When Detective Ryan Salmon happened upon the scene of an accident in Takoma, Washington, he found the service dog for a wheelchair bound girl lying injured after being hit by a car that fled.

The policeman brought the dog, named Spice, which had leg fractures, to the veterinary hospital.

Later that day, when he called to check up on Spice, he learned that the girl’s mother, a single mom, could not afford the X-rays and treatment needed for the dog.

So he “did the right thing” and told the vet to send him the $200 bill.

The girl’s mother was astounded that a total stranger would do such a wonderful thing.
