Manhattan students raised enough money through bake sales to save a pit bull.
Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer recognized students and staff from the Stephen Gaynor School in the Upper West Side today for raising money to save the life of pit pull terrier Misty.
Less than a year old, Misty was left badly injured on a Brooklyn street corner after being used as bait to train fighting dogs.
Her rescuers set up a Facebook page for the dog, which the students, ages 10 to 12, noticed.
Their bake sales raised more than $650 to pay for Misty's veterinary costs.
