Lebowski Surgery

This is an Updated Description from Heather -

PLEASE HELP OUR FAMILY!! Last night around 9pm our very loved family dog, Lebowski, jumped from our second story balcony to the concrete below.

After spending hours at the Pet ER in Arroyo Grande, and getting an animal surgeon to evaluate his condition we got news that he is going to need extensive surgery in order to repair his hind leg.

Ordinarily we wouldn't ask anything of friends, but we find ourselves in a unique and difficult situation. The estimated cost of his surgery is more than we can handle alone, and we are asking for any type of help to cover our furry son's veterinary bills. Weather it be $1.00, $5.00, or any amount you might be willing to donate, or simply the sharing of this link in hopes of someone else seeing it and being generous enough to help
Any type of donation to help is absolutely above and beyond appreciated. He is a wonderful, lively, sweet boy who is a very beloved member of our family.

Any donations can be made at the site linked in this post or made by contacting myself or Donne Whitehead. Every single penny will be going to Lebowski's surgery cost and is absolutely appreciated by our whole family.

Thank you all so very much.


The two factors that are going to require surgery is on his hind leg that is broken in several places, and needs to have a plate installed for immobilization and than removed after his shattered bone has healed. He has damage generalized as what you would expect from a dog that fell 2 stories to concrete below.

The fact is that he is in bad shape, is beloved member of the family and is so young, just over 2 years old.

Anyone that has met him knows he is one of the sweetest dogs in the world, loves to play with his ball and doesn't mind when his younger sister Lilianna climbs all over him.

We hope to have a great recovery where he can live a perfect normal life again after this accident and your donations help make that a reality. Again Thanks for taking the time to read this, to get to Lebowski and his family. Anything helps, and it all adds up. Even if you cant give any money; prayers and support by passing on the link can go a long way. Who knows you might even know someone out there that has been in a similar situation and without help things would have been really different for him.
