TOLEDO, Ohio (WTOL) - A Northwest Ohio woman is raising money for the Toledo Humane Society in honor of her dog's former owner.

37-year-old Elizabeth Carroll's dog Daisy was left homeless when she was killed in a car accident in June.

Suzanne Buehrer adopted Daisy. "I just can't imagine that one day her mom didn't come home, and I was like, I've got to help this dog."

Instead of flowers, Carroll's family asked for donations for the Toledo Humane Society. As a result, Buehrer founded "Dollars for Daisy" to benefit the Toledo Humane Society.

Because of an online message, Suzanne had Elizabeth's parents and former roommate over for dinner. They support the campaign to raise money in Carroll and Daisy's honor.

"I'm just trying to inspire the Toledo area, the Lucas County community to donate dollars for Daisy," said Buehrer.
