NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A greyhound that suffered a broken leg after being struck by another dog will be getting the surgery he desperately needs.

Kasia Bednarska and her dog “Tali” were at Prospect Park on Monday when Bednarska said a much larger Pit Bull mix ran up and barreled into Tali, sending him flying.

Bednarska says she cried for help as she cradled her wounded dog, but the man and woman with the Pit Bull mix ignored her.

“They walked away, they walked off, they walked right away,” she said.

Bednarska says her flyers and online postings trying to reach the owners got no response.

“Whenever he moves, he’s crying and whining, sometimes I don’t sleep at night because he’s crying all night,” Bednarska said. “I think ethically, they should reach out to me. Maybe they don’t have money, I don’t know what’s in their head.”

Bednarska used her rent money to pay for the dog’s visit to the animal ER Monday and the veterinarian says Tali needs surgery that could cost $3,000.

After her story aired on CBS 2, she received enough donations to pay for the procedure, which is set for Tuesday.
