Broken Puppy Full of Faith

Hello all,
This is an unfortunate situation of our family pleading for the generosity and kindness from all puppy lovers out there. Princeton is a happy, young pup who just had a birthday August 6th. Life is always exciting and full of adventures for our Princeton. Unfortunately, on Tuesday, August 12th Princeton was accompanying our grandfather to the mailbox and he was the victim in horrible hit and run. Our family, devastated, is faced with two have a surgery in order to repair what X-ray's revealed to be a fracture of his left acetabulum (portion in the pelvic joint), a severely dislocated hip joint, and multiple fractures on his pelvis. OR - Humane Euthanasia (to be
put to sleep). We do not have the heart to put down our family member, ESPECIALLY after the Vet's summary that Princeton was alert and responsive with no signs of neurological damages and a quote from the summary: "an unremarkable [for these circumstances] physical examination". We simply cannot accept it in our hearts to put down our beloved puppy because of a few fractured bones that could be healed through surgery. Therein is our struggle; the surgery specialists estimated Princeton's orthopedic surgery to be anywhere from $8,000 +. At this time we are in such a struggle financially and cannot provide the money to pay for this surgery. We looked into alternative means and even applied for a "CareCredit" Credit card, which we were approved - but only for $500, which will not be enough. We are so dismayed and troubled - how can we choose to terminate a life over just a few broken bones? If we had a shattered leg, and could not afford the surgery we certainly would never give up on our life due to financial struggles? We wouldn't end a life over a few plates and screws. So our family is humbly pleading for anyone to donate to our cause and desperate need to save one of our family members, our beloved puppy Princeton, whom we cannot give up on - especially since he has been our best friend from the beginning and certainly would never give up on us. Any donation will be truly appreciated from the bottom of our hearts. We will keep you guys posted on his progress and upload videos of him when he is back to his happy playful self. We sincerely appreciate any gestures and your prayers to help and are hoping to raise enough to end his suffering, but keep him with us. Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for your aid in our desperate time of need.

With love, 
A Georgia  Family
