Please help, donate
My four year old Jack Russell Terrier, Tucker, unfortunately has cataracts. As many of you may know, the breed is well known for their tremendous amount of energy. My Tucker, like many Terriers, loves to play fetch especially with tennis balls. But his worsening eyes are preventing him from his favorite activity because he no longer is able to see the ball.

I, Vickie Fan, beseech you fellow dog lovers to help Tucker by donating to help pay for very expensive surgery costs.
Every little bit helps.
Thank you.

Here are some photos of him:

I am hoping that people would help me through donation.

I am not a scammer. I'll be honest, I am just a little desperate. My name is Vickie Fan, I am 21 and live in Compton, California. I am a full time student and trying to be a full time worker at my part time job in order to make enough hours to obtain more money to pay for my dogs surgery.
I figured a dog message board would be a good place to find help because I assume that people here love dogs as much as I do. My cell phone is filled with hundreds of pictures of my two dogs, Tuffie and Tucker. I have come to realize that for the rest of my entire life I will own at least one dog. They are my children and unfortunately I am in no place to own children because I can't cover my Tucker's surgery costs. The estimate I got from the vet yesterday is between $5,376.00 and $7,445.00. (I can scan this and show you if you want proof). Yes, of course, I am going to use my student loans but that still will only cover for half of it.

I'm not asking for a lot of money. Maybe just 25 or 50 cents. I'm sorry if I wasn't detailed enough before. I just figured people were more likely to read it and respond if the story was not too long.

Tucker s 4 years old and he love to play fetch but he can't anymore. When I take him to the dog park I can only roll the ball along the ground within 3 feet of him and I have to make sure that he can hear it. This is all just for his sake.

If anyone wants to see a couple videos of Tucker you can either go to the facebook group my boyfriend has made for Tucker at: Tucker's Cataract Surgery Support Group | Facebook

or click here: YouTube - Tucker annoying Tuffie
There should be a link on the side to lead to the other video.

I'm sorry the videos are of Tucker when he was a pup and don't have sound. I'm working on making some more (with sound).

Cataracts are hardly life threatening. Your dog will get along fine without his full vision.

Why don't you use carecredit.com and pay for it yourself, since this is an ELECTIVE surgery.

I know this is an old thread and the person is not likely to come back. But this is the very reason that dogs (other than rescues) should be purchased from a rep. breeder that offers a guarantee longer than 2 yrs. This way this person could go back to the breeder and at least get their purchase price back for the surgery..........
