The friends and family of a dog shot by police in Hatboro this weekend have started an online fundraising page to help offset the cost of vet bills. The GoFundMe page, created Saturday, has raised more than $5,500 as of Tuesday afternoon.
According to friends and family, the dog, Lola, was shot by police Saturday after she left her yard. She will need surgery, which the family says is estimated to cost approximately $6,000.
According to a summary on the page, the dog approached a neighbor in a “friendly manner” and was shot by police. “Lola's life is now on the line over a senseless act of violence,” the GoFundMe page reads.
Hatboro police have not released a statement about the incident.
