CALIFORNIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – There is a heartwarming story out of California Wednesday morning.
A man is set to be reunited with his dog thanks to a campaign on Facebook and the kindness of strangers.
Dave Thomas was arrested last week on existing traffic violations and his best friend, Buzz Lightyear, was impounded.
He was told he needed $400 to get the dog back, half of it by Wednesday, or the adoption process would begin.
A regular visitor to the shelter saw Thomas crying in front of Buzz's cage and snapped a photo, and it went viral.
In just a few days strangers donated the money to get Buzz out and have him neutered.
Thomas will be taking Buzz home Wednesday.
