One month ago, French Fry could barely stand, today, he is recovering from surgery – thanks in part to the community of Jamaica Plain and beyond.
Jenn and Chris Lawson’s Springer-lab mix, French Fry, was in need of an expensive surgery after sustaining a knee injury last summer. Meghann Martin, a friend of the Lawsons, started a GoFundMe site asking for donations from the community, setting the goal at $3,500, the cost of the surgery.
Through the site, the family received $2,765 from 72 people in 16 days, which was enough for the surgery.
The South Huntington Avenue family is grateful their dog got the gift of movement this holiday season.
“We got donations from people all over the world who helped us to raise over $2,700! This was all really quite something!” Jenn Lawson wrote in an email to Jamaica Plain Patch.
