Hip replacement surgery for our kelpie

Our baby girl Khaleesi (kelpie ×) needs surgery today.
She needs a hip replacement that is estimated to cost $6500 - $9000.
Khalessi is young, she is turning 4 this Saturday (29th June 2019).  She is more than a pet to us, she is a part of our family, our three young children all refer to her as their sister & my partner & I refer to her as one of children.
This could not have happened at a more unfortunate time (although there is no good timing for this kind of thing).. Her whole life we have lived on very little land, subdivided blocks. We are just about to move to Bass where she will have an acre of land to enjoy, although without this surgery, she simply wont be able..
Khalessi dislocated her leg doing something so usual, she simply jumped up the stairs of the decking. It was wet, she slipped, her leg went between two stairs but her body kept moving forward popping her leg out of place. She immediately yelped & could not stand on either of her back legs. 
We took her to the Cowes Vet, transporting & getting her into the vet was extremely painful for her, so much that she wet herself.  She was then sedated in order to examine her & get xrays that showed the dislocation. The vet attempted to pop her leg back into place twice with no success, her leg popped straight back out. Khaleesi's xrays were then sent to a specialist. The specialist explained that her joint seems to be too shallow (caused my mild hip displasia) meaning the only option that will allow her to live life to the fullest is a total hip replacement.
Our family really needs your help & every cent will help our beautiful girl live the life that she deserves.
