HAWTHORNE - A New Jersey rescue group is calling out for help in raising funds to save a dog's life.

A Pathway To Hope says Bianca, a young shepherd mix, was rescued after living on a short chain. The group says the dog was found to have several medical conditions and in dire need of lifesaving surgery.

The rescue organization will be holding a fundraiser for Bianca at Jake's Place at Rockledge Garden Center in Wayne on March 31.
