Zeus Needs Your Help!

Hi I am Zeus, I have met many of you and see many more on FB, or you have seen me!  I have torn my ACL on my back leg and when we went to the emergency Animal Specialty Hospital (ASH) they discovered I  have a heart murmur also. We visited with the Orthopedic Vet, Dr. Marc Havig, who Mommy says reminded her of a young Uncle Pete who was the best Equine Vet ever (her opinion), he passed in 2010, and she misses him! If he were still alive we would be driving to Ohio right now! Dr. Havig said I need Arthroscopic surgery and to see a Cardiologist first, to make sure I am okay to go under Anesthesia. So we will see the Cardiologist on Saturday, September 15th, and that visit will be $616 to have the tests and consultation. She has already spent $500 for the emergency and Orthopedic consult.  If I can have the surgery, it will be 8-week recovery with Physical Therapy at a cost of about $4000.  This came at a very bad time for Mommy, as she is facing some medical issues herself, some of which may not be covered by insurance. She has not been working very much, as she has been recovering from a bad fall and doing a lot of Physical Therapy and doctor visits herself.  I put this video of me and my little brother Gideon, when he first came to live with us, so you can see that I have other responsibilities other than taking care of my Mommy. We also visit a lot of places and make people happy, like Golisano Children's Hospital, so I need to get my leg fixed so I can keep serving. My Mommy was feeling very sad about all of this and my Aunt Jade suggested she do a GoFundMe, like she did when she went on her Mission Trip. So I thought that was an awesome idea and would love to surprise her by raising the money with friends and family and social media. Do you think you might be able to help?  I know people love animals, I know my Mommy does and she is my everything, I think I am pretty important to her too. Thank you for your help, if you cannot  help financially, will you please pray for both of us? God bless you! Love, Zeus
