We found this big fella on the side of the highway with a broken front leg. He's a ~1 year old Great Pyrenees with great big eyes and a great love for snuggling. I am a veterinarian and in my spare time I try to help the many dogs and cats in need that I come across.  

Normally my fiance (who is amazing and supports my craziness) and I do the surgeries ourselves after-hours at the clinic where I work to keep the expense bearable.  However, because George is so huge he will need a metal plate to support the break while it heals. We have to call in a surgeon and even with a generous discount it will cost >$2,000.  We have never had to ask for help before, but we want George to have the life that he deserves and this surgery is crucial for that.  

Somewhere out there is a couch (an ENTIRE couch) that needs his warmth and a heart with a George-sized hole in it.  Please help us get him fixed up so we can find him a forever home.  We'll all be massively grateful.

If you feel more comfortable donating directly to the hospital, we have set up a fund for him at Texas Veterinary Hospital, 3493 Fredericksburg Rd, San Antonio, Texas 78201.  You can contact the hospital at (210)732-1981 and donate to the "George" fund!

Thank you SO much!!!
