The Story

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!

*** UPDATE ON TODO 3/24/13***
Todo's surgery went well,he's resting comfortably and he's no longer in pain.
It's still impossible to tell whether he'll be able to walk again. He's leaving the hospital tomorrow, and going home with Mary and Tom. Among other special needs pooches, he'll be sharing his foster home with our immobile and blind, yet very happy Chihuahua, Gabe a/k/a Biggie. :)
Please keep sharing his fundraiser link. We have to pay $3,000 tomorrow when he leaves the hospital. Thank you.

*** UPDATE ON TODO ***
Todo is in surgery right now. He has three herniated discs, and a 60% chance that he'll be able to walk after the surgery. If he cannot, he will need a little wheelchair. Either way, once he's released, he'll move in with Bonny and Gabe's foster mom, Mary because he'll need to be closer to the vet's office.
We need to pay a minimum of $3,000 the second Todo is released; so far, we have been able to raise a little less than half of it. Please help us with this unforeseen medical expense. We cannot do it without your help. Thank you.
