Please Help Save Chloe's Life!

First I want to thank you for taking the time to read Chloe's story.  Meet Chloe.  Chloe is my 5 year young, miniature Dachshund. Chloe is a very loving, affectionate dog and me and my family love her with all our hearts and can't imagine our life without her!  Chloe has always been a healthy, happy loving dog, and every morning I can find Chloe waiting for me by the front door to take her for her morning walk.  But two days ago I woke up and did not find my little Chloe waiting for me by the front door, instead I found her lying in her bed, covered in urine and feces, whimpering and shaking.  When I went to pick her up, she let out a loud cry, I could tell that she was in a lot pain so I immediately took her to the Veterinarian who diagnosed Chloe with severe IVDD, Intervertebral Disk Disease which can lead to death. IVDD affects 19 to 24% of all Dachshunds.  The Veterinarian told me that Chloe needs surgery and the surgery would cost $7,000.00.  I explained my financial situation to the Veterinarian, and asked if we could work out a payment plan, but was told this was not an option.  I asked what else I could do in the meantime to help Chloe until I'm able to  raise the money for her surgery.  The Veterinarian prescribed an oral anti-inflammatory medicine which he explained will help Chloe with her pain.  Please help us "Save Chloe's Life"!  My family and I are heartbroken and are doing everything we can to find the resources for the surgery.  I even took a second job, and I'm working 18 hours a day, but time is of the essence!  We greatly appreciate any financial donation, and for those who can't donate any money, then I kindly ask that keep our sweet Chloe in your prayers! My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and if Chloe could speak, I know she would tell you how grateful she is for opening your hearts and saving her life!
