Help Anakin Walk Again

My name is Anakin, I am an one and a half year old service animal. At 5:50 PM on December 22nd, I was out with my aunt ensuring her safety while receiving her food delivery when someone ran me over!! The person didn’t even bother to stop to see if I was alright. I have been in so much pain. I am walking with a limp, having a hard time breathing, coughing, and I wake up in pain. I went to the hospital and the doctors said that my dad has to pay $3,000-$4,000 to get me all fixed up again. This price includes my x-rays, medication, and a cast or crutch for my arm. Depending on the severity of my injuries I may even have to get surgery and physical therapy. I’d like to get fixed up as soon as possible to relieve some of my pain and family’s worrying. I mean the world to my dad, Jahi, so I’d be truly grateful if you all could help me and family.
