Violet Needs X-rays!

$1,272 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 60 people in 6 months
Hi Friends! 
A few years ago, you all helped me buy Violet from a farm and save her from slaughter. For that, I am eternally grateful! But now I need your help once again. 
You may have seen on my social media that Violet has been “off her hind legs” for a few weeks now. We’ve had a vet out to see her several times, but none of the medications we’ve given her (anti-inflammatories, steroids, antibiotics) have helped.
Our next step is to transport her to the large animal facility at New Bolton for scans of her spine and hind legs. This may result in her needing surgery, so I will update our goal amount accordingly. She will have to stay at least a couple of nights at the center as well. 
I know it may seem silly to some to be raising so much money for a pig, but you all know how important Violet is to me! The fact that she is only five, and is still in good spirits with a healthy appetite means that she hasn’t given up, and neither can I!
Thank you so much in advance for donating and sharing. Anyone who donates $10 or more will be mailed a Polaroid of our sweet girl, so please email me your mailing address at: shayla.alura@gmail.com

If you’ve been following Violet’s story on social media, you may have seen that I had to put her down today.
The doctors said that even if they attempted to fix all of her spinal issues, she would still never walk again.
I hope you understand that I did not want to spend my final moments with her taking Polaroids, but I will still send everyone a regular photo of our sweet girl. Please send me your mailing address if you haven’t already.
Thank you so much for making it possible to have these scans done, hopefully the postmortem will provide us some explanations.

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated! I am so anxious to get Violet checked into New Bolton Center Monday night, and see the results of her scans on Tuesday!
Please remember to message or email (shayla.alura@gmail.com) me your mailing address so that I can get you a Polaroid of our sweet girl!
