Rescuers raise enough money to save pregnant dog shot in Fayette County


Last week, Channel 11 reported that a pregnant dog was shot and a local group was looking for help to pay for her medical bills.

On Tuesday, Channel 11 learned the group of rescuers has received enough money to help Momma Mills.

Momma Mills was one of 80 animals recently removed from a property in Uniontown, Fayette County.

Momma was taken to the vet, and X-rays showed she had been shot in the face.

Several of her teeth were broken, and the metal remains of the bullet are affecting her sinuses.

“She’s a really good dog.  She stands to have a really good chance at life if we can get her better,” said Dawn Weichler.

Once the dog undergoes surgery, she could be up for adoption.
