Rusty's Surgery Fund

This is my sweet pup, Rusty. I got him as a rescue when he was about 1. I wasn't necessarily looking for a dog at the time, but when I first saw him, I was immediately in love with him. He is the sweetest, friendliest, most loving dog I have ever seen. He has always been very upbeat and happy.

A few weeks back, we noticed he seemed to be in a lot of pain. He wasn't showing his usual signs of spunk and happiness. We took him to the vet 3 separate times. Initially, they thought it was neurological issue. However, on our 3rd visit, during a more extensive exam, they discovered it was in his leg, not his brain. (Thank God) But they informed us that Rusty has a torn ACL.

However, we have been informed that surgery is really the only option, but it will cost in the neighborhood of $3500. That is just far beyond our means at this point. A friend recommended we try a GoFundMe account. Up until now, I really didn't want to have to resort to this, but it is evident that he needs surgery sooner rather than later.

Rusty's pain has gotten worse and worse over the past few days. It is evident that the pain is excruciating for him. He is constantly shaking and shrieking. I feel horrible for him. It breaks my heart to see him in such pain. I really want to be able to get him the surgery he needs so that he can recover and go back to being the happy, healthy dog that he has always been.

We would both greatly appreciate any and all financial support! Thank you so much!
