Paris and Prince Jackson are helping raise money for a Scooby Roo, a two-legged puppy needing mechanical legs.

So the King of Pop's children share their father's compassion for animals? They heard about the sixth-month -old puppy while watching the news, according to this TMZ story.

Fuzzy Rescue, a Santa Monica, Calif., rescue group, is taking care of Scooby Roo and says on its website that it needs $2,000 to get him outfitted with a cart and therapy. Ultimately, Scooby Roo, who was probably born this way, will also need adopting.

We did a story last week about all the technological advances for physically challenged pets and the lessons people learn from these brave animals.
