A dispatcher was unable to get the woman’s contact information before the woman, who may have been driving on I-40, hung up.

Fisher responded and found Rookie injured under the I-40 bridge. Fisher said she knew then she had to adopt Rookie, and she has.

After surgery, Rookie went home with Fisher. His left leg was broken in four places.

Rookie was first taken to the Deer Creek Animal Hospital in Harrah before he was taken to the OSU veterinary teaching hospital.

The Humane Society of the United States has offered up to $5,000 reward. Barry and Becky Switzer added $1,000, and Max Fairchild and the AutoMax dealership committed another $1,500 to bring the total to $7,500.

Anyone with information about the crime can call the Oklahoma County sheriff’s office at 869-2501.
