General Manager of Bar Louie Kirkwood Andy Palmisano is determined to give his puppy the best care regardless of the cost.
Palmisano's German bred rottweiler puppy Kujo will have to undergo knee surgery on both of her back legs soon. The operations total $5,500.
When Palmisano's friends found out about Kujo's situation, they helped him put out a call for assistance on GiveForward, a crowdsourcing site for medical and other causes.
Since Kujo's story went live, the pup has received $980 toward the $5,500 goal. The online fundraiser ends March 20.
"I appreciate any support thrown our way in order to get this pup back to 100 percent," Palmisano writes on GiveForward.
Donations for Kujo have ranged from $25 to $500 with encouraging words like:
- "Good luck my friend. Get well soon so we can get back to chasing down those bucks!! Woof!! Woof!!"
- "We love you, Hope everything works out the best way possible. We give you a lot of credit Andy, many people wouldn't pay for such a thing! We hope this helps a little. Take care buddy, we'll be thinking of you guys!"
- "Hope Kujo gets back to 100% ASAP!"
