Dwayne Johnson has donated $1500 so that a very sick pooch, The Rock, can get a life saving surgery.

His generosity may be a result of his love for animals. Or the fact that the pooch shared a name with the famous movie star.

The dog was all fur and bones with his mouth wired shut when the Los Angeles shelter found him. The shelter found that the dog had a grade 6 heart murmur that required a $4,500 surgery, TMZ reports.

Hangover 2 star Jamie Chung also donated $600. At present, The Rock needs $365 for his surgery and the shelter is planning to use any extra cash it raises for surgeries of dogs in need.
