Sgt. Dahlberg paid the bill, but she mentioned that Christmas was going to be a little tough this year for her kids.Gina Knepp, Front Street's manager, told Fox News Sacramento:

The woman paid her bill, which we love when people do. But she said, if my kids have to give up Christmas to save Ginger, that's just what we're going to have to do.

Moved by her love for her dog, Knepp and the other volunteers at the shelter decided to set up a collection, and asked people to donate to help the soldier with her bill.

A person in uniform, protecting our country, sick dog, Christmas, the child..it just tugs at your heart. [...] If we can help someone's life be better, as well as their animals ... that's a double-A plus.

Ginger is back home where she belongs, and she was so relieved to see her mom again.

A beautiful reunion <3Ginger ran away several weeks ago, and Sergeant Dahlberg and her daughter were afraid their beloved puppy was lost forever. But after constant searching, they found Ginger on our website – and you can see how happy both she and her family were to be reunited. Unfortunately she got parvovirus while she was stray. This disease can be lethal, but we were able to find treatment soon enough, and it looks like she’ll make a full recovery now that she’s back in her loving home.Posted by Front Street Animal Shelter - City of Sacramento on Tuesday, November 29, 2016
