Oak Park Retirement Community in Salisbury must love dogs.
One dog in particular has touched their hearts: Damien Jo, the American pit bull terrier who survived being dragged down Jake Alexander Boulevard after somehow falling from the bed of his owner’s pickup.
Damien spent a week at an animal hospital and is now recovering at home.
Crystal Lambert — the woman who witnessed the incident and stopped Damien Jo’s owner, Robert Craver, from dragging Damien further — and several Oak Park residents have coordinated a dog walk and dog show to help pay the medical costs for Damien.
Registration begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at Oak Park Retirement Community, 548 White Oaks Drive, and the dog walk and show will begin at 10:45 a.m.
The cost is $5 to walk and $7 to walk and take part in the dog show.
Oak Park residents will be judging the show, which is open to the public. There will also be a raffle. All proceeds will go to the Salisbury Animal Hospital to help with Carver’s vet bills.
For more information, call 704-636-4600.
