I am raising funds for my neighbor’s dog Hachi. He is a two year olf Pitbull mix who is loving, sweet, playful and full of life. Believe me when I say I never thought I would love a Pitbull of all breeds! His personality won me over from day one.

 As my neighbors have their hands full with a new baby and full time jobs, I often take Hachi to the park and for walks to help out, plus I love his company. In the last month, I have noticed that his back legs and hips are causing him to limp and sometimes cause him to fall and roll when he is playing with the other dogs,  and even when we are simply on a walk. Recently, his owner took him to the vet, who informed him that Hachi was born with a deformity in his knee that is causing him to have problems and that is will more than likely get worse as time goes by. My heart breaks at the thought that he could become lame, when surgery could help correct this. As my neighbors can’t afford the surgery, I am trying to help them out by creating this fundraiser. They don't know I am doing this, and I am hoping to surprise them with the funds when we raise $2,500, which is the estimated amount it costs for the surgery. As anyone who owns pets knows, surgery is never easy or cheap!

As I mentioned earlier, Hachi loves to run like the wind at the dog park (the Lettie Towles Dog Park in Ocala, formerly the Millenium Dog Park) and chase the other dogs, but his knee is causing him to have an increasingly hard time with this, and he needs to stop and lay down more frequently. Even the other patrons of the park are noticing how he is limping badly after playing and having to rest in mid play. He deserves to be healthy and enjoy his life, so I am asking folks to donate $1.00, or any amount you choose, to help raise money. I will be putting a link on my home page for Paypal where people can donate. I know there are many scams out there and you may be hesitant, so I am asking my friends to write some testimonies of my personality for people to read to make them feel more at ease. I am hoping to run a shelter for cats someday because I love animals and want the best for them.

Thank you so much for simply reading about Hachi. If you don’t want to donate, could you please help by passing this along to others to make them aware of Hachi’s situation? He and I really appreciate it!

Follow his progress on my Facebook page and see pictures and videos of him.

 

Thank you ahead of time,
