Hop-a-long dog needs a new leg

Hopalong Cassidy needs a new leg and local rescue group Save the Pets is raising money for the pup's surgery.

According to the video information on YouTube, "A woman who lives in Silverton found Cassidy dodging traffic on Interstate5! She put him on Craigslist and a man in Albany took Cassidy to foster him so that he wouldn't go to the pound. Cassidy's femur is broken in 2 places. He needs to see a specialist and then get surgery. we need to raise donations so that we can pay for this." 

Money can be donated for the surgery through the Youcaring.com fundraising site. About $4,ooo needs to be raised, and the site has raised almost $700 so far.

UPDATE

Sondra Arrache of Save the Pets reports that Cassidy is at Oregon Veterinary Referral Associates and the group has enough for Cassideny's surgery.
