Crash's new family reports that he is "the best dog ever!!" Thank you again to everyone who donated, spread the word, and helped to make this a success story.
Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed!! Crash is healing well and was adopted by a wonderful family. If you would still like to donate, all gifts will go to the Animal Resource Center's Tiny Tim Fund to help cases just like Crash. I can't thank you enough - your generosity is inspiring!
Hello everyone - I can't thank you enough for your contributions. Crash has received the surgery he needed and is recovering nicely. While it seems like most of his medical bills have been covered, I would love to be able to give the entire $6000 to the Animal Resource Center. Again, all donations will go to their Tiny Tim fund which is used to help cases just like Crash. If you would consider giving just a little more, I know they would be thrilled. Thank you again.
Crash update: He's been resting and recovering from his surgery at the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center. I saw him last Saturday, and, though he had to stay in his cage, he looked really good and seems to definitely be on the road to recovery! I can't thank you enough for your generous donations and for sharing this story. You all inspire me!
In case you haven't heard, Crash had surgery yesterday at the Tipp City Veterinary Hospital, and they were able to save his leg! He did really well, and will be back at the Animal Resource Center today to relax and recover. I would love to bring them $4000 to cover the vet bill, and we're only $145 away! Thanks everyone!!
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated, shared this story, and offered words of encouragement. We're so close to $4000 - only $220 away!

Thank you so much everyone! I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help. We're almost 10% of the way there - keep spreading the word! thanks!!
Crash, as he is affectionately being called, was hit by a car on the
highway. He has 2 broken legs - the left rear leg is especially bad -
and needs orthopedic surgery. I picked him up when I was driving home a
few nights ago because I saw him lying on the shoulder of the highway.
He couldn't walk, so I carried him to my car and incredibly, he didn't
resist me at all - he was only calm, docile, and very sweet. I then
drove him to the emergency vet clinic where he was treated overnight.
Not knowing what to do next, I called my friend, who enlisted the help
of the Animal Resource Center of Dayton. The ARC was kind enough to
take him, however, they need help covering the cost of his surgery and
rehabilitation. Please donate whatever you can to this sweet dog. We
believe that he is no more than a year old, and will make a wonderful
pet for someone. All donations will go to the Animal Resource Center of
Dayton, OH. Thank you.
