The Bobby Bones Show Helps Save Stray Dog's Life

Two weeks ago, radio listeners of The Bobby Bones Show banded together to help a stray dog receive life-saving surgery.
Here's what happened: Bones received an email from a woman named Sherron who witnessed a dog get hit by a car.
The dog, named "Frankie," was in need of surgery for a broken hip and two badly hurt legs. Bones, who most listeners know is a dog lover, enlisted the help of his audience to raise $5,000 to pay for Frankie's surgery, and in just a few days, they surpassed their goal.
Bones stated, "Sherron was concerned for the dog because of his injuries, but couldn't afford to pay for his surgery. Luckily, we have awesome listeners. Thanks to their generosity, we quickly covered the entire cost of Frankie's medical care, and hopefully, he will be back on his feet in no time!"
