Lola Needs Surgery

Hello Everyone,

A little about me and my love for Lola: I am 29 year old single gal.  I work for one of the best companies in the world, and happen to love my job.  I am very passionate and grateful for the way my life has turned out so far. Family, yoga, friends, God, and MY DOG-Lola, are the things that bring me the most joy.   Adopting Lola 2 years ago was one of the best decisions I've made.  She's helped me through a lot of tough times by her quirky and sweet nature and also having a responsibilty for her helps me each day.  I am always surprised when people are scared of pitbulls.  I find them to be the sweetest, cuddliest breed!   

More about Miss Lola:  Lola is a 2 year old rescue lab/pitbull mix.  She is a sweetheart and truly my best friend.  She is normally very active.  We like to run, walk, play in the snow, play fetch, and snuggle on the couch. Being a rescue, Lola has always had special needs.  She's on puppy prozac which helps her feel less anxious.  She has a lot of food allergies, so I spend quite a bit of money on special food for her, but she is worth every penny!

A couple weeks ago, Lola fell off my bed and tore her cruciate ligament in her right hind leg and then proceeded to tear the other one due to putting all her weight on her left hind leg.  She has been in a lot of pain! :(  We've spent a lot of time at the vet the past couple weeks to manage her pain and plan for surgeries.  I never planned something would happen like this to a 2 year old healthy dog.   She will have her first surgery on March 10th and the UW-Vet School in Madison, Wisconsin.  Each leg will cost us $3[phone redacted].

I'd really love any help I can get.  I've had a lot of friends and family members support us in a variety of ways.  Every little bit will help!

Thank you!!
-Carrie & Lola
