OAKLAND PARK, Fla. -- In a story Oct. 5 about the search for a disabled dog in Florida, The Associated Press erroneously reported the name of the charity involved in the search. The correct name is 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Florida disabled dog goes missing when car is stolen
Florida animal rescue groups are helping a woman find her beloved disabled dog after her car was stolen with the husky mix inside
OAKLAND PARK, Fla. (AP) — Florida animal rescue groups are helping a woman find her beloved disabled dog after her car was stolen with the husky mix inside.
WFOR-TV reports Wanda Ferrari had left the car running with the air conditioning on for her dog Zorra while she popped into a Dollar Tree store in Oakland Park, Florida.
Zorra uses a pink wheelchair to walk because its back legs are paralyzed. But the 13-year-old dog was lying on a pillow in the backseat and not in the wheelchair when the 2005 blue Volvo station wagon was taken.
Ferrari says the dog is her constant companion as she deals with a breast cancer recurrence.
Rescue group 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida hired a pet detective and is now offering a $2,000 reward for returning the dog.
