Viewer David Turner saw our story and was inspired to help, especially since Bennet is from the same area of West Virginia that he was from. He purchased a bus ticket to help her out.

Bennett's bus is scheduled to leave tomorrow morning but there was another hiccup - she wasn't allowed to bring her dog along. Turner continued his good deed by offering to watch the dog until other arrangements can be made.
