buddy1On Thursday night, the Yarbrough family, found their four-month-old dog Buddy on the front porch of their California home. Something was clearly wrong with Buddy. Buddy usually stays in the backyard and it was obvious to them that he was in pain. A visit to the vet revealed he had a broken leg and would need surgery costing $3700.

The Yarbough’s don’t have that kind of money to spend on the surgery. When the family sat down to try to figure out what to do their two young daughters Kali and Lily suggested a lemonade stand to raise the funds for Buddy’s surgery.

On Sunday, the family, led by 11-year-old Kali and six-year-old Lily, set up a lemonade stand. They raised $520 to put towards Buddy’s surgery. Their mother, Amber Yarbrough, admitted “I know we’re not going to raise $3700 today but any little bit will help.” If you would like to help Buddy and the Yarbrough family you can contact them via email at [email protected]
