Velvet's double TPLO surgery

This is Velvet, she’s a 5 year old chocolate lab and my very best friend. We recently got the news that Velvet requires TPLO surgery, as she has torn her cranial cruciate ligament.

If you’ve had the pleasure of meeting Velvet, you know that she is such a loving dog with such high energy! And if you know me, you know how important Velvet is to me, and how much I love my little girl. We just want to be able to the most we can for her, make her comfortable again.

We are trying to raise the funds for the surgery so we can get her on the road to recovery, get Velvet back to her regular self!

Estimated costs for surgery, meds, check-ups (not even including rehab) is $5000. Any amount you could spare would bring me that much closer to having my best friend back to her loving energetic self. Every dollar counts, even if its only $1! But if you can't help us financially, please share our story and donate your positive vibes and thoughts as we will need them!

Velvet wants to thank everyone who took the time to read this, donate or even just shared! <3
