The court ruled that the Jack Russell, named Kim, would have to be put down due to her behavior, leaving her 84-year-old owner devastated.

Now, English comedian Ricky Gervais has joined the fight to save Kim after a Twitter user highlighted the case to him.

Retweeting a post about Donal and Kim that asked for “high public exposure”, the Office creator said: “This is so sad and frustrating. Anyone out there know how this dog can be saved? #SaveKim”

Ricky’s tweet has received almost 2,300 likes and 650 retweets.

Thousands of euros have been collected online as part of a campaign to save Kim’s life.

More than 600 people have donated €12,490 in a bid to help Mr. Rogers and his beloved pup – surpassing the fundraiser’s goal of €5,000.
