NORTH SYDNEY, N.S. - Thousands of dollars have been raised for a homeless man found seriously beaten in a Cape Breton grocery store parking lot.

Julia Hawkins of Little Pond, N.S., set up an online fundraising account on Thursday hoping to raise $1,000.

By Saturday morning, donors had contributed more than $13,000 for the 48-year-old man and his dog.

Police say they found an injured man in a North Sydney parking lot Monday night.

    For every action is a reaction.... some are victimized but is allows the light to shine on the good too...for our hearts to witness....So it sounds like his Dog was there with him.....I wish the reporters were informing us what many are asking....yes he is hurt, but is his dog ok??? ... because this woman mentioned it, I can only assume the dog is cared for as well....they are a good team and both the dog and the man will be worried for each other.
