Stray Dog Needed Surgery To Amputate His Broken Leg, So 2nd-Graders Came Together To Help Save Him

A dog named Ryker was found abandoned with a broken leg last month in Topeka, Kansas. He was taken to the Helping Hands Humane Society in Topeka.

The shelter posted on their Facebook page, telling Ryker’s story and asking for donations to help pay for the surgery to amputate his leg.

A second grade class at Shawnee Heights Elementary School saw the shelter’s post online and knew instantly that they wanted to help this poor pup. Students collected as much money as they could, and got together $450 in just one day, which was enough money to pay for Ryker’s surgery!

Ryker was so thankful for the students’ generosity, that he went to visit them at school. The children were so happy and surprised to see their furry three-legged friend. They each received a personalized ‘thank you’ card, signed with a paw-print.
