A New York animal shelter is seeking donations of Viagra to treat a pit bull with a heart condition.
Staff members at the Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center in Huntington, on Long Island, say 6-year-old Ingrid needs two of the little blue pills every day or she will risk heart failure. They say a vet suggested it.
The pills cost about $10 apiece, and the shelter has been asking Viagra users to pitch in and donate their unused pills.
Viagra was originally developed as a heart medication but is now used mainly by men to give their sex lives a boost.
