    A La Mesa family is hoping their nine year old dog "Oreo," can survive the night inside after eating at least one ball of meat filled with a highly toxic poison suspected to be strychnine. 

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) – Thanks to the generosity of News 8 viewers, the entire medical care for a dog who was poisoned in La Mesa is being covered.

Oreo was struggling to stay alive Saturday after poisoned meat was reportedly thrown over the fence.

A story was posted and so was a link to the owner's e-mail address on our Hot Button feature.

Less than 24 hours later, the bill is covered.

The family is also offering up a $5,000 reward to the person who can track down the person responsible for throwing the poisonous meatballs into their backyard.

In this News 8 video story, Doug Kolk reports from La Mesa with the outpouring of support.
