Please Help Me Keep Agua

Friends, Family, Strangers and Generous dog loving people.

A few days ago I went through something very horrible. My dog Agua, had been sick for a couple of days. He refused to eat, to walk or to even move and do anything at all. When I took him to the vet on Saturday, the Vet was able to do initial examination on Agua but needed to do additional to see what is really wrong. I only had $500 to do the initial fund and did not have any more to fund for his second examination. I went home that night feeling helpless as I knew that something was wrong with my dog but was not sure what. The Vet then called me to tell me that he had performed an xray at no charge to look into Agua. He told me that there was something in his stomach causing him to vomit and not eat and that we needed to do a surgery - fast. However a surgery meant a bigger bill, which I could not afford to begin with.

The next day Sunday after work I came by to visit again and saw that Agua had gotten worse. Since the Vet knew I didn't have the money he advised me to put Agua down to stop his pain. I refused and was so helpless I didn't know what to do. I saw my dog suffering but I wasn't able to do anything for him. I begged the Vet and eventually he came to a proposal. Agua will undergo surgery and If it does not go well, the Vet has the right to put him down. If Agua survives, I would have to come up with $2600 within three days or the Vet will surrender Agua to the SPCA. Out of desperation, I signed the agreement since I needed to take that risk of saving Agua's life.

Agua has survived the surgery and is slowly trying to recover. As the third day comes closer, Agua is being nursed back to health with IVs and medicine which is slowly adding to the amount.

I still do not have the money to pay for his bills with my student loans, starting a new job and everything in between. I need your help to open up your hearts and let me keep my dog. I took the risk of losing him just to save his life. Not every one of you may have a pet but all of you have someone you love as much as I love Agua.

Please help me keep Agua.
