DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A new program, aimed at raising money for Dallas animals in need, is already proving successful.

Earlier this week, CBS 11 profiled a two month old puppy named Duchess at Dallas Animal Services, who needs an exam and surgery to correct one little problem.

Dr. Cate McManus, with Dallas Animal Services, says it’s one thing that’s keeping the super sweet and playful puppy from being adopted.

“The fact that she constantly urinates. I think most people would find, not such a great trait for a pet,” said Dr. McManus.

Since Duchess’ story aired, donors have contributed as little as one dollar and as much as $500 to raise more than three thousand dollars for the puppy’s medical treatment…and the contributions keep coming in. That’s considerably more than $2500 Dallas Animal Services needed to treat Duchess, but workers there say additional funds will be used for the next ill or injured adoptable dog or cat that comes in.

Meanwhile, Duchess will be evaluated next Wednesday and will hopefully have a new home, shortly after that.
