28780984_15225385180_r.jpegThis is my boy Murphy.  He is 7 years old.  He has been my sidekick and bestfriend since I got him when he was 8 weeks old.  Murphy and his younger brother Riley are always at my side as I am 100% disabled.  They are the reason I get out of bed in the morning.  

Shortly before Christmas Murphy slipped on ice and tore his Acl.  Murph is hanging in there doing the best he can but is in pain and limps everywhere we go.  Murphman needs surgery to fix his acl and to fix his quality of life.  

The Vet would like to do surgery as soon as possible this month.   However I do not have the money for the surgery.  This is where I am asking for your help.  

I can not bare to see my buddy Murph in pain and if I can not raise enough money for his surgery,  I will be forced to give up my loyal bestfriend to a foster family for good, who would be able to afford the care that Murphy so desperately needs and deserves!

Murph and Riley mean everything to myself, my son and my 11 year old daughter.  Riley would be lost without his older brother as Murphy as been by his side everyday of his life.  We would be destroyed without Murphy.  However all the years of unconditional love Murphman has given my family,  I need in return to do what is best for Murph now.

Thank you for the time to see and read my story.  Any help that anyone can provide to help keep Murphy with his family would be appreciated more than you will ever know.  If you cant donate I totally understand,  but if you can keep Murphy in your thoughts and prayers and help share our story?

Thank you, 
Doug Killam
