Help Ruby Walk Again!

Ruby, my young Pembroke Welsh corgi, has a Right Cranial Cruciate Rupture, basically like an ACL tear in humans. She needs a TPLO surgery at the University of Minnesota Veterinary School, which is very expensive. The orthopedic vet at Kindness Animal Hospital in Grand Forks, ND is recommending me to a specialist for this surgery at U. of MN, as it is not done locally. It is a 350-mile drive, plus overnight stay in a hotel while Ruby is recovering. I live on social security disability and don't have any savings at present due to my own high medical bills. This surgery will save her leg. She cannot have a good quality of life without surgery, and she will always be in pain. She is only 15 months old. She is my whole life. Please help whatever you can, even $5. Thank you. You will save her quality of life, as well as my own. She is everything to me.
