Mowing Lawns For Dog’s Hip Surgery

DavidDavid, a 3-year-old Alaskan malamute and German shepherd mix, needs a hip replacement surgery and it costs $8,000. His owner, a disabled Army veteran, has been trying to raise funds for David’s surgery by mowing lawns for $10. He also has been receiving donations from generous people after seeing his story and his commitment and love for David, his dog and his best friend.

    hope this is legit…am sending a donation. this man is in michigan, according to the article. michigan has the worst economy in the country. he may not get many donations from that area.

    add to my post above…the man only received one offer to cut a lawn and the vet says the dog will have to be put down if he cannot have the surgery. looks like the man and dog need a lot of help.

    I am sending a donation via regular mail. Do we know if he is set up to accept online donations?

    lisa clay, only saw an address and phone # in the article. what seems so important here is this disabled man depends on this dog for most of his daily activities. uses him as a service dog. the dog actually uses his mouth to lift the man’s foot onto his stairs, etc. and to boot…the dog only has one eye. sent him a note with my donation telling him i saw his story on the itchmo site. hope others here can help too.

    I’ll be mailing my donation tomorrow.

    You’d think there would be programs to help in these situations. Something the VA could help with at least.
