help with Toby’s patella surgery

Hello, my name is Jinhee. I am a volunteer of Korean Paws Rescue, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to saving Korean dogs and finding their forever homes in the US.

Toby was the one I helped before I joined the Korean Paws Rescue.

Toby is 3 years old Chihuahua mix. He was abandoned at a street and rescued by Areumdanbi, a Korean Rescue group, at the high-kill hospital-shelter of Ulsan, Korea on April 2019 before the euthanasia. He had been treated for the Heart worm after being rescued. The rescuer has tried hard to find an adopter for him at Korea, unfortunately he had to stay at a paid shelter for 6 months without an adopter or foster.
So I helped Toby to be adopted at USA. He flew to USA on October 2019. He had to stay at several fosters' houses almost 8 months until We finally found a great home for him. However we realized the patella issue on his both legs had been developed during his stay at fosters' house. The vet said he had Stage 3 out of 4, the surgery was only fix, the estimate was around $3000 and the sooner it was done the less arthritis he would get. The surgery is scheduled on Jan 7th, 2021.

If you can contribute anything, we would be so grateful. Thanks so much for taking the time to read about Toby and all your support!
