Help save Leonidas (Leo)

My baby boy Leo was hit by a car yesterday evening while I was at work.  I was contacted by the AKC Reunite that my Leo was found and to call Mercy Crusade wellness center this is a Spay and Neuter place about 3 min from my home.  When I called they told me that Leo was brought in and was being taken to our local animal shelter in Camarillo, CA and that he was hit by a car.  They were not equiped to help him there and were closing.  I don't remember much after because I was in shock and scared and wanted to get to him as fast as I could.  My heart sank he is so little as I drove to the animal shelter all I could do was pray he was still alive.  When I arrived at the animal shelter I was told he was alert but afraid.  They said he would need to be seen by a vet cause they thought his right let was broken.   At this time my vet was already closed my only  option was to take him home till the morning or to an emergency 24hr hospital.  I called to see if they would take him and how much it would cost they told me it was $86 just to be seen and $400 for the xrays not including what was needed to treat him.  I don't have that kind of money and decided to take him home and will take him to our vent first thing in the morning.  He layed next to me all night.  I was not able to sleep and was worried and struggling if I was doing the right thing.  I stayed up with him all night praying that he would be okay till I could take him in to be seen by our vet.  I took him into the vet first thing in the morning 8am and was told it would cost $1,141.14 just to get urine, blood and xrays on his back legs and chest.  Money was needed in order to treat him.  My mom was able to apply for care credit since at this time I only had $150.00 in care credit.  I use this for all three of my pets annual visits and flee medication.  I did not have pet insureance but will be looking into it for all three of them.  Thank god for my mom she saved my Leo and he is getting the help he needs.   They will call me as soon as the results come in and give me the results and details.  He will need allot of TLC.  I am asking for help to repay my mom back for helping me with Leo  anything you can help with is very much appreciated for his continued care and future surgeries if needed.  Thank you and God Bless you.
