Riley Monster Double ACL Tear

First off, thank you for taking the time to read this. 

If you know who we are, you know how much we love our Riley Monster, and how our lives lined up perfectly to bring her into our home.

If you don't know us, I'll give you a brief introduction into the best years of our life. Roughly 2 years ago, I walked into the local pound and fell in love with a furball. In the two months since she had been born, she was stuck in a dog kennel and left outside in the middle of winter. Thankfully she was rescued and happened to be at the pound that day. After a week of waiting to see if they would choose us to love her, Riley became ours.  Riley Monster is the absolute joy of our lives.

(Baby Riley the day we brought her home) 

Now at 2 years old and 90lbs, she is the most kind, gently, and loving Monster we've ever met. She is also the most active, which brings us to our current position.

Riley has torn her ACL in BOTH of her back legs. Requiring surgery on both of them. As a military family in our first home, in CA, 3000 miles away from our family in MD, $7500 is really a hit in the gut.

Riley will be getting surgery on her right knee on October 29, 2014, and after a few weeks of rehab, will be back in the operating room again for surgery on her left knee. 

(Our fully grown Riley Monster)

Even if we only make a $1 from this campaign, it will seriously mean the world to us, and we will definetly make sure that we send you a present from Riley and she will promise to love you forever. 

We just want to be able to make our Riley Monster pain-free.

Riley says THANK YOU!
