An online campaign dedicated to raising money for an urn for the ashes of a dog that assisted a hearing-impaired Forest Hills resident has, so far, raised $400.

Forest Hills' Spring Tobet created a GoFundMe page titled "Kingston's Fundraiser," with the goal of raising a total $2,800. So far, 12 people have donated to the fund.

The page reads:

Kingston was a 5-year-old American Cocker Spaniel and a service dog for me as I am hearing impaired. Kingston taught me how to love, be kind and patient to everyone.

On Dec. 27, he died of aggressive liver cancer. First time I took him I was able to pay, but now I'm struggling [to pay] the cremation bill. The vet was never able to cure him and still charges people an expensive amount and I'm baffled. 

I was also charged to just sit in the room with my dog to say goodbye and, to this day, I can't stop crying over him. It's the hardest thing in the world to lose a companion you've bonded with. I'm a full-time college student and really need to find someone with an open heart and help support the bills. 

Kingston was a lovable dog and was loved by many people. I lost my best friend and he was the first dog I ever owned. I understand the economy is bad and everyone is tight, any little thing will help and your support is much appreciated.
