Gracie's ACL surgery

This is Gracie.   Puppies and More Rescue got a call from someone down in South Carolina a few months ago.  She said her husband was down working on their 2nd home. He called her in a panic and said this dog wondered on his property with 7 babies following her.  She was tired, hungry and thirsty.   She was not in good shape at all. Amazing that she had kept her 7 babies alive.  We think she was dumped.   The homeowner contacted several shelters but all were full.   His wife heard about Puppies and More Rescue.  She reached out to me.   Her husband had to return back to NJ and he didnt know what to do.   The 7 babies were all about 25 lbs each.  We think Gracie is a Golden Ret/Shep mix. She weighs 50 lbs.      
We could not have him leave them behind.   We quickly came up with a plan.  We needed a foster home for momma and a foster home for each baby.    
I had no idea what we would be dealing with.   Gracie could be Heartworm positive, she could have parasites skin issues etc etc.  Was not sure what this was going to cost the rescue.  
A week or so later the homeowner borrowed and bought crates for everyone and started the long drive to NJ.
A couple months later this is our situation.   Babies all found great homes.  Momma was heartworm positive, had parasites, skin issues etc.   What we didnt bargain for was a torn ACL.   She must have surgery before we she can hope to find a forever family.   Gracie is the sweetest girl!   So grateful to be alive and in a wonderful foster home.   We want to schedule surgery as soon as possible. We just need to raise 1500.00    Please help us to help her.   Any amount is appreciated.   Thank you!
