This is different, and I could do GoFundMe but that doesn’t feel right, so here goes.
One of our dogs tore a ligament in her back leg while chasing a ball a few weeks ago. She’s just shy of 7 and can’t walk on it, so needs surgery – it’s a Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (I know there will be a plate and screws), almost $3K worth. The vet recommended a clinic in another town because a: Osa is a big dog, and b: he’s cheaper than almost every other vet. So the surgery is set for the 28th, and then there’s…get this…8 weeks of physical therapy on our end that needs to be done for her. Wow.
I’m still unemployed and my guy will forever be on disability, so this hits a bit hard. GoFundMe makes me uncomfortable because, well, I don’t really know. It just does. So what I thought was that if I could do 30-minute sessions for the donation of $10-$15 each, I could raise money AND help others at the same time. That feels right.
So if you’re interested in helping Osa and yourself, either use this PayPal link or you can Venmo me to donate, put your email address in the notes so I can contact you, and we’ll get things set up! You can have the session at a later date if you’d like, obviously,
ETA: it’s come to my attention that not everyone would like a session: it’s ok to donate without that as part of it! Just put an upside down smiley 🙃 in the notes and that will tell me not to contact you.
Thank you for all the wishes and donations so far!!
