HELP KILO,A SERVICE DOG IN TRAINING

Please help pay for an urgent surgery for my dog Kilo! He is currently in training to become a certified service dog. He has already completed the first of three tests to become a service dog and the next two tests were scheduled for the next two weeks at Elite K9 Training, which he would have passed with flying colors. Today in the course of his training,he broke 2 bones in his leg completely in half. Options are limited for this kind of injury. The surgery being one option and the other option is amputation. Kilo was rescued from Small World Animal Rescue in Girard, OH. From the day that I rescued him he has had such a positive impact on my life. Kilo is the definition of "mans best friend." Not only does he listen to commands, he feels my emotions and knows exactly what to do to keep me calm. I am a combat veteran of the United States Marine Corp that struggles with severe PTSD. I have been battling PTSD for years and Kilo has been by my side through it all. I am currently unemployed because I am in an inpatient treatment facility for PTSD. On top of just the surgery cost, Kilo will also have follow up appointments and physical therapy. This is a close estimate for all expenses. If there is any amount of money left over, I will be sure to pay it forward to help other animals at Elite K9 Training and Small World Animal Rescue. Kilo and I will be forever grateful for any amount of help to get us through this difficult time. We thank you in advance! Sincerely, Bill Lowry
