help us w Spirits emergency surgery bills

Spirit ended up needing an emergency surgery to get her uterus removed before it burst as it was swollen and she had an infection , as well as a cyst taken off her mammary glands the bills are already over $3500 and still adding up because she’s had to stay for fluids due to her refusal to eat after the surgery. Details of the full story are below but seriously anything you can do to help me help my bestfriend it would mean the world i’ve had her since she was a tiny puppy that could fit in my little kid hands and i only want the best for her Spirit is almost 9 years old , a few weeks ago she started forming odd growths around her lower belly . Taking her to the vet to get her tested resulted in us learning that she had some type of uti and that her insides were swollen . After that visit we were sent home to wait for test results which told us what we already knew which was that she had an infection in her uterus . that ended up being about $600 and we were left for days waiting to find out what was wrong . one night soon after when i was starting to go to bed i noticed Spirit was shivering so intensely it wasn’t just her body shaking her teeth were chattering and i couldn’t do anything to help her . i took her out all night every hour and she would try to relieve herself but usually nothing would come out she also was panting very hard and i was very concerned . when she was acting the same in the morning i decided to call her original vet (not the one who left us waiting for test results) they told us to bring her in right away and sent us a location where they accepted emergency walk ins . we ended up waiting all day but finally they saw her that night and get her medicine and tests which added up to around another $600 they then had us come in the next morning for surgery right away which was shocking because we thought all she needed was maybe some antibiotics but it was much worse and scarier than we had realized . they gave her medicine to help her get through the night and yesterday morning she went in for surgery which was luckily only $1,200 they had told us it could range up to 6k so we felt blessed but still after her surgery medications from the entire process started adding up to around $1200 in medication alone . they also found out that the weird growth on her belly was a large cyst connected to her mammary gland that they removed . we took her home and my poor puppy cried all night she had a catheter wrapped onto her ankle and a little drainage tube on her belly plus a cone on her head so she didn’t pull her stitches . this morning we brought her in for her check up and to get her catheter removed but because she had refused to eat or drink they ended up keeping her for the day to make sure she has her fluids and to get her eating which has added another $500 . she’s my best friend and i love her so much anything would help even just $5 or to share the link to an animal lover who’d be willing to help . we plan to get her all the help she needs even if it ruins our bank accounts cause she’s a family member and deserves to be loved like she loves us . shes saved my life and now it’s my chance to save hers . seriously anything helps
