MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Man’s best friend was the man of the hour Saturday afternoon at a fundraiser in south Minneapolis.

Underdog Rescue and Sweet Retreat Bakery on 50th Street and France Avenue hosted the event for a dog named Turtle, a puppy mill survivor.

Turtle has been going through treatments for pneumonia, and his vet bills have reached more than $10,000.

Shannon McKenzie, director of Underdog Rescue, says every $1 cupcake sold at the fundraiser will help offset some of those expenses.

“We’ve been reaching out to the community to help us help him, so that we can continue rescuing from puppy mills, which is our passion,” McKenzie said.

Turtle is getting better, but still has a ways to go on the path to recovery.
