Help Rebuild Caddy's Knees

A Massapequa dog named Caddy is looking for the community's help in funding an operation to fix tears in his rear legs.

Caddy's owner Justin Simms started the campaign to raise $8,000. Thus far, there's been 22 donations totaling $955.

The page reads:

"Hey Everyone! 

My Name is Caddy! I'm 3, but I act like I'm a puppy. Daddy rescued me from a Cadillac on a scorching summer day in August 3 years ago, that's how I got my name.

Although I want to be able to play professional soccer, I can't because I have two torn cruciate ligaments in my rear legs. Think of it as two torn ACL's. My injury hasn't really hurt my spirits yet, and I still try to chase squirrels, but I just can't jump like I used to. There's also an issue with stairs...

Anyway, I'm trying to raise money to get the TPLO surgery to fix it, but it's super expensive. Maybe you can help?"
