My dog has a broken back...

Hey all, I have never given a shout out for help before but I find myself in financial distress.... Every little bit will help. If possible please forward Hugo's message on to others you think might be able to help.
Thanks everyone,
Chris

Here is his letter.
https://www.gofundme.com/hugoboy

My name is Hugo. I am an eight year old beagle who was adopted by my parents in 2010 from Shelter From the Storm. I am a loving, silly and mischievous pup at heart. I love long trips to my favorite dog parks, playing tug-of-war, and finding all sorts of great smells. I was following a great smell on Wednesday October 14 and snuck out of my parents' backyard. I crossed a busy street and was hit by a truck. I am now in intensive care and need surgery for my broken back. I am hanging in there but I need your help for my surgery, so that I can walk again and go back and run in my favorite parks with my adopted brothers.

Will you please help a beagle in need! <3

Love,
Hugo

I'm trying to share this on my FB page, but nothing happens when I click the share buttons.
Do you know what the problem might be?

Is this your dog Chris?

Can I use paypal? I can't see that option.
The only thing available to me is to fill out credit card info.

Beagles are such sweet critters but they just can't resist roaming. Our first pet growing up was a very lovable one named Daisy.

Hi all! Thanks for helping out - yeah its my dog. For some reason gofundme stopped using paypal :(

Share should work.... worked ok on my wifes account and a few others shared it out no problem still getting nowhere?

Hugo had his surgery and is recovering well. he has regained some motor control of his hind legs already.

Hey all!
Folks have been asking about sending paypal contributions. I might lose it if you dont also send me a PM so I know about it or it will get swept up in all my other paypal transactions.

So here is my thought - if you visit my shop and make purchases of my ecardmodels exclusives kits I will donate all proceeds for this month (and next) to Hugo's fund. Here is a direct link to the kits that can be used for these donations. This way you can get a couple kits to build too!

Ecardmodels exclusives

Thanks all!
Chris

And buy one (or more) of my models [Dave Winfield] from ecardmodels

all proceeds of all my sales this month (October) are donated to help Hugo.
In other words, Chris, please do not pay me for October sales
and please accept it as my small donation.

Okay, so I may not be the biggest fan of Cats
...but when it comes to Dogs
...and Horses...
...and any animals in distress, period...
I am always wanting to help in any way I can.

(Chris) I'm so glad Hugo survived his accident and you went ahead with the surgery to help him.
And to see him recovering is wonderful and heartbreaking all at the same time.
