ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (AP) -- A dog rescued from death row now has a home in North Carolina after surviving a car crash and 24 days lost in Virginia.

The Rocky Mount Telegram reported that Felix is a beagle-German shepherd mix rescued from the Nash County Animal Shelter.

After staying with Amy Woodworth of Rocky Mount during treatment for heartworm, Felix was headed to a rescue group in Vermont. Their van crashed on Interstate 95 in Emporia and Felix was ejected.

A network of animal lovers in North Carolina and Virginia worked together to search for Felix anda Facebook page was even made. The dog was found last week at an apartment complex in Emporia.

Now he has a home with Woodworth and her boyfriend's family.
