Charlie Needs Leg Surgery

In April of 2020, I found out that my precious Charlie would need surgery on her left hind knee to repair her cruciate ligament. The vet told me that it would cost $4500 and that her right knee would likely need the same surgery within the year, another $4500. Charlie was only 2 years old when I found out. She is my first dog and I was (and still am) devastated by the news. I have a decent enough job, but $9000 is a lot money.

It's now January 2020 and in eight months I've managed to save $2500. Charlie is suffering. She needs this surgery as soon as possible, and I am simply not able to save fast enough to give her quality of life she deserves.  She has been my anchor in the very difficult year of 2020 and if all goes as planned, she will continue to be for many years. 

Any support you can give, even the smallest amount, means the world to me. I simply cannot do this alone. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
