Einstein's Vet Bill

My dog Einstein was attacked by a pit bull while I was walking him on a leash in my neighborhood on June 25, 2017.  He was rushed to an emergency animal clinic and received surgery to repair serious injury to his hip and body. He currently has a drain tube to remove fluids while severe bruising causes swelling. His skin may or may not heal completely, and infection and tissue necrosis may happen due to the lack of blood flow from the skin being ripped. 

At at this point finances are a problem because I am unemployed in the summer and the owner of the pit bull does not accept any responsibility. He does have to go to court because we are prosecuting. However, to get him to pay for my dog's medical care is unlikely. First I will have to file a claim in small claims court. Secondly, even if he is found responsible for the bill, it will be up to me to get him to pay. I get the feeling he's not going to. However, if I do get a payment from him someday, I promise to donate any money received from Gofundme to an animal charity. 

I know now a lot of my friends care but may not be able to pitch anything in. Your get well wishes are more important. Thanks everyone.
