Rescue dog medical fund

On Thanksgiving 2016 Kelly and Kurt Benzel saved the life of Rocco a white pit bull mix. Rocco was for "sale" on facebook. In the pictures of him for "sale" he was clearly neglected and left outside without proper shelter and water, he also had on a harness that was way to small. Kelly told the owner she would take him. When Kelly got Rocco home and took off his harness she discovered a 6" gash in his stomach. Rocco was taken to the animal hospital and put on lots of antibiotics and pain meds. He's currently wrapped up to keep the gash shut and his insides where they belong. He needs to be seen 5-7 times in the next week and after that is when he gets sown up. So far the bill is over a $1,000. Kelly and Kurt don't have the money to afford This huge bill, exspecially over the holiday season. Donations would be greatly appreciated to help pay the bill. Thank you and Happy holidays.
