Philipsburg, PA – The community is pulling together to raise money for a dog that was shot at close range in the face in Clearfield County.

Lottie, the 4-year-old mastiff mix that was found in Hawk Run last week severely injured, has had her first round of surgeries and is recovering well.

The rescue group that is taking care of her, called “One Dog at a Time”, says Lottie still has a long road ahead of her.

A benefit car wash is scheduled for Saturday, June 30 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at 319 North Centre Street in Philipsburg. Learn more at the event Facebook page.

However, you can make a donation anytime directly to the group. To help with Lottie’s surgery and continued care, donations can be sent via their website www.onedogatatime.us or PayPal [email protected] Please put “Lottie” in the comments. The mailing address is ODAAT 155 Macintosh Drive, Palmyra PA 17078.

Although the investigation is ongoing and police have leads, there’s no official word on who shot the dog.

They are offering a reward for information. Although an active animal cruelty investigation is underway, they are asking that anyone with information can call 717-248-2902.

Volunteers say that Lottie has been sweet and docile.

Thanks to ODAAT volunteer, Lynda Lamb for giving this sweet girl time to trust her, picking this poor girl up, transporting her to the vets and putting herself through the emotional pain that it takes when dealing with these types of cases. This is not something that is easily forgotten for the volunteers.

Many people have reached out saying that they would be willing to adopt Lottie after she heals.

Depending on how everything turns out, the dog will likely be taken in by someone who has already been helping her.

But remember, there are plenty of animals at our local animal shelters who need your help just as much as the dog in this story does. They would love to be a part of your home.

Turn an animals’ heartbreak into happiness. If you have room in your home and your heart, consider adopting from your local shelter. And if you can’t adopt, you can always help out by making a donation or volunteering.
