Dog who survived being hit by car on I-95 gets 2nd set of surgeries
Maddie the dog, who survived being struck by a car on Interstate 95 in Westport two months ago, is making a steady recovery, officials say.
Since the May 17 accident, donations have poured in to cover the abandoned pooch's medical care. The latest procedures, performed this week, were surgery on her eye and spaying.
Veterinarians are also performing follow-up X-rays on her leg to see how it is healing after the car shattered her femur.
A driver saw Maddie on the side of the I-95 and drove her to Schulhof Animal Hospital.
The nonprofit group Westport Animal Shelter Advocates, also known as WASA, has raised about $5,800 for Maddie's care through donations and selling T-shirts with her face on them.
They anticipate her total costs to be between $6,000 and $7,000.
Officials there estimate she needs about two more weeks of recovery before she can move on to a foster home -- or a forever home.
A workout fundraiser will be held for Maddie this weekend at Punch Kettlebell Gym in Norwalk.
