LAUGHLINTOWN (KDKA) – A fundraiser is being held this weekend for a runaway dog that was rescued by a group of concerned community members.

The dog’s name is Waggles.

His former owner had to give him up and he was on his way to a new home in Ligonier when he took off.

He was found weeks later, thanks to a huge community rescue effort. However, he is in need of supplies.

A fundraiser is being planned for Saturday, Feb. 5 from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Ligonier County Inn in Laughlintown.

Organizers will be accepting donations in the form of cash, pet supplies, or tax deductible donations sent to the Somerset County Humane Society with the name “Waggles” in the memo area.
