Revere kennel raises money to help injured dog rescued from highway

REVERE, MA (WHDH) - A Revere kennel is raising money to help an injured dog who was rescued from a highway.

The 1-year-old Husky, named Freeway, was hit by a car on Route 1A in Revere last week. He was left to die until a man driving by stopped and carried him to safety. Freeway was brought to an animal hospital but received minimal medical treatment because he is a stray. He was then brought to Ocean View Kennel.

Freeway suffered broken legs and a broken pelvis. The kennel started a GoFundMe to raise money so Freeway can undergo the multiple surgeries. The kennel’s page has surpassed its $6,000 goal and Freeway will be able to have his first surgery on Monday.

“He’s already been let down once, I’m not going to see him let down again,” said Lisa Cutting, the owner of Ocean View who started the GoFundMe page to help Freeway.

So far, Freeway’s owner has not come forward. Cutting said Freeway will eventually be up for adoption after he recovers.
