On Saturday in South Florida, a dog was hit by a car, and a woman passing by decided to stop and help. Now the dog is facing a lot of medical bills and surgery, and this good Samaritan reached out for help from the public to save this poor dog.

Cheryl Linton-Robinson was driving when she notice the injured dog on the side of the road.  She pulled over and got out of her vehicle to assess the situation.  Apparently the Lab mix had been struck by a car, and Cheryl knew she had to act fast.

She rushed the injured dog to Saint Francis Animal Hospital in Hollywood, Florida.  After many tests and x-rays, it was determined that the dog’s pelvis was all but totally crushed.  The injured Lab was not chipped, and owners have not been able to be located up to this point.

Cheryl says that the surgery that needs to be performed as soon as possible.  A bone specialist will have to be called in.  Estimates put the medical bills up around $4,000 and the dog does not have a lot of time.  According to policy, the hospital can only hold him for 24 hours.

“They can only keep him 24 hours so time is of the essence… Please help us get the word out, or this dog will be put to sleep by 8 p.m. tonight,” said Cheryl.

As of now, the dog no longer faces euthanasia.  Enough money has been raised, and the surgeries are scheduled for later today.  Keep checking our webpage and Facebook for more information as it is received.

Cheryl is very thankful to the people that helped make things happen, and is praising medical staff at the animal hospital for doing such a great job caring for this unfortunate dog.

“St. Francis Emergency Animal Hospital is a 24 hour pet hospital. I’ve taken my own pets there on occasion. They have a dedicated staff of animal lovers. When I pulled up yesterday, they gingerly lifted this dog out of my back seat and took such good care of him,” she said.
