Heart's surgery

Hi, I'm Heart. I'm a dog. I live in Joshua Tree, California with my pet human, Chris

I hurt my leg. It didn't seem like much at first: I'd just limp for a while and then I'd be okay. But now it really hurts , and when Chris took me to the doctor's they said I need surgery.

There's a thing in my left knee called a cranial cruciate ligament . Apparently mine is broken. They can probably fix it, but it will cost four or five thousand dollars.

For perspective, that's like $ 28K in dog money.

Chris can save money fast enough to be able to pay for my surgery by the end of the year.  But it hurts now, and it gets worse the longer we wait.

I know some of you like reading about me and seeing my pictures. If you could help us pay for the surgery sooner, I'll get well faster.

The amount we're raising here is just for the surgery. (Chris says he's shopping around for bargains.) Any money you donate beyond the cost of surgery will pay for medicine, vet checkups, cones of shame, and that kind of thing. Anything extra after we pay for those will go to Desert Dharma Dog Rescue, the organization that rescued me in the first place.  

Please help if you can. Thank you.
