Help Sammy The Shiba

After work, I took out my 7 year old shiba named Sammy for our last walk of 4 for the day, and managed to escape his harness for the first time in years. He went missing for 25 minutes or so. When I found him, a police officer and a gentleman with his dog were over Sammy laying on the sidewalk who's foot was dangling from his leg. We're pretty sure a car hit him from the looks of the break, but he was safe and rushed to the hospital where he stayed the night, and was to be picked up very early in the morning for his immediate surgery to put a plate in to heal the bone.
I am having an incredibly difficult year this year and it's only 12 days in.. We (Sam and I) have moved to an even smaller apartment to save over $400 a month on rent, and now no matter what else happens this year, even with the immense rent decrease, 2015 will be much more expensive than 2014 because of this one horrible accident I am incredibly guilty for. The initial hospital fee was $1200, and the required surgery is nearing $4600. We barely had enough to pay the first bill, but the donations are for the plate they will be putting in, anesthesia, the medications, hospital stays, several check ups, and x-rays.
I did not want this for my dog, and he is everything to me. Sammy did not ask to have a life like this, and it is not an option to not go through with the surgery. If you cannot donate, but you do have a pet, please give them a tight squeeze for me as a contribution.
