Yogi the fire dog has been a staple at Local 74, the firehouse at 120 West 83rd street, for a decade. You may have seen him at the firehouse or on the scene of an incident. Yogi has been in the hospital lately getting tested for possible neurological problems, and the firehouse is raising money to help pay for the care. Happily, Yogi was released from the hospital on Saturday night, but doctors are planning to continue tests to determine what’s wrong. As the firefighters wrote:
“Hopefully as time goes on, he will progressively get better. Unfortunately for us, the Vet Bills are still piling up. We covers Yogi’s bills as a firehouse family, so we all cover the expenses together by pooling our funds to cover costs. Whatever you can spare to help ease the burden is truly appreciated! And please, keep the well wishes coming, Yogi and his firehouse need them!”
As of Sunday morning, the campaign had raised about $3,000 of the $10,000 they are seeking to raise. If you’d like to help out, go to this page to donate.
