back to all the animals in-need that we can. But unfortunately at this time, our support cannot be financial, we can only give them the love and care that they need.
