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, N.Y., say 6-year-old Ingrid needs two of the little blue pills every day or she will risk heart failure. They said 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 human males to give their sex lives a boost.

One woman donated her husband's stash to the dog because she suspected he was having an affair.
