Raising Funds for Teddy's Surgery

Teddy the Pomeranian was attacked by a Golden Retriever and now is in a fight for his life. His injuries are considered critical requiring a $3000 surgery to survive. Unfortunately, Teddy's family is not financially able to pay for Teddy's surgery. Their only option was to say "goodbye" We are rallying support to raise funds for Teddy's surgery so they don't have too. 
"The Story"
I was at South Seattle Vet tonight to pick up medications for my dog. Immediately, I saw a elderly lady in a arm sling & (who I assumed was her daughter) both sobbing on the bench. My heart sank. What happen? Or do I dare ask? I did. Their 7 Yr old Pomeranian was attacked by the neighbors Golden Retriever and sustained punture wounds & crushed ribs. The other daughter, was watching the Retriever for the neighbors, while they were out of town. Sadly, they are unavailable to receive a phone call. The surgery was estimated at $3,000 and after learning this they cried more. They had no credit cards, and no financial assistance to help. They would have to euthanize their dog. The nurse handed their little dog Teddy back to them to go say goodbye to her 7 Yr old son. It was heart wrenching to watch this little fluff ball be handed off to say goodbye. I know he has a chance to live but they have no financial means to help him. I stepped in ...I had to I couldn't stand it. I offered to put his, surgery on 6 dogrees Rescue account at South Seattle Vet. They cried more ...the receptionist cried everyone, was crying...I was like "what just happened" Teddy now has a chance and a little 7 Yr old boy won't have to deal with saying goodbye to his Teddy.  Please consider a donation no amount is too small.
