BRIDGEPORT - A dog that was hit by a car and found badly hurt on I-95 in Bridgeport Monday is getting surgery today thanks to a good Samaritan and the generosity of News 12 Connecticut viewers.
The dog is being treated at the VCA Shoreline Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center in Shelton, where employees say a Staffordshire Terrier was brought in after he was attacked by a dog and then hit by a car near exit 30.
They say he is currently undergoing surgery for a fractured pelvis.
Some good Samaritans brought the dog to the center, but say they do not know who its owners are.
The staff started a GoFundMe account called 'Save our Staffie,' and has raised over $8,000 to cover the cost of the surgery and the rehabilitation needed after surgery.
