Efforts to save a San Francisco landmark have paid off.

Three deteriorating Doggie Diner heads will be restored after supporters raised more than $48,000 on Kickstarter.

John Law owns the giant figurines known as "Manny, Moe and Jack." They became fixtures at the former Doggie Diner restaurant chain which closed in the 80s.

The new funds will be used to restore and store the figurine heads. Law also hopes to display them at city events.
