Fundraiser for Medical Care for Cindy

Hi Everyone, my name is Cindy and I need some help. I'm not even 18 months old and I have a bad leg. I went to the Vet and they decided my leg issue was too bad to fix so they need to "amphutate" it. They said I'll hurt for a while but that once I'm recovered I'll be able to run and jump and play - that even with only 3 legs I'll have a great life! Once I'm recovered then I can look for a home of my very own. I heard the humans talking about this thing called "money" and it's going to take about $2,000 to do the operation. They said I'm worth it and that we need to find some. So I'm hijacking the computer while the humans are talking to see if you guys can help me find some. I want to be able to play like all the other greys so please donate to help me get better. All the little bits really add up and I'll be forever grateful! Please click here to help me and go to our Facebook page.

PS If we get more than we need for my surgery then the extra green stuff will go to help my other friends here who have medical issues too. Like my buddy Fallon - he's being treated for these nasty heartworms. Ew, worms on the inside!

If you can't donate please share so more people can see me. Kisses Cindy
