(Hello my name is Rhonda Mann-Wilson, (and Son Ron Spradlin) writing today on behalf of the family dog Chisom (whom was stroke by a hit and run Driver July 8th.). As you can see by the home video of Chisom attached here, he is currently at home not mobile and a decision has to be quickly about what to do about his broken hip and leg.
Chisom has a broken hip, and multi fractures along his rear leg. The Vet suggested as Chismon is healthy and only 8 months old Chisom will heal well.
The options are (1) surgery to save the hip and/or leg, (2) amputation of the leg. Depending on the surgery recommended by Vet has the cost are estimated to be anywhere from 2,500-5,000.
Our family is simply not in a position at this moment to totally to fund his care immediately, which is the need (as the Vet states action must be taken by July 21st or other complications will occur).
Thus the GoFundMe account. Chismon is pure love and it is kills us to know there is simply not enough money to help him at this moment. So we are putting this out to the universe, you our family and friends in hopes you may be in a position to make a donation no matter the amount for Chisom surgery.
The final decision will be based on the surgeon and whatever is best for Chisom, and funds available of coarse.
If you are in a position to help with any amount we thank you more than you know. Rhonda has bonded with her best friend more than any pet I has seen before, Chismon is pure love for her.
Thank you for your consideration so Chismon can get treatment and return home healthy to live out his long life.
