“3-month old Kismet, a boxer-mix puppy, came to LHS at the end of April. She was found abandoned in the hallway of an apartment building, and her right hind leg was severely fractured,” according to the pup’s fundraiser page.

“Kismet needed costly surgery to repair the leg — at her age, with lots of growing yet to do, her long-term health and mobility is at stake. We believe in giving animals second chances.”

Anyone looking to help the cause can make a donation online ranging from $25 to $2,500, though an “other” option is also available.

As of early this afternoon, $1,470 was raised as the organization strives to hit their goal of $5,000.
