Colby's Medical Expenses

My dog Colby is my whole life. He has been with me through it all. Any person that knows me, whether they barely know me, or they've known me my whole life, knows how much Colby means to me. 
On Sunday Feb 7th Colby was hit by a car in front of our home. He was rushed to Ocean State Veterinary Hospital where they found both his back legs were fractured. On Monday he had surgery on both legs, putting screws and plates in each leg to hold the bone back together. His right leg had splintered and has 8 plates holding it together. He also has a drain in his chest and several other lacerations. With both legs being fractured it's going to take 6-8 weeks until he can walk and tons of physical therapy to get his strength back. 
If any of you have ever had to take a pet to Ocean State Veterinary Hospital (or any emergency hospital), you understand the extremely high costs that go along with it. They saved my dogs life, and I would do whatever it takes to keep him alive.
After having just bought our first house just 2 months ago money was already tight. So I am asking for any amount you can give to help with Colbys medical expenses. Any little bit would truly count!
I love this dog more than anything, and he has a long road of recovery ahead of him. But the fact he even survived being hit by a car shows this truly amazing dog is a superhero and I know he will get through this mess. 
I know many of you already understand the bond that I have with this dog and I just want to be sure we have the funds to get him back to his same old goofy self.
Thank you so much in advance, all your support means so much!
