PHOENIX - A puppy thrown from a car was two hours from being euthanized when a rescue group stepped up to claim her.
Juno was thrown from a car, resulting in two broken elbows and road rash, according to Carla Simon with Phoenix Animal Care Coalition 911.
Simon said Juno underwent surgery on Thursday in which screws were placed in her legs. Because of the location of the injuries she was not able to be put in a cast.
The surgery will cost $3,500 and PACC911's Lulu's Angel Fund is paying $2,500 of that.
If you would like to help pay for Juno's care, you can go to www.PACC911.org and click on Lulu's Angel Fund. Anything collected above the cost of the surgery remains in Lulu's Angel Fund for the next victim.
Juno was rescued by Helping Orphaned Hounds .
Lulu's Angel Fund has already paid for the medical costs of six cases so far this year, Simon said.
