Back story:
Ewok is a beautiful, sweet, and loving dog. He was one of five feral puppies we rescued in 2014. They were living beneath an abandoned house across the street from us. We found great homes for his three siblings. One of his sisters went to a vet tech, and two other sisters went to a family to work as therapy dogs for children with disabilities. We decided we would keep the two brothers Ewok and Josey. It was one of the best decisions we've ever made. The two are best friends. When they aren't playing they are cuddling and cleaning each other. They even share food and toys!

Where they need your help:
Due to rough playing with his brother Josey, Ewok's right rear cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) was ruptured. This ligament serves a similar function to the ACL in humans and is a common sports injury. The vet believes it is ruptured (completely torn) due to the movement of the joint, but he won't be 100% certain until surgery, as x-rays don't show ligaments. Estimated surgery costs for an extracapsular lateral suture are near $2,000, if there aren't any complications. With the assistance of CreditCare, we should be able to afford half of this amount. This is why we are only asking for $1,000.

Also, any money raised that exceeds the total cost of the surgery, will be donated to help others pay for vet care for other dogs in need!

When will the surgery happen?:
This depends on a couple factors.
1) How this crowd sourcing adventure goes!
2) I work at a grocery store and am currently getting 12hrs./wk. They love me there, and I've spoken to them about increasing my hours. However, they have recently cut hours throughout the whole store. BUT by making some cuts (and with your assistance) we are hoping to be financially able to within the next few weeks.

Hey friends please consider helping this sweet boy out!! He had a crazy start in life but he was lucky when he met my friend Sarah. She and her husband took in Ewok and his siblings. She kept Ewok and one of his brothers. Money is tight and Ewok has to have surgery for an injury. Sarah has never asked for help but they need $1,000 to cover the $2,000 surgery cost (they have $1,000 themselves) and she is reaching out to friends and animal lovers for a little help. Every bit helps!! And if you can't make a donation please share Ewoks story. 2 years ago
