Pepper needs life-saving Surgery

This is Pepper. He's a Lab / ? mix that my daughter rescued as a puppy about 5 years ago.  He's a friendly, loving, happy boy. He loves his Mom and Dad, his fur siblings Artemis and Arya (cats) and he hasn't met a person he didn't like. About a month ago, Pepper started having tummy aches. This went on sporadically for a few weeks, but last week he got really bad. His mom took him to the vet, who put him on meds hoping that it was an infection. They ran bloodwork, and his liver enzymes were haywire. After doing more testing and an Ultrasound today, a specialist discovered that he has Pancreatitis and crystalized Gall Bladder mucous and his Gall Bladder needs to be removed before it ruptures.  This should be done in the next 2 weeks. But, Pepper's mom & dad just don't have the money required to get this life-saving surgery done. They need $6000 for the surgery and tests/biopsy required. Unfortunately, his mom/dad have depleted all of their resources to get to this stage. If you can see it in your heart, can you help a furry guy who has brought so much love and happiness to everyone he meets? His mom is beside herself with worry that she's going to lose "the love of her life" and will be forever grateful for any small donation that you can make.    ****UPDATE!!  Pepper's mom has found a vet that is willing to do the surgery for less, so we have lowered the amount needed accordingly!! **** A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE DONATED- YOU ARE ALL LIFESAVERS!!
