Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A volunteer pilot flew an ailing puppy from western Kentucky to Louisville for treatment on Monday. Henderson County Animal Control said the dog was hit by a car intentionally on Sunday night.

According to the Arrow Fund, a non-profit organization that provides medical treatment for animals that have been abused, the female puppy suffered multiple pelvis fractures, fractured legs and road rash in the incident in Henderson County.

Dr. Jeff Allen, a volunteer pilot, flew to Henderson County on Monday, picked up the puppy and flew her to Bowman Field in Louisville. An Arrow Fund representative met the pup at the airport and took her to a Louisville animal hospital for treatment.

The Arrow Fund is accepting donations to help pay for the puppy's care. Donations can be made at thearrowfund.org. Checks can be mailed to The Arrow Fund, P.O. Box 1127, Prospect, KY 40059.

A medical foster home is also needed for the dog, which does not yet have a name.
