I have a 2 year-old terrier named Charlie that has a tear in his diaphragm that's causing his organs to move up into his chest cavity obstructing his breathing. I took him to a specialist that says the operation would cost $2000. My husband is on disability and I work at LaQuinta here in Baytown, Texas. We really need some help!! Charlie is like our child to us. Please find it in your heart to help Charlie. Sincerely, Elizabet Dorlac
