Unhappy Boxer and Family in need :(

if im breaking rules sorry ill delete it.




2012 was a rough year. We’ve paid over 4000+ in vet bills just in these last two years. My first pup, a 2 year old boxer, had a catastrophic heart attack at only 2 years old. His heart couldn’t go on regardless of how much we tried saving him. He passed away in my arms as I was running into the emergency room. Roughly, about 8 months later, my female boxer was really sad and depressed all the time and had slowed down. We then learned that she had been diagnosed with early stage of hip Dysplasia, quickly we looked for the best possible way to aid her pain and get her back to 100%. We had a procedure done, that cost us 2500 dollars, called Stem Cell Regenerative Therapy. She showed great improvements and her pain was gone, the stem cells had done their job. She was getting ready to start her rehabilitation therapy to get her muscle growing back again and get her back in shape, and that was going to cost us another 1200 dollars. Out of nowhere she started limping in her right hind leg. Just this last week we found out that she had torn both Cruciate ligaments in both knees (ACL Tear). Now she needs surgeries in her in both of her knees that are going to cost
3800 dollars total plus rehabilitation.Recently, my job has slowed down a lot. I hardly get by with rent and still paying off these vet bills that just have been racking up and now we need to have these procedures done and we are completely drained credit and savings both I’m not asking for much and I never ask for any help, but I’m in desperate need for my dog’s wellbeing. All I want is for them to live a normal and happy life. If anyone can donate anything at all, anything is appreciated; I would greatly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. My dogs are like my kids I will die for them

any kind of donation is a good one from Cents to a Dollar

all info is here below

I would register a Chipin account. Maybe say that all funds go directly to your vet and provide your vets info. Its sad but now a days people are very cautious, they like to be able to verify where their money is going.

I wish you all the best.

I agree with Kari, a chipin account going to the vet will be helpful for people who are cautious.

Maybe see if your vet will take direct payments on account to put towards the surgery. I've been a member here for several years and am very involved in rescue, but I still make that option available if I solicit donations for people who might want to help but don't know me that well. My vet accepts the payments as a credit on my account and that is then applied toward any future vet bills. Most vets are willing to do this if you set it up with them in advance.

Hope that helps.
