MUHLENBERG CO., KY (WFIE) -

Muhlenberg County officials need your help after a local mascot was hit by a car.

Bella the dog is a mascot for the Greenville Fire Department.

On July 4, Bella was hit by a car outside the fire station and dragged for more than 20-feet before the car stopped.

Bella sustained severe injuries to her back legs. She had surgery Wednesday morning.

The Greenville Fire Department started 'Bucks for Bella' to raise money to pay for her expenses.

Officials say they've raised about $800 thus far, but need over $2,000.

"She's more than a pet to this agency and to the ladies at the courthouse. And gentleman that work in my office. And the police department. She's more than a pet. If you had a bad or stressful day, she's always wagging her tail and glad to see you. She's just the town mascot," says Laura Armstrong, President of the Muhlenberg County Humane Society.

If you would like to donate money for Bella, you can drop it off at the Muhlenberg County courthouse, Greenville Fire Department, and Greenville Police Department.
