Life Saving Surgery for Iggy

Our three year old Chihuahua rescue needs surgery to remove his broken leg and turn him into a happy, healthy tripod pup! 

We don't know how he sustained the injury -- the vet thinks it could have been an old fracture that never healed right -- but his hind leg was broken in such a location and in such a way that we have no other options but to amputate the leg or to put Iggy to sleep. 

Our family is in the middle of a big move across the Pacific ocean to Oregon (we leave in just ten days!) so not only is this is bad timing overall, but most unfortunately we do not currently have the funds available to cover even half of the cost of Igor's surgery. We are hoping that between us and a few members of our family, with help from you, we could get Igor back on three feet.

Igor is in stable condition now, with his leg braced and pain management medication but this is not a permanent solution. We need to be able to gather the money needed for his surgery by Wednesday, May 29th. 

Iggy is a Very Good Boy and occasionally a bad potato, but his loss would devastate us. Will, Moira, Briana, Iggy, and I would be so grateful for your help.
