P!nk to the Rescue!!!

Singer Saves Puppy

from Certain Death

12/23/2011 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pink
P!nk just came through with a canine Christmas miracle -- shelling out $5,000 to pay for emergency life-saving surgery on a puppy that had been tossed in the L.A. river and left for dead.

Sources tell TMZ ... P!nk was surfing the Internet recently, when she stumbled upon a story about a puppy that had been thrown off an L.A. overpass ... and suffered 3 broken legs when it landed in the L.A. river.

We're told the dog was in bad shape ... and required major surgery FAST ... or else.

That's when P!nk sprung into action -- contacting the Ace of Hearts animal rescue organization and offering to pay for any medical expense it took to save the dog's life.

$5,000 later ... the dog went under the knife -- and recovered!!

And it gets better -- we're told the dog has since been adopted by a loving family ... and will probably get a big, juicy bone for Christmas.

Bravo, Pink! What a kind-hearted thing to have done. How anyone could throw an animal out like that is terrible. Thanks for being one of the few celebrities who isn't just thinking about themselves when the cameras aren't there.

And that's why I love Pink and always have . She has a loving heart. When you give love, you get love back in return. The little dog is now with a wonderful loving forever family. What a wonderful ending .

would be better if she could have saved a human.
maybe a surgery to save or restore eyesight, or a child, for whatever the reason..instead of picking a dog, pick up a human.
much more to say-but u get the drift.
