Donors have contributed more than $20,000 to a fund set up for a dog shot and left for dead in Amelia.

Morgan, a one-year-old puppy, had a front leg amputated and requires even more surgery on her back legs after she was shot several times.

The Capitol Area Rescue Effort (CARE) raised thousands of dollars, but got a big boost Tuesday with media reports on their efforts. In less than 24 hours the efforts GoFundMe page brought in more than $15,000. 

The group was hoping to raise $3,000 to fund two more surgeries, as well as a little extra for physical therapy after the procedure. CARE says the extra funds raised will be used to help other needy dogs in their rescue, including Luna, a husky mix with a broken pelvis.

Morgan's first surgery is scheduled for March 28.  There will be an eight week recuperation period between the two surgeries. 

Once recovered, Morgan may be used as a therapy dog to help children and even veterans who have gone through similar situations.

If you would like to contribute to Morgan's medical costs you can donate online at  or contact CARE at 804-291-7918.
