Patch has partnered with GoFundMe, a crowdfunding website that helps people raise money for charity or specific needs. Each week, Manalapan Patch will be featuring a different local GoFundMe campaign in need of donations - and this week we are featuring Shadow, a 10-year-old dog who needs a knee replacement.
Shadow, who is owned by Jacob Cohen of Englishtown, has suffered a torn ACL and is in need of a new knee. The surgery costs about $6,000, but Cohen is looking to raise only $3,000 on GoFundMe to help fund the surgery. Cohen said that his family cannot afford the whole cost of the surgery and if the money is not raised Shadow will be put to sleep.
Cohen originally launched the campaign on GoFundMe in August, but he told Patch this week that his family is still looking to raise the money for Shadow's surgery. Right now, Cohen has only raised $165 for Shadow and has a long way to go to reach his $3,000 goal to save his dog’s life.
Any type of donation is appreciated. To donate to Shadow, click here:http://www.gofundme.com/Save-my-dog-Shadow
