Please help us defray the cost of adopting this dog. :-)  Details below.

For the last several weeks, a severely malnourished and skittish white and brown pit bull was roaming the neighborhood. For awhile, she wouldn't let anyone near her. Eventually, she warmed up to a few of the kids and even tried to follow them onto the school bus. She slept on the porch of our daughter's friend, because she attached to her so well. Eventually, she wandered into our yard we provided her with fresh water and some chicken. Using her Subway sandwich, my wife lured her in. We gave her a shower, removed 3 ticks (and as many fleas as we could locate) and provided her a kennel for the night. The next morning, we took her to First Coast No More Homeless Pets where we learned she had been spayed, but not microchipped. We paid for her vaccines (rabies/distemper) and learned she has heartworms. The vet fee was nearly $100. We took her to Petsmart for a collar and leash. We also bought some high-protein/high-fat food to get her weight up, because she is so thin (her ribs protrude badly). Another $100.  We still need a kennel for her ($50?) and to pay for heartworm treatment ($250+). Any help is appreciated, as we had ZERO plans to adopt a new pet. She got our hearts, though. Thank you for your help.
