Wheatley’s ACL Surgery Fund

Wheatley is a 6 year old loveable labradoodle, who loves to play ball with his buddy Chip. A few days ago, Wheatley was trying to keep up with his buddy while playing fetch and ended up fully tearing one of his ACL's. After a grueling vet visit,  we found out he had fully torn one ACL, and partially torn the other! Poor Wheatley is now couch-bound and unable to participate in his daily activities which just breaks all of our hearts. Luckily, he is still able to do his favorite thing, which is snuggling in bed.

In order to get Wheatley back on his feet, the vet strongly suggested performing a bilateral TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy), meaning he needs both ACL's repaired. I'm asking for help, which I normally wouldn't do, however his surgery is quite a bit more than I can pay out of pocket. I will post pictures to show what the surgery costs once I know more. The surgeon is currently estimating at least $4500, however every little bit helps.

I know Wheatley has a lot of supporters out there because he has touched so many hearts. He thanks you you all from the bottom of his heart. Even if you are unable to donate, we appreciate you reading our story and sending out awareness! He also accepts payments in the form of cuddles!
