CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - One local pooch is on the mend after being hit by a car. But his road to recovery is far from over. 

4-month old Rupert is a hound and lab mix. Rupert was hit by a car, but the people who brought him into a vet clinic were unable to pay his medical bills.

X-rays at the clinic showed Rupert had two fractures, one on each of his left legs. Now, he is in need of extensive surgery and medical care. 

The estimated cost of surgery is about $4,000. But you can help! Click here to donate to Rupert's recovery fund.
