Tonawanda News — The puppy is touching hearts all over the region, her open trusting face the source of much comment on the Internet. There is a fundraising site set up on the SPCA website www.niagaraspca.org to pay for her care and funds above and beyond will go into the SPCA’s general emergency fund. There are no significant leads as to who may have abused the dog, Lewis said, but several people have already inquired about adopting the puppy.
As for the two sanitation workers who took the time to tend to a wounded puppy, there have been more than a few kudos. Lewis visited them at Modern Corp. on Thursday to thank them personally for their efforts. Afterward, TV crew interviewed them about the rescue. And clearly, the top brass at Modern were paying attention to the kindness of their two employees. “They did a great job,” said company spokerperson Steve Toponak. “It’s nice that they were so compassionate.”
