Surgery For Frankie

Frankie Malone (our dachshund puppy) was involved in a Hit & run accident today 6/11/17 and we are now at R.I.V.E.R. In Chattanooga, TN. He has a broken hip, is bleeding internally, and is in anaphylactic shock. His injuries are life threatening and this case is time sensitive. They have already performed many tests and are currently running an ultrasound to identify exactly where the bleeding is coming from. The orthopedic surgeon will be in first thing in the morning to evaluate his hip and discuss surgery options. They have already told us he will also need to have some type of surgery to stop the internal bleeding, whether it's from his spleen, liver, etc.  Both of the surgeries estimate to be any between $2,000-3,500 each, and that is not including any of the tests that they have already performed. We just paid $875 for them to keep him overnight and continue his fluids. We are praying that nothing else happens (like needing a blood transfusion) before the surgeon gets there in the morning.
I would normally never pull the single mom card, but I am desperate right now. I do the best I can to get my bills paid each month and keep food on the table for my son and I, and I don't have this kind of money laying around. And unfortunately I do not qualify for Carecredit. They need the money up front or I will have to have him euthanized.
I am asking for this amount of money because it is the bare minimum we are going to have to pay to help get Frankie the surgeries that he needs to survive and to not live in extreme pain for the rest of his life. If, by chance, something goes wrong during surgery and God forbid Frankie passes away, I will donate every dollar to our local No-kill shelters in North GA and Chattanooga, Mckamey Animal Center, and anywhere else that will accept cash donations. 
Please help us save our sweet Frankie.
