It’s been more than two weeks since Al Stewart, an ABC Supply employee in Doraville, Ga., saw a puppy tossed out of a moving car in front of his workplace. The Daschund-Chihuahua mix was approximately nine weeks old, and before Stewart could get to it, the puppy was hit by a car.
“It happened right as Al was pulling into the parking lot,” reassistant store manager Trey Couch told Home Channel News. “The dog just went flying out of the [vehicle’s] door.”
Stewart brought the badly injured puppy into the store, and another employee, Ken Hayes, called his wife. Jennifer Hayes rushed the dog to a veterinary hospital and agreed to pay for surgery to fix its leg. The bill came to more than $1,400, according to Couch.
That’s when the fundraising began, starting with a Facebook page and then a website called Chipin.com. Approximately $2,100 was collected for the puppy, who is recovering nicely.
Couch said he didn’t think the dog has been named yet.
