TENAFLY, N.J. -- A fundraiser staged by a pet rescue organization in Tenafly for an abused Yorkie kept in a basement cage for 7 months raised more than $15,500 in its first week.

Robyn Urman sought to help meet Ginger's expected $20,000 in medical bills after rescuers from Brookyn found her emaciated, with three broken legs ( SEE: Dumont, Tenafly Advocates Unite To Save Abused Yorkie ).

She and Dumont pet spa owner Lisa Pagnozzi brought the story to News12 New Jersey and Daily Voice, which reported on Wednesday that Ginger's owner had been cited ( SEE: Dumont, Tenafly Pet Advocates Cheer Charges In Dog Cruelty Case ).

"Ginger has two broken front legs and a broken back leg from being confined in a small space for such a long period of time," Pagnozzi, who owns Somethin' To Wag about Pet Spa & Boutique, told Daily Voice. "She was so underweight [that] all of her bones were showing."

A Shih Tzu found with her was released from medical care to volunteers.

Ginger was expected to continue recovering at Yonkers Specialty CenterĀ "for two-three weeks minimum," said Urman, of Dumont. "Surgeries are at least three months away, at approximately $4,000-5,000 per leg times three, at best.

"She has [physical therapy] every day and the swim tank 3 times a week. Bills are already over $4,500, which are paid, thank God."

Meanwhile, Pagnozzi's spa was offering a donation to Pet ResQ for every dog groomed there in December.

The GoFundMe Link had collected $4,320 as of Wednesday morning.

That figure shot up overnight.
