Help us save our Charlie Girl

Recently our four year old Dalmatian Charlie became extremely unwell and was in an excruciating amount of pain. After several trips to the Vets Charlie undertook emergency surgery after it was discovered she had eaten something which completely tore open her small and large intestines. We've been told that Charlie only has a 50% chance of surviving the surgery despite it being a success. We're now roughly 24 hours post surgery and our Charlie Girl is still refusing to eat, but is battling through the pain.

Normally Maddy and I wouldn't take this approach, but after forking out about $10,000 in fees thus far, we are almost completely out of money. As Charlie still isn't eating it's expected she will have to sleep over at the Vets for a few more nights, and may have to go into surgery again this weekend to clear any excess fluid. This will cost us roughly another $5k-$10k

Any donation would be extremely appreciated, and if it's any incentive to my mates, if we hit $300 in donations I'll shave my head as a gesture of gratitude.

Thanks in advance,
