Don't Let Galileo Go Blind

Galileo is a beautiful, kind, gentle, 4 year old, male siberian husky. I adopted him on August 22 2013. He was surrendered there because his owners thought he was too afraid of everything. Little did they know, he had developed cataracts in both eyes and couldn't see very well what was in front of him. His eyes are getting worse, and if he is not provided with the expensive surgery he needs, he will go blind. My name is Paige, and I am a determined 14 year old girl, who is desperately trying to help this beautiful dog. However, I am working at $10/h and won't be able to save enough money in time before his eyes get too cloudy for the surgery. I need your help. I won't let myself sit around while Galileo looses his eyesight. He is still young, and has the potential to live a vibrant and eventful life. The surgery can cost anywhere between 3000$-6000$ so if we raise 5000$, and it is not enough, I will personally pay the difference. However, if we raise 5000$ and it is exceeding the cost, the rest will be donated to the Calgary Humane Society to help other animals. Please donate, every penny counts! As my Great Grandma Grant used to say,
"Take care of the nickels and dimes, and the dollars will take care of themselves."

I heard about Galileo and your cause through your Mom, she is a client of mine. My 6 year old Dobe (Dolce) has a slight case of cataract in her left eye and I could not imagine being in your position. I am sharing your goal with anyone I can including my poo pick up company, the kennel I take Dolce too when she needs a vacation and my pet store that I buy Dolce's food and such. I'm happy to donate to your cause and I hope that all the dog lovers in my life will do the same! I must tell you that the way you have spread the information for your cause is inspiring. Good Luck!!
