EMERGENCY HELP NEEDED FOR TODO! The longer we wait, the less of a chance Todo has. :(
Todo is a tiny five-pound, eight-year-old Chihuahua whom we pulled from Brooklyn ACC less than two weeks ago when one of our regular fosters stepped up for him. He's a frail little boy, obviously neglected by his previous owners, and tossed out when he became older and he was of no use for them anymore.
He was so shy and scared, but we took him out of that steel cage into the warm home of one of our dedicated fosters, where she's nursed him, and fed him and showed him how to be little puppy again.
During the past few days, Todo has started acting very strange. He'd first fall over and walk crooked, then eventually could no longer stand up anymore.
The foster rushed him to our vet's who's determined that he must have fallen or been hit very hard on the neck/head shortly before he ended up at the shelter; it's heart-breaking to imagine who would hurt a little dog like Todo... Because of this, he has a slipped disc and fracture in his neck, which has gotten worse over time.
To determine what exactly is going on, he needs an MRI, which is almost a curse word in rescue, for it is awfully expensive.
Once he had the MRI, he'll need surgery to correct whatever is wrong.
He was such a lively guy, so sweet and mini, and we can't stand the thought of him not getting better for a lack of money; we have contacted countless area vets who offer a rescue discount, but we're looking at somewhere between $3,500 and $4,000 that we will have to spend on his medical care, which is an amount we simply cannot afford. :(
Please help us cover these unforeseen expenses and get Todo better!
