(MARTINSVILLE) - The Morgan County Humane Society needs funds to repair Mabel's "broken heart".

Executive Director Angie Loudermilk says the three-month-old puppy won't last one month if she doesn't a have life-saving surgery soon to repair her heart.

The 15-pound hound mix arrived at the Morgan County Humane Society a few weeks ago after being abandoned. Doctors noticed Mabel had blood leaking from a hole in her heart.

Local officials have been calling cardiologists all over the state to find someone to repair Mabel's heart. Loudermilk says veterinarians in Martinsville and Indianapolis don't have the necessary equipment to treat her. However, Purdue University does.

Cardiac specialists have agreed to perform this life-saving surgery for $1,500 dollars. Petsmart Charities has agreed to provide a matching grant towards community donations. 95 dollars has been raised so far. Her surgery date is set for October 14.

Donations to help fix Mabel's broken heart can be sent to the Morgan County Humane Society.
