( - The Gulf Coast Humane Society needs donations to fund surgery for a 3-month-old pointer mix puppy.

Beauty suffered a traumatic incident that damaged her back right leg, leaving her in pain, according to a Humane Society release. She needs the neck and head of her femur removed to alleviate the pain, a process known as a Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO).

The surgery will cost an estimated $900, taking into account a discount given to Humane Society animals.

The Humane Society is asking for donations to its Second Chance Fund, which funds medical care for sick and special needs pets, such as Beauty.
