Can you help Gizmo Get surgery?

Gizmo’s WordPress Site http://surgeryforgizmo.wordpress.com/

Gizmo is a 13-year-old dog of indeterminate heritage (her
veterinarian in Washington used to call her the world’s largest
papillion).  She is a rescue dog from the Animal Care and Control
in San Francisco, CA.  When I first got her in December of 1996, it was
estimated that she was about one, and I was told that she was found in
an abusive situation where she had been hit, kicked, and threatened
with death.

Gizmo has been a wonderful companion for the past 12 years.  We’ve
since moved from San Francisco to Everett, Washington, back to San
Francisco for a brief stay, and we now reside in Kentucky.  I’m a
student pursuing my bachelor’s degree in English, as well as a
part-time instructor at the college I attend.  As such, my funds are
low, particularly at this time of the year when the summer semester is
almost over and the fall semester is a month away.

On Thursday, July 16, 2009, I took Gizmo to her veternarian because
the fatty tumor she has had for a couple of years had become infected. 
The vet informed me that the tumor is in need of removal, and then she
handed me the bill.  The low estimate for the surgery (and related
costs, such as x-rays, biopsy, post-surgical pain management, and
surgery assessment) is $698.25 US and the high estimate (assuming that
surgery lasts more than 30 minutes) is $865.25 US.  The wording of the
estimate allows for a 15% rate of error, which means that the surgery
could go as high as $995.25 US.

I simply can’t cover that amount of money in the time needed  She
currently has a two week supply of antibiotics, and the veterinarian
believes that she needs to have the surgery by the end of the two week
period.  That means she needs to have her surgery around August 1, 2009.

Had this happened in November, it would be a different story, but it
was a struggle to pay the $136 I’ve put out this week for care.  I’m
not someone who finds it easy to accept help, especially monetary, but
I love my dog, and I am determined to help her however I can.

I’ve set up a PayPal account specifically for her surgery costs. 
Please donate whatever you can.  Any help is appreciated.  If you are
unable to donate, please forward this url to someone who may be able to

I will check the PayPal account daily, and I will shut it down the
moment I have enough to get Gizmo the surgery she needs.  I’m not here
to profit from the generosity of others.  I just want my dog to be
well.  I had to put one of my cats to sleep six months ago, and I’m not
ready to lose another, especially when her problem is one that can be
